It’s been almost 3 weeks since my mom passed and my heart still aches so much. My mom was always a phone call away or a short drive when I needed advice and she always talked with an open heart and a tough soul. Her faith was strong and her love for her children and families was over flowing. She is now pain free and her mind is whole and I’m sure enjoying the company of her mom and dad and family and friends . I will always always miss her but because of my faith I know I will see her again someday. Watch over us mama and keep us in line. We were so blessed to be a part of you. I love you more than words can say ❤️

Beverly Bauer, my sister, and Evelyn were good friends and neighbors. I shared time occasionally with the two of them and it was delightful. I am sorry for your families loss.

I have always remembered the first time I met Aunt Evelyn and lil Judy..Mom said this is your new Aunt and Cousin...They were so sweet..and I will remember it always..I'll miss Aunt Evelyn, she was so sweet , had such wonderful Faith and was so darn cute! What a smile! Even though I haven't seen her since our move to San Diego, I was so happy she was on fb and we would chat. She would send me such inspirational messages and such lovely photos..most of which I've never seen before! Thank you Uncle Frank for bringing this wonderful lady into our family...and growing our family with such wonderful children... I will always love her and the memories are wonderful. Love, to everyone, Uncle Frank, Chrissy, David, Judy and Frank.. I am glad she is with her Lord and pain free but we will all miss her terribly....Love, and hugs..Diana and Rudy Mottis

Your smile lit up every room you were in. You were the best Grandma in the world. Your jokes were always knee slappers lol. Aidan got the best gift in the world having you as a Great Grandma. The memories he gets to have are beyond amazing. I love you more than you know. You will never be forgotten. Xoxo

To the Mottis Family,

Evelyn was a funny, loving, kind and good woman. That's a treasure in its self. My memories the best are coming over to take care of Frank and her watching her movies, or telling me about what's going on in the area. My favorite was"Come on Frank she doesn't have all day" Lets go.....He would laugh and mad her more mad... She shared great stories of her life with all of you and Frank. Life is a funny journey. I know she had angels around her to bring her home.
It was a pleasure to get to know Evelyn.
David I know you'll miss your movie buddy. Take care of Frank and mainly yourself too.
Love to all of you

Mom I will miss watching old movies with you form Charlie Chan, The Falcon, and Sherlock Holmes. We also watched a lot of the Hallmark movies you loved, and to the new movies you liked. Hoping that when I watch them, you will stop by and watch them with me mom, because not many people like to watch old and new like me and you did together. Love you mom and miss you always and forever.
