Evelyn was so much more than what is written here. Her selflessness in all she did spoke volumes of who she was inside. Every volunteer effort she lead, she did with gusto and determination, regardless of how many or how few people were there to support her efforts. Heaven truly got another angel with her arrival. God bless her family.

Ron I am so very sorry to hear of Ev's sudden passing. I have such fond memories of our school years together from grammar school up through high school and all the fun parties we had at her house. Her sense of humor was great and her heart was full of gold. She will be missed by so many who knew and loved her over the years. May you and your sons fond memories of her keep her alive in your hearts until you are reunited again in the kingdom of heaven.
