I was saddened to come across your obituary. You were an amazing woman that I was lucky to have crossed paths with in life. You and I even shared the same birthday! I will always remember the memories that we shared. Your smile was contagious. My thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends during this difficult time.

We have many fond memories of Ev and Dick. Living on the same street for several years we shared some wonderful times. Christmas parties, Turner membership, campfires and watching our children grow up.
One humorous memory was when poor Evelyn slid down the entire length of our icy driveway following a Christmas celebration. Fortunately nobody was hurt and it was the source of much teasing at gatherings that followed.
We kind of lost touch when they moved away but we never forgot them. They were a great couple and wonderful friends. RIP Ev, and say hello to Dick for the Vetos when you two meet up in heaven.
