During high school, Evelyn took normal training and went on to teach school in a one room school house for two and a half years.

Evelyn moved to Des Moines where she worked in the hospital lab department and for an insurance company in Des Moines. She returned to Eagle Grove where she was employed as a clerk in the grocery store.

On March 21, 1946 Evelyn was united in marriage to Lyle W. Schipull in Eagle Grove. Lyle had just returned from serving in the United State Army prior to their marriage. They were blessed with five children.
