To all of the Andretta's: We are sorry to hear of Mother Evelyn's passing away. She was a mother to many of us in the SIOR. She was the 1st SIOR women in Florida and will be remember as the pioneer who set the path for many young ladies and men in the commercial real estate industry. Thank you Evelyn, we love you.

She is one of the finest lady's in the world. They define Matriarch as the a woman who is the founder or dominant member of a community or group. She was all of that and then-some.

Elizabeth and I send our deepest sympathies and pray that this time of grief will be filled with the wonderful memories she has share will you and so many others. Thank you for sharing your mother with us. Dan Lewis, SIOR, CCIM - West Palm Beach FL

Mrs. Adretta was a fine example of the dignity of womanhood in her personal life and especially to her scout troop. I was lucky enough to be one of her scouts. I always watched her reactions to things when we would camp or go on field trips; she engendered a sense of wonder and genuine curiosity for the world. She taught us by example, and she taught us respect, tolerance, and humor.
Much sympathy to Denise and the Andretta family. Sending prayers your way.

Mrs. 'A' was one of my most powerful mentors when I was growing up, and I credit much of my personal success to her influence! May she now rest in peace in the arms of the angels! Wishing Denise and the rest of the family God's strength in their time of need. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers with much love! Rachelle
