Evelyn worked many years as a cook at the Interstate Sale Barn. She enjoyed meeting with her girlfriends for coffee at McDonalds each morning.
Mom was famous for her speedy lawn mowing and her homemade cinnamon rolls. She had a God given talent for gardening. If she stuck a dead stick in the ground it would sprout into a bush! Mom had a sweet, simple, and caring nature. She will forever be loved and remembered.
