Evelyn was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, which she took great pride in.  She was a great cook and loved sharing the results, especially her tamales, with family and friends.  They loved it, too.  Saturday’s were known for finding family and anyone stopping by to be treated to one of her meals.


Besides being with family, friends, and cooking, she loved playing numerous card games, Bingo, and of course, Ship, Captain, Crew with her sons-in-law who would overlook the extra throws of the dice!  Also, she was a member of Colona United Methodist Church as well as the Colona Lion’s Club.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; son, Robert; brothers, Stanley, Dale, and Carl; sisters, Leila and Lorraine.


The family would like to send a special thank you to the staff at Hope Creek Care Center, especially on floor 4-1, for their wonderful care and compassion.
