Evelyn was a gracious saint of God. She loved Jesus and loved to study the Bible. She was a faithful member of her church. We enjoyed her participation in our bible study at Dauphin Way Assisted Living. Everyone loved her. One day she got up, from our study, went to the piano, and played a hymn by memory.
