Evelyn Alma Hollrah Mundt Meyer

April 17, 1923 — February 28, 2022

Evelyn Alma Hollrah was born April 17, 1923 to Carl and Anna Elise (Clausen) Hollrah, near Charter Oak, Iowa. She was called to her heavenly home on February 28, 2022, just weeks shy of her 99th birthday.

She was raised in and around Charter Oak, attended St John's Lutheran Church in Charter Oak, and graduated from Charter Oak High School.

After graduation, she took a train to California to work as a riveter at a Lockheed-affiliated plant during World War II. She was quickly promoted to be secretary in the plant's FBI security office.

At the end of the war, she returned to Iowa where she became a hairstylist and opened her own beauty shop in Ricketts. In 1945 she married John P. Mundt of Ricketts, Iowa, owner of the town's Chevrolet dealership. They had two daughters, Anitra and JoNel while in Ricketts.

In 1957 they moved to Scottsbluff, Nebraska where they raised their daughters while John worked in auto and agricultural sales, and Evelyn worked as a market researcher. She also worked as the Western Nebraska liaison for United States Senator Zorinsky, and then was Scotts Bluff County Clerk. She followed this by conducting election research for CBS News during several election cycles.

Her husband John died in 1991, and Evelyn moved to Southern California where they had often wintered. In 1995 she married Freemon Meyer of the Hemet, California area, until his death in 1997.

Evelyn is survived by her two daughters Anitra (husband Rod), and JoNel (husband Richard), all of Northern California, her brother Donald of Denison, Iowa and many nieces and nephews.

The funeral service will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, March 10, 2022 at St. John Lutheran Church in Charter Oak with interment to follow at St. John Lutheran Cemetery also in Charter Oak. Memorials may be directed to St. John Lutheran Church.
