On May 14, our long-time friend and co-worker Evelyn Erlandsen passed away after a long courageous fight with cancer. She was 57. As her family noted in her obituary, she passed away comfortably at home on Mother’s Day.
It wasn’t as though we didn’t know about her heroism. A member of the Water Resources team on three separate occasions – she kept returning home! -- Evelyn resigned from her position with the Colorado River Management team in late April, just weeks before her passing. Our colleague was strong.
