Evelyn was born during the Great Depression and rose from that hard, early life to flourish in the life she shared with her family and many friends. She was fiercely protective of her family but showed grace, warmth and humor to all. She never missed an important event involving her sons or an opportunity to gather with the people whom she loved. She was privileged to be married to two great men during her lifetime, and she honored, loved and cherished them both. She enjoyed painting, traveling to visit family and friends, watching hummingbirds and fishing. Evelyn was a member of the Church of Christ and had a deep, abiding faith in Christ.

Evelyn was always such a sweet lady, always kind to ask about us, Zach and of course, about Frances. I know you find comfort in the knowledge that she rests safely in God's arms. We love you all so much!
