MAPLE VALLEY, Wash. -- The community came together to surprise a Maple Valley woman battling stage 4 lung cancer.
Evonne is a retired school bus driver of 29 years at the Tahoma School District. She had no idea that dozens of people were waiting Thursday morning in a Maple Valley parking lot to surprise her with a two-hour party.
People handed her carnations, her favorite flower, one at a time as she arrived.
The Tahoma High School Band, the Sea Gals, Blitz and the Beast Bus were all on hand to celebrate Evonne.
Evonne is a lifelong Seahawks fan and was also surprised with tickets to this weekend's Seahawks game.
Her daughter even flew into town to add to the surpirse.
