Sister Evelyn was mine, Marie, Peter and Bill's loving older sister who taught us so many valuable lessons in life along with many fun games to entertain us. Those long rainy, cold snowy days in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, were filled with love from our big sister Evelyn. She was a natural teacher who challenged us to improve whether it was in arithmetic ,spelling or history and of course geography. She shared her love and knowledge with us and instilled a strong desire to win and do our best. She was always there to remove any sadness and to make us smile and laugh through our tears. I miss her and the love she had for me.

Evelyn was my older sister who always found time to make us younger ones laugh and to teach us important facts about science, animals and how to make excellent chocolate fudge. She taught me to never limit myself or to set boundaries on anything I wanted to do. I remember when she took me for my first lesson in golf. We approached the first green and I starting swinging the club like I was a lumberjack chopping down a tree. She laughed so hard the tears were rolling down her cheeks. She then proceeded to show me the correct way to hold the club , the correct way to stand, and the correct way to follow through with my swing. Well after many feeble tries, I was becoming frustrated and threw the club across the green, yelling "I quit". She walked over and retrieved the club and said to me, "you cannot quit" you are my sister and my sister Thelma does not quit" I looked into her eyes and saw the determination. After more struggling I finally managed to make the club connect with the tiny white ball and guess what, I hit a "hole in one" She was so elated and kept pounding me on my back and telling me how great I was and good enough to be a professional. My sweet Evelyn a true inspiration.

Evelyn will always be remembered for the enjoyable debates on a vast array of subjects. There are times we would agree and other times totally disagree on topics of discussions. She would be so funny at times in the discussions with her jokes. She will be missed. May her memories be passed on....
