Finderne- S. Johana "Jennie" Evans nee Bulka, 92, passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 19, 2012 at McCarrick Care Center in Somerset. Prior to her move to McCarrick, Johana lived her entire life in the Finderne section of Bridgewater. A graduate of Somerville High School, Johana spent most of her work life as a key-punch operator and billing clerk at Johns Manville until retirement. After her retirement, she worked at Storr Tractor in Branchburg.
Johana loved spending time with her grandchildren. Although she could not see it, she was a talented cook and baker. She was very adventurous; she would try new recipes, travel and she even used a laptop when most people did not even have one! Johana was an avid animal lover and loved to sing. She also enjoyed knitting and crocheting. She never had a bad word to say about anyone.
Johana is predeceased by her parents John and Caroline Bulka; her husband of 47 years, George Evans as well as her 5 siblings. She leaves behind to cherish her memory, her daughters Barbara Peyrek and husband Tom and Dotti Evans and spouse Teri Laudicina, their families as well as several nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews.
