      PRINCETON _ Winifred Bentley Evans, 74, passed away on Sunday.

      Born in Pulaski NY., she attended William Smith College in 1947 where she met Thomas L. Evans, who attended Hobart College. They married on August 19, 1950 and had four children.

      She later continued her education through the Mary K. Bunting Program, a continuing education program for mature women at Douglass College. In 1971, she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics and began her teaching career.

      She taught mathematics from 1972 to 1981 at Saint Joseph's Preparatory Academy in Kingston, and at The Lawrenceville School from 1981 until she retired from teaching in 1993. She was active in All Saints' Episcopal Church, and enjoyed tennis, knitting, reading, and spending time with her family. She is survived by her husband, Thomas L. Evans, her four children, Mark, Tom, Janine, and Brenda, and her twelve grandchildren. She is also survived by her three sisters, Janet Johnson, Jean Jones, and Dorothy Krespan.

      She will be deeply missed by her grandchildren Morgan, Meredyth, and Sam from the Mark and Kim Evans family; Ben and Tommy from the Tom and Margaret Evans family; Jeremy, Danny, and Nate from the Janine and Michael Bernick family; and Sarah, Laura Ali, and Andy from the Brenda and Andy Armstrong Family.

      Winifred (Winnie) was a very kind, generous, and loving soul who yearned for peace on earth and continued to touch everyone in her life, even through her final days. She felt strongly that people need to be tolerant and accepting towards their fellow persons and to treat one another with respect and dignity. We will miss her very much.

      A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m on Saturday, April 12 at All Saints' Episcopal Church, at 16 All Saints' Road in Princeton, NJ.

      Donations in Winifreds' memory can be made to the Mary I. Bunting Program, care of Ms. Susan Sturgill, The Associate Alumnae of Douglass College, 181 Ryders Lane, New Brunswick, N.J. 08901.

      Arrangements are under the direction of The Mather-Hodge Funeral Home, Princeton, NJ.
