New courthouse bench honors Evans
It’s hard to miss the new bright blue bench on the northwest corner of the Phillips County Court House lawn in Holyoke. The bench was installed in December in memory of Mary Louise Evans.
Evans, who died last August, served as the Phillips County clerk and recorder from 1963-2003, including 10 unopposed elections. In addition to the Holyoke bench, Evans’ family is also putting one in the southeast section of the Haxtun park by the water feature.
