AUBURN - Betty Cameron Evans, 91, of Auburn, died peacefully on Saturday April 6, 2019 at Clover Manor.

Betty was born in Cambridge, Mass. on Sept. 17, 1927, the daughter of the late Henry H. Cameron and Katherine E. Cameron. She attended Medford, Mass. public schools, graduating from Medford High School in 1945. Betty continued her education at the Kathleen Dell Business School in Boston and trained as a medical secretary. Her whole working career was spent managing the offices of Dr. John Vernaglia and Dr. Paul Vernaglia, in Medford.

In 1948, Betty married her high school sweetheart, Gilman G. Evans. They lovingly shared life's journey for 57 years. Gil died on Sept. 1, 2005. The Congregational Church of West Medford was an important part of their life. Gil sang in the choir and served on several church committees. Betty served on committees, was active in the church's Women's League and the annual church fair. For years they prepared and hosted the church's St. Patrick's Day boiled dinner. In her later years, Betty was an active member of the Congregational Church, UCC of Winthrop.

Betty had the gift of easily making friends and holding them close. She was a talented rug hooker and was active in rug hooking groups in New Hampshire and Maine.
