Evelyn was one of the sweetest ladies I ever had the pleasure of knowing. I always enjoyed my visits with her over the past couple of years as she was such an inspiration...even when she felt so bad. We were not only sisters in PEO, but we were also sisters from our college sorority, ADPi. My thoughts and prayers are with her sweet family at this time.
