Evlyn Syble Wiley Broumley, 79, died February 13, 2013 at home, surrounded by her family.
Evlyn was born February 3, 1934, to Melvin and Syble Wiley in Fort Worth. She was raised on the Wiley Dairy in Parker County. She attended school in Aledo, Azle and graduated from Weatherford High School. She then went on and attended Business College in Fort Worth.
In 1952 she married Raymond “Scotty” Broumley, in Portsmouth Va., while he served in the US Navy. They returned to Parker County and went into the dairy business until 1975. At that time they moved into the city of Weatherford where Evlyn began her career with the Weatherford Library. Evlyn had such a love for books and history she took that love and put it to work. She began as a volunteer, driving the book-mobile and doing whatever was needed. She went on to be a part time library assistant whose talents and interests were diligently used to develop the historical collection from a small group of genealogy books to a fully developed and useful collection. She was a longstanding member of Parker County Genealogy Society and wrote “Kissin Kin” column for Weatherford Democrat for more than 30 years, and was editor of “Trails West” genealogy magazine.
