She attended grade school in rural Brown County and then high school in Ainsworth. While in high school, at the urging of her mother and older brother Jim, she took Normal Training so she would be able to teach school after her graduation.

Some of the schools included Highland Grove District 7, the Meadville School, and Moon Lake School District 14. While teaching, during the summers, Evelyn attended college to work on her teaching degree. She attended both Chadron State College and University of Nebraska-Lincoln. On April 2, 1955 Evelyn was united in marriage to Harold Hill. She went to live with him on Moon Lake Ranch south of Johnstown, Nebraska. After two years of teaching at the Moon Lake School, she quit teaching to start and raise their family. To this union four children were born; Gayleen, Kenny, Kay and Pam. She worked with her husband and children to operate the family ranch and farm until the death of her husband in 2010. Her later years were spent at care centers in Stuart, Ainsworth, and Atkinson. Evelyn was preceded in death by her husband Harold and her son Kenneth "Kenny"; her parents Clarence and Martha Allen; sisters Isabelle Jacobitz, Dorothy Jones, and Darlene Oakes; and brothers James "Jim" Allen, Marvin "Jack" Allen, Elmer Allen, Lester Allen, and Wayne Allen.
