With warm memories of Evelyn. My sincerest condolences on her passing. I am forever grateful for knowing and working with her in the gym and fitness classes I taught at Woodbridge/Aviv. She always had a huge smile and her enthusiasm for her fitness and health made me feel not only humbled but so fortunate to have helped her stay fit. She taught me so much more than I taught her in the years I knew her and my life is richer because of her. I am so very grateful to know such an amazing woman who I had come to call my friend. I will miss her but so fortunate to have had her in my life.
