Evergreen’s matriarch, Louise Stransky Hendryx, dies at 103

By Burdette “Bud” Weare, For the Courier

The five-generation Stransky family has lost the last of its original Evergreen settlers, the town has lost a precious part of its pioneer history, and humankind has lost a lovely soul.

Following a brief illness, Louise Stransky Hendryx died June 30, 2015, at her creekside home in lower Evergreen. She was 103.
