Please accept my sincere sympathy at the loss of your mother, grandmother. She and I walked at the mall for years before we went to work . She was a lovely lady, with lots of class. Her first husband was my husband's boss at Farm Bureau so we shared several Christmas parties together also. Remember the good times and you will see her again in Heaven. Love Karen

It is hard to know where to start, 1959, my interview at Industrial Trust. From that day one, Evie was a part of our lives. I had a fried bologna sandwich in her kitchen, we were in Muncie when Bud passed, we were in Muncie when Todd passed, we were in business for several years and it was always Evie we called when there was banking to do. She was a neighbor of our best friend, the Gruppe's and was there for Dolores when Bill passed. Through the years there was always a thread. I can still see that striking redhead (with the tall hair) sitting at her desk in the old bank building. WOW, what a dish. We have been away from Muncie for 20 years and it is always hard to learn that there is one less friend to come home to. Please accept our sincere condolences for your loss. She was quite a dame.

John, so sorry to hear the passing of Evie. I have such great memories of how warm and friendly she always was toward Jerry and I. I know mom and dad thought a lot of her too. Think of you often, and now I see you have grandchildren, how cool is that! Please accept my sincere sympathy for you loss. Hugs, Karon
