July 3, 2019 Cranberry Obituaries

Marien Elaine Evans, 86, of Seven Fields passed away peacefully on Sunday.

Born Sept. 2, 1932, in Silver City, N.M., she was daughter of the late Henry Neil and Ruby Belle (Pruit) Mulanax.

Marien was the loving mother of Debra Evans (Kenneth Pokrifka); dear grandma of Brian and Gwenore Pokrifka; caring aunt of Janet Kunka, Mollie Melvin and Robin Thorstenson; and the great-aunt of Caitlin Melvin.

Marien was known as someone that was interested in her community. To that end, during her retirement, she served as the president of her local homeowners’ association for many years.

Before she retired and moved to the Pittsburgh area, Marien, after being a homemaker for many years, returned to school and obtained her law degree. With that degree, she proudly served as legal counsel for the Boston School Committee for many years, as well as being legal advisory to the Leahy Clinic in Boston.

However, many people in her neighborhood remember her most for her little white dogs, who would greet everyone with great energy and who she loved dearly.

EVANS — Family and friends of Marien Elaine Evans, who died Sunday, June 30, 2019, are welcome from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Devlin Funeral Home of Cranberry, 2678 Rochester Road, Cranberry Township.
