My late brother (Larry Koenig) and his family used to live across the street from Evelyn and Richard on Daleview, and I got to know both of them through him. About 29 years ago, Evelyn took care of my eldest son for 2 weeks while our nanny took some time off to be with her mother who was ill. I was so grateful that she was willing to do that, especially on short notice . Evelyn was such a dear person, and she truly loved children. And the children loved her back!
Rest in peace, Evelyn. And God's Blessings to Evelyn's family during this difficult time.

I’ll never forget the fun we all had playing card games with Richard and Evelyn at the Koenig home. Evelyn was a genuinely good person. She loved her husband and family very much. She will be missed.
