Evelyn will be remembered for her kindness, generosity and her propensity to put others before herself. She loved spending time in the kitchen creating delicious meals for her family and friends. She enjoyed gardening and her home was always a welcome place for people to visit, including the numerous children whom she cared for over the years. Evelyn was a hard worker all through her life and had a determined, quick-witted personality. She enjoyed playing bingo, Yahtzee, card games and doing the weekly Lexicon. Later in life she enjoyed watching game shows particularly Family Feud and Wheel of Fortune.
