Hinker, Betty "Boo" Evans Powers On October 5th, 2016 at age 84. Preceded in death by her parents, William and Mayme Evans and her brother Dick Evans. Survived by her devoted husband, Brad Hinker, sisters Rosemarie (Harry) Harper and Jean Marshall, children Joe Powers, Michele (Jim) Hart, Kelly (David) Golding, Michael (Lisa) Powers; stepchildren David (Carla) Hinker, Sue (Brad) Cell, Kathy (Gary) Grauer, many loving grandchildren and one great-grand child. Boo had many close relationships including her devotion to her WWW women's spirituality group and her kitty/lchiban Koibito, (a Japanese Bobtail). Betty was a graduate of Notre Dame Academy in Mitchell, South Dakota. She held two bachelor degrees; one in education from the College of St Catherine in St Paul, MN and another in nursing from St Xavier's University in Chicago, IL. Betty loved caring for others as an RN and especially enjoyed working in the area of labor and delivery. She was passionate about animals. She rode horses and gave riding lessons in her youth. Boo started a dog grooming business and also trained and participated in competitive dog shows for many years. She had Dobermans that she raised for several years in Chicago for which she won awards at dog shows. Brad and Boo found a new life together for which they were grateful every day. They enjoyed traveling together, making new friends, having fun and growing spiritually. The gratitude for their life together found expression in a prayer they wrote each year on their annual trip to the Black Hills. "We knew how blessed we were" they said. We enjoyed our home in Eagan but traveled frequently within the US and Europe where we found many friends. Life together was a joy. Celebration of Life will be held Friday, May 5 at St Joan of Arc Catholic Community, 4537 Third Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN Visitation 10am, Mass 11am, in the church. Lunch follows. Memorials in lieu of flowers to the Alzheimer's Society of Minnesota or St Joan of Arc Church are suggested
