SANDOVAL, DR. EVELYN  
EVELYN SANDOVAL Dr. Evelyn "Coca" Abrogar Sandoval, age 80, passed away peacefully Aug. 19, 2015. To quote her husband, Ray "Lolo," Evelyn was "the best person you could ever find."

The daughter of Manuel and Esperanza Abrogar, Evelyn was the youngest of nine children. Evelyn is reunited with her siblings, Milagros, Rem, Esperanza, Zeus and Romulo that have gone before her. Evelyn attended medical school at Far Eastern University in Manila where she met her husband, Raynaldo.

Evelyn devoted her life to raising her children and caring for her family and friends. Evelyn and Ray lived in Milwaukee until 1995. Evelyn was an avid Milwaukee Bucks' fan. She loved tennis and became a very accomplished player. Evelyn loved traveling. She and Raynaldo visited dozens of countries on several continents. Since moving to Las Vegas in 1996, Evelyn and Ray enjoyed all that Vegas had to offer, fine dining, shows and of course, the slots. They joined a bowling league and at the time of her death Evelyn had a 185 average. Most of all, Evelyn enjoyed spending time with her husband, children and grandchildren. Some of the most memorable times were spent at home, singing karaoke and just being together.

BADGER, MARION  
MARION BADGER Marion "Giz" Helen Badger (nee Mommer), beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend to so many, of Las Vegas, departed this chapter of her life Sunday, Aug. 2, 2015, at 8 p.m. to continue life's longer story. Marion was born Nov. 9, 1929, at 8 p.m., in Wessington, S.D. She was the second daughter of Earl and Helen Mommer. Marion graduated from Redfield High School and soon after, married Delbert "Bud" Badger, Nov. 14, 1948. Marion made homes for her family in South Dakota, Wyoming, Nevada, and Washington. Giz held many jobs in her career, from movie theater usher in her youth to helping run the grocery store in Osage, Wyo. She was most proud of her time spent helping kids as a health aide with the Clark County School District. Marion and her husband traveled all over the U.S. in their motor homes with friends and family and enjoyed opportunities to perform random acts of kindness where ever their travels took them. They enjoyed days of sailing their boats, Gizmo and Gizmo II, on Lake Mead, salmon fishing in Washington or sharing a glass of wine on a beach somewhere at sunset (where Giz would always make the "sizzle" sound of hot sun meeting the water). Marion enjoyed time caring for her grandchildren, as well as her great-grandchildren. She was a great listener and always had an ear for those that wanted or needed to share. New chapters in her story will be written as she reunites with those that preceded her in death. Marion was always quick to smile and laugh and always slow to anger. She was a main link in a circle of love and a supporter of the random acts of kindness movement. She was a giver of much and, to a fault, a taker of little. The hole she leaves in so many hearts hopefully will be filled with memories of "Giz," an Earth Angel. She was preceded in death by her husband, Bud; her mother, Helen; father, Earl; sisters, Shirley, Edna, Evelyn and Doris; a brother, Jerry; a son, Marty; and a daughter, Mickey. She is survived by her daughter, Tammy (Eric) of Glendale, Calif.; a son, Terry (Lynda) of Henderson; many nieces and nephews; five grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild, all of which she loved listening to and caring for. Celebration of life was held Tuesday, Aug. 18, at Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 1900 Veterans Memorial Drive, Boulder City. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Nathan Adelson Hospice, 4141 Swenson St., Las Vegas, NV 89119.

COLLINS, DANN  
In Loving Memory of Dann Collins Oct. 16, 1963~Aug. 24, 2011 If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane I would walk right up to Heaven and bring you back again. No farewell words were spoken No time to say "goodbye" You were gone before I knew it, and only God knows why. My heart still aches with sadness, and secret tears still flow. What it meant to love you No one can ever know. But now I know you want me to mourn for you no more; To remember all the happy times life still has much in store. Since you'll never be forgotten, I pledge to you today- A hollowed place within my heart is where you'll always stay. ~ I love you, Deb
