Evi fought the cancer battle graciously. She is with her beautiful daughter Shelia and her husband Jeff catching up. I worked with Evi for many years sharing many events in our lives.

So sorry for the loss of a special lady. Evi has been a great friend of our family for many years. She was always there for our mom when she was sick. I will always remember her laugh, always upbeat and fun. She was loved by our family and will be dearly missed by all.
