FROM STAFF REPORTS

On Oct. 31, one century ago, Frances Octavia Smith was born in Uvalde, Texas.

And for the next 88 years, she lived a most unlikely life, marked by fame, fortune, personal tragedy — and through it all — enduring faith in God.

So to mark the centennial of the birth of Apple Valley’s First Lady, Dale Evans, her admirers from near and far will gather in town for a series of events this weekend to remember Roy Rogers’ lifelong partner and the “Queen of the West.”

Singer Patty Parker was awestruck when she met her childhood idol, Dale Evans, during an Arizona musical festival in 1995.

“I had a chance to meet with Dale backstage at the Festival of the West, just before I sang my song to her,” Parker said. “Dale sent me a hand written note telling me how much she and Roy loved the song.”

Parker’s tribute song, “She Rode a Horse Called Buttermilk,” will be used by the Dale Evans Centennial committee this weekend to celebrate what would have been Evans’ 100th birthday Oct. 31.
