My condolences to the Family of Evelyn. I worked at the Credit Bureau with both Evelyn and Betty until they both retired. It was a pleasure to have worked with both. I feel honored that Evelyn attended my retirement dinner in December 2011.

Evelyn frequented the Metro grocery store where I work and we got to know each other through our frequent chats . I have always been impressed with her fierce independence and sharp wit ..we had many laughs together and when she stopped coming in I was worried and often wondered how she was so it was a comfort to me to see her obituary in the paper. I could put my mind at ease knowing Evelyn was at peace after a long well lived and well loved life . Evelyn was always a pleasure to talk to , always looking lovely and always good for a laugh or two. We enjoyed each other’s company. My sympathy to her family , may they take comfort in their happy memories. Sincerely marilyn meagher
