Aunt Evy always made some sort of delicious fruit pie when we came to visit. I have so many fond memories of her like the time we bunked together in the cottage at Cap Cod and when she came to visit and we went to Royal Gorge and Pikes Peak. She was always so loving and caring. I can't believe she is gone!! I love you Aunt Evy. You will be greatly missed!!!:heart:I'm so sorry for your loss Uncle Fred, Randy, Brian and Chad.

She was fair and understanding with all the children. She had energy beyond her years! Evie was always ready for a big hug when I'd see her in the hallways and she always had that big smile along with her super personality!God Bless her and the family she has left behind.She will be missed!Connie Bradt

Our sincere condolences to you all. This is such a shock for all, may Evie rest in peace, knowing she was loved.
