Aging gracefully is a choice that takes courage and the ability to embrace change, advises award-winning actress Linda Evans who is known for playing Krystle Carrington in the 1980s drama “Dynasty.” Evans, who has lived in Rainier, near Olympia, for 30 years, is keynote speaker for the annual two-day Boomers and Beyond: Aging Successfully Conference on Friday and Saturday at the Spokane Convention Center. The conference, which includes presentations and resources for the elderly and their families, is a fundraiser for the Senior Assistance Fund of Eastern Washington that awards grants to nonprofits that provide services to low income seniors. “Doing something out of the box is very stimulating,” said Evans, 72, in a recent telephone interview. Evans, who also played Audra Barkley in the television show “The Big Valley” in the 1960s, is passionate about traveling the country encouraging people, especially aging women, to “jump in” and live their dreams and not let fear rule/Erica Curless, SR.
