EVANS, NANCY JUNE ROBINSON Nancy June Robinson Evans, 83, a resident of Albuquerque since 1958, died November 19, 2014. She is survived by her two sons, Scot and Will Evans, five grandchildren, and two cousins, Ann TipTaft Robinson of Rutland, England and Sarah Cooper of Whitianga, New Zealand. She was preceded in death by her husband, Dr. William Oren Evans of Marina del Ray, CA. Nancy Evans was born in Hollywood, CA on June 10, 1931, and spent her childhood in the Pacific Palisades, CA, where she grew up as a child actress who won her first drama championship at age 8. Between 1943 and 1945, she played in the feature films Jane Eyre, The Sullivans, Our First Line of Defense, We Too Receive, The Man Who Walked Alone, Captain Eddie, and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. In 1943, at age 12, she auditioned for the lead role in "National Velvet," wearing high-heeled riding boots so she would be tall enough to qualify. During the next six years, she appeared in live theater productions in the Pasadena Playhouse and other venues. In 1951, she was chosen as a Princess in the Tournament of Roses. She then moved to Stratford, England for two years where she studied acting and Shakespeare. In 1956, Nancy married Bill Evans and they lived in Edinburgh, Scotland before returning to the U.S. to settle in Albuquerque. She worked as a librarian in the Albuquerque Public School System from 1977-93 and later as an executive assistant in the Philosophy Department at the University of New Mexico. A longtime fan and supporter of KHFM, the local NPR station, and a lover of nature, Nancy took great pride in her garden, which she called "an English garden in the desert." Should family and friends desire, memorial contributions may be made in Nancy's name to their favorite charity that supports nature or the arts.

HEBNER, ETHAN PHILLIP Ethan Phillip Hebner ("Bubba Kat"), 20 of Albuquerque, died on Wednesday, November 19, 2014 from injuries sustained in a car accident. Ethan was born on July 5, 1994 in Albuquerque to Greg and Tammy Hebner where he attended Dennis Chavez Elementary, Madison Middle School and La Cueva High School. Ethan was very involved in Boy Scouts and this was a major part of his, and his family's lives. Ethan earned his Arrow of Light and was an Eagle Scout, joining his father and brothers as Eagles. He backpacked through Philmont Scout Ranch and stood on the top of the Tooth of Time. He was an Assistant Scoutmaster and was currently serving as an Eagle Scout advisor for Troop 220, helping the next generation of Scouts become Eagles. Ethan is survived by his parents, his brothers: Mitchell and Evan Hebner, all of Albuquerque, his grandparents: Marilyn Baker, Trilla, IL and Ted and Norma Hebner, Pekin, IL; his uncles and aunts: Andy and Christine Baker of Trilla, IL and Mike and Sally Hebner of Abilene, TX. He was preceded in death by his grandfather Louis Baker, Trilla, IL and his uncle Tony Joe Baker, Trilla, IL. Ethan had a radiant smile, and showed it all the time. He laughed often and included others in his humor. Ethan never met a stranger. Music was always a part of his life and he played bass in a local band. His love of life and people was only surpassed by his love of all animals, first fostered when he was a youth volunteer at Animal Humane of New Mexico and Talking Talons Youth Leadership. He especially liked reptiles, amphibians, and spiders even when they occasionally bit him. Always seeking adventure, Ethan planned to journey to the Amazon rainforest and study animals in the wild. He loved the open and quiet spaces of the Illinois countryside and looked forward to visiting every summer. Ethan had an eclectic and deep spiritual outlook that went far beyond his age, and which sustained both him and his family during our difficult times. A Celebration of Ethan's life will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, November 29, 2014 at Covenant United Methodist Church, 8510 Wyoming Blvd NE with a reception following at the church. Urn bearers are Mitchell Hebner, Evan Hebner, Jordan Orlovsky, Kevin Bielek, Drew Stahelin and Mark Westlake. Dress as you wish because Ethan wanted people to be comfortable. Ethan's family would like to thank the compassionate and caring staff at UNMH Trauma ICU. One of Ethan's final gifts was to bless the lives of many others as an organ donor. Cremation has taken place and his ashes will be returned to the Earth at the places he loved. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Animal Humane of New Mexico, Talking Talons Youth Leadership, The Rainforest Trust or any animal charity of your choice.
