Evlyn Syble Wiley Broumley

Evlyn Syble Wiley Broumley, 79, died peacefully Feb. 13, 20113, at home surrounded by her family.

Service is 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16, at Aledo Church of Christ with internment at the Brown Cemetery in Aledo. Visitation is 6-8 p.m. Friday at Galbraith-Pickard Funeral Home in Weatherford. Galbreaith-Pickard Funeral Chapel is in charge of arrangements.

Evlyn was born Feb. 3, 1934, to Melvin and Syble Wiley, in Fort Worth. She was raised on the Wiley Dairy in Parker County. She attended school in Aledo, Azle and graduated from Weatherford High School. She went on and attended Business College in Fort Worth.

In 1952 she married Raymond “Scotty” Broumley in Portsmouth Va., while he served in the U.S. Navy. They returned to Parker County and went into the dairy business until 1975. At that time they moved into the city of Weatherford, where Evlyn began her career with the Weatherford Library.

Evlyn had such a love for books and history she took that love and put it to work. She began as a volunteer, driving the bookmobile and doing whatever was needed. She went on to be a part time library assistant whose talents and interests were diligently used to develop the historical collection from a small group of genealogy books to a fully developed and useful collection.

She was a long-standing member of the Parker County Genealogy Society and wrote a “Kissin Kin” column for the Weatherford Democrat for more 30 years. She was also the editor of “Trails West,” a genealogy magazine. Today, the name of Evlyn Broumley is synonymous with genealogical research in Weatherford. Evlyn helped people all over the United States with their genealogy searches and she will be greatly missed. Evlyn was a member of Church of Christ.

Survivors include the love of her life, her husband of 60 years, Raymond “Scotty” Broumley; sons, Mark Broumley and wife, Nancy, Wesley Broumley and wife, Beverly; daughter, Karen Broumley Pacheco; grandchildren, Jennifer Kristufek and husband, Christopher, Catherine Lukasik and husband, Douglas, Scotty Pacheco, Courtney Pacheco, Eric Pacheco, Jake Broumley and wife, Elizabeth, and Jentri Broumley; great-grandchildren, David Broumley, Rylie Hudson, Beau and Mallory Anders; brother, Melvin Wiley and his wife, Patsy; sister-in-law, Sue Wiley; brother- and sister-in-law, Jim and Virgene Broumley; a multitude of cousins, nieces and nephews; and a host of friends.

Evlyn was preceded in death by her parents; and a brother, Hubert Wiley.
