Ev was born June 21, 1920 to Stanley and Mary Olive Singmaster. She graduated from East High School in 1938. During WW II, Ev worked as a dental assistant for Dr. Pinneo. She married Embert M. (Swede) Carlson on January 30, 1946. Ev and Swede raised their two children in the Beaverdale area, where Swede sold real estate. For years, she enjoyed selling women's fashions at several local department stores. After retirement, Ev and Swede moved to Springfield, Missouri to be closer to their granddaughter, Mindy. After Swede's death in 2000, Ev moved to Windsor Heights, IA where she volunteered in the Governor's office and enjoyed her time with friends from her exercise group. In her early 80's, Ev worked as a hostess at Perkin's Restaurant where she enjoyed socializing with customers. Ev and Swede enjoyed 54 years of marriage, and she proudly lived independently until age 90.

Ev is survived by her daughter, Shelley Carlson and her daughter Mindy Miller both of Springfield, MO, and her son Kent Carlson (Sondra) of Earlham, IA. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Swede, her brother Wilbur Singmaster, sister Marguerite Singmaster, and her niece Jean Hardesty.
