Biographical History

Alice Hazel Stallings Evans (1885-1992) was a Mormon mother and wife of academic Robert James Evans (1881-1967).

Alice Hazel Stallings Evans was born on November 25, 1885, in Coalville, Utah, to parents Heber Joseph and Sarah Elizabeth Wilde Stallings. She attended Brigham Young University, where she met her husband, Robert James Evans. They were married on August 21, 1907, in Salt Lake City, Utah. After graduation from BYU, the family moved to Logan, Utah, where they attended Utah Agricultural College; Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, where Rob earned a PhD; Lehi, Utah, where they farmed and raised a yard full of chickens; Ogden, Utah, where Rob taught at Weber College; back to Lehi, then to Logan, Utah, where Rob served as the head of the Agronomy Department. During all of the moves, Alice was highly active in church, club, and college activities, such as Sunday school teacher, Relief Society teacher, and Mutual leadership, Daughters of the Utah Pioneers, Kappa Delta Mother's Club, football and basketball games, Faculty Women's League, and duties as the wife of the department chairman. She loved the social life and the people in each city they lived. Alice kept a tidy house, with all the normal duties of cooking, cleaning, preserving, and raising children. In 1954, when Rob retired, the family moved back to Lehi one last time, where Alice lived until her death.

Alice Hazel Stallings Evans died on January 20, 1992, in Lehi, Utah.
