Evelyn Joan Albertson

Evelyn Joan Young Carney Albertson, 91, of Fishers, passed away on Monday, March 11, 2024 at Prairie Lakes Health Campus in Noblesville. She was born on November 19, 1932 to Harold and Gladys (Hensley) Young in Indianapolis, Indiana.

 

Evelyn loved to travel and see the beautiful nature that God had created.   Late in life, Evelyn was excited at the opportunity to travel, full time, with her brother, Merle.  At a young age, Merle was stricken with polio.   Despite the challenges of living in a motor home, let alone her brother in a wheelchair full time, Evelyn and Merle spent about five years traveling this beautiful country, including one trip to Alaska. Throughout their travels, Evelyn and Merle were very involved with the Handicapped Travel Club.  The motto of the HTC is “Fun and Fellowship”, yet they also want to encourage those who may have disabilities to Get Out And Live *G.O.A.L.”   

 

After making the difficult decision to park their motor home, they made their home in Noblesville, Indiana. Evelyn continued to care for her brother until he passed in 2019.  Alan and Andrew are so thankful to Evelyn for the loving care she provided, not just to Buddy Merle, but to the others within their community.  Evelyn was a true blessing to all she met.  Evelyn will be dearly missed, but those that remain are thankful she has ascended to a place where there is no pain or sickness, and she is now reunited with her beloved family who has passed before her.

 

She is survived by her nephews, Alan Young and Andrew Young; granddaughters, Amanda Carney Ulmer and Kellie A. Carney Sparks; great-granddaughter, Natalie Carney Haigler; great-grandsons, Lawrence Daniel Sparks and Willliam Carney Mitchum; and step-son Robert “Alby” Albertson.

 

In addition to her parents, Evelyn was preceded in death by her son, Dale Carney; brother, Merle "Bud" R. Young; and her step-daughter, Linda R. Albertson.
