She watched my brother, sister, and me for several years while we lived next door to her. To us she became known as Grandma Evelyn. My mother and her became very good friends too. I have so many good memories of her that it is hard to pick just one. She will always be in my heart.

My deepest sympathies to your entire family. I remember her always having a welcoming smile and saw how much she cared for her family. In return, I saw how her family cared for her. Such a wonderful legacy she has left here on Earth. She is still with each and every person she has touched along her path. Prayers for strength, comfort and healing hearts to all who love her. Hugs to you all.

Granny took care of me for a long time, and was one of the kindest people I’ve ever met. She sparked a lifelong love of music in me, and made many memories with me that I hold dear. I am truly sad that she’s gone, but I know that she is no longer in pain. Granny made an impact on every life that she touched and she will be dearly remembered by all of us.

Man oh man. I remember the excitement I’d get everyday as a kid pulling up to the Driveway with the spiral bushes and a red mustang.
I remember seeing the orange vhs Rugrats Movie all the time. All the fun days and memories spent at Blue Ridge.
Granny was the best💕

What a beautiful angel heaven has received.
Thank you Granny for touching my heart and my life. My prayers going up for the beautiful family she has made.

Granny took care of our son for 6 years. She was like a Grand Mother to my son and a very dear friend to my husband and I. We stayed friends through the years. Granny always talked about her family and how much she loved them. I will miss her stories, her kind eyes and beautiful smile. Granny will always be in our memories. We loved her and will miss her. I’m praying for the family and her friends.
