Evonne C. Lockman

January 17, 1940-April 11, 2024

Evonne C. Lockman passed peacefully in Sisters on April 11, 2024.

She was born January 17, 1940 in a ranch house in Kintyre, North Dakota to Jacob and Freida Moch and was the oldest of 15 children. She attended Presentation College in Aberdeen, South Dakota, majoring in secretarial science.

In 1965, she moved with her family to Oregon where she met Kenneth Lockman of Pleasant Hill. They married on July 3, 1965. Evonne enjoyed being a stay-at-home mom and volunteered in church and school activities. Later she returned to her secretarial career.

Evonne is survived by her children: Jeffrey and Doris Lockman of Redmond, Joseph Lockman of Aloha, Julie and Paul Patton of Sisters, and Lisa and Cody Davis of Seattle. She was a proud grandparent of six grandchildren: Butch Hartman, Samuel Patton, Gabriel Patton, Kenneth Patton, Josie Patton, and Cullen Davis.

She enjoyed spending time with family and friends, gardening, writing letters, vacationing, and was a devout Catholic praying for all who suffered. She loved beautiful things - flowers, paintings, a tidy house, an orderly garden - and was always willing to help those around her.

She was preceded in death by Kenneth C. Lockman, husband of 55 years, and will be interred alongside him in St. Winefride's Garden at St. Edward Catholic Church in Sisters on May 3 at 11 a.m.

Those wishing to honor Evonne can make a donation to St. Winefride's Garden care of 'St. Edward the Martyr' in memory of her prayerful devotion and love of gardening.
