Evelyn will live forever in our hearts and memories of all our luncheons, birthday celebrations, classes at Northwestern ( where she often fell asleep), and our numerous field trips. After my diagnosis of cancer Evelyn sent flowers several times and even after she was in "lockdown" she always called wanting to send love, and wanting to send food. Her lemon jello mold and fudge will be missed! An incredibly funny, kind, and lovely woman. Our "playgroup" (as Marla called us) will always cherish our times together! Much love to the family.

We share your shock and grief with Evelyn’s sudden passing and want you to know how much we loved Evelyn even though we did not have the blessing of more time together.

Mitch, you have our everlasting respect for your ability to do that eulogy. We’ll never know how you found the strength to do that. We will be with you in spirit as you sit shiva this week.

May Her memory forever be a blessing to all who had the good fortune to know her.

Your loving cousins,
Ed & Nadine Fidelman
