Evelyn M. (Tech) Gwynn was born on May 4, 1924, to the union of Herbert and Mary (Ronfeldt) Tech in Tuthill, SD.  She passed away peacefully Thursday afternoon, September 2, 2021 at Gordon Countryside Care.   

Evelyn received her formal education from Bennett County High School in Martin, South Dakota.  Shortly after graduation, she married Jim Gwynn on January 23, 1944 and to this union, two children were born: Blaine and Tina.  

Evelyn was a member of the First Presbyterian Church and Eastern Star, and was an avid card player in numerous clubs.  She enjoyed walking, gardening, cards, arts and crafts, sewing, baking and, above all else, spending time with her grandchildren.    

Evelyn led by example. There was never a job too large or too small that she would not tackle. She was a strong, determined and fiercely dedicated woman.  

Evelyn was preceded in death by her husband, James “Jim” Gwynn and her 2 children, son Blaine Gwynn and daughter Tina (Gwynn) Mills.  

She is survived by son-in-law Bob Mills of Gordon; two grandsons, Charlie (Michelle) Gwynn of O’ Fallon, IL, and Jesse Gwynn of San Antonio, TX; one granddaughter, Bailie (Bailey) Mills-Burress of Cody, NE; and three great-grandsons.

A special thank you to the wonderful doctors and nurses at Gordon Countryside Care who provided invaluable care.
