Calantha Joy (Geiszler) Evans, beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister, granddaughter, aunt, niece, and friend, passed unexpectedly into the glory of heaven July 19, 2021. She danced into the waiting arms of Jesus Christ, her superhero.
Cally was born April 12, 1977 in Morris, MN to Linde (Ellingson) Ditmarson and Donald Geiszler. She spent her childhood in Morris and Willmar, MN where she attended school. While in Willmar, she met her soulmate of 29 years, Jeremy Evans. They married July 12, 1997 and soon after, Cally graduated from the University of Minnesota, Morris. Their 24 years of marriage included many cherished moments together. They shared wonderful memories living in Willmar, moving to Tulsa, OK, and Chandler, AZ, and becoming parents to their two amazing girls.
Cally’s greatest legacy is the love she had for her family and friends, especially her daughters, Madelaine Joy and Elleahna Jul. Her beautiful, sweet spirit lives on through them and is exemplified in the strengths of character they demonstrate. Her love for her children and husband was endless.
Cally was a deep intellectual, philosophizer, and conversationalist. She brought her own unique perspective to all she did. She had a myriad of interests including quantum physics, reading, current events, sci-fi movies, dancing, hip hop and jazz music, truth seeking, home organization and cleanliness, and crafting. She loved the sunshine, coffee, and anything that smelled good.
Faith in Jesus Christ was the foundation of Cally’s life. Her faith was an example to those around her. Through her faith, Cally was able to face her health challenges with strength, courage, and stubborn determination.
Cally is survived by her husband, Jeremy, and daughters, Maddie and Ellie; her parents, Linde Ditmarson (Dave) and Don Geiszler (Solange); sisters, Nyssa Poulson, Kylla Olsen, Anna Geiszler, and Lydia Geiszler; brothers, Caleb Ditmarson and Roberto Gameiro; her grandmother, Eunice Ellingson; parents-in-law, Sandy and Barry Evans; godparents, Dave and Phyllis Geiszler; many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was preceded in death by her angel baby, Ezekiel; grandfathers, Reuben Ellingson and Wilmer Geiszler; grandmother, Mildred Geiszler; and dear friend, Betty Jacobson.
A celebration of Cally’s life will take place on Sunday, August 29, 2021 at the The Log Cabin at the Kandiyohi County Fair Grounds from 1-3, with a program at 1:30.
