Colleen Evans Abate, our sweet mother, grandmother, sister, and friend, passed away peacefully at her home in Syracuse surrounded by her children and grandchildren. She was born October 7, 1932, in Lehi, Utah to Ruel and Beulah Bone Evans. 

 

She graduated from Lehi High School in 1950 and attended BYU. She married James J. Abate on December 24, 1959. He died in 1977. They resided in Sunset, Utah for many years. She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She was an avid reader and a huge fan of the Utah Jazz!
