She was a great friend and all round terrific lady. We will miss her friendship and all the “coffee talk” around her table. Praying for her family.

I so enjoyed having Evelyn as a friend. I first met her by taking painting classes. I enjoyed that time so much and usually stayed after class and just visited with her. My prayers are with you all.
