She was a homemaker and ran an in-home daycare for 30 years. Evelyn loved animals, especially elephants. She was an avid reader, played piano in the church, enjoyed sewing clothes and costumes, and crafting with silk flower arrangements. Her family and friends will miss her sweet smile and will always remember her as a kindhearted, generous person.
