Evelyn Nilsen Bolinder, 91, passed away October 6, 2023. She was born October 26, 1931 in Chicago to Einar and Gunvor (Torkelsen) Nilsen. She graduated from Jones Commercial High School and was a secretary until her retirement in the mid 1980’s. She married Lennart Bolinder in 1953 and they lived on the Northwest side of Chicago until 1988 when they retired to North Port, Florida. A few years after her husband’s death she moved back to Illinois to be closer to her children and settled in Del Webb in Huntley. She loved playing cards and volunteering.
