I am so sorry to hear that Evelyn passed. I am an RN who worked closely with her at Salem Hospital in the Ambulatory Surgery Area in the 90s. She was such a delight. I so enjoyed the stories she told of her life and family. I have had many loving memories of her over the years. My prayers are with you.

Dear Jane, Tami and family,

I was so sorry to read of Evelyn's passing in this morning's paper. She was truly a wonderful lady whom I enjoyed knowing, from our days at C.H.S., as well as talking to her often at the hospital, and catching up on you and your families, until she retired and then moved from the area. You were blessed to have her with you for many years. My sympathy to all of you. The world has lost another special person. May you find comfort in many pleasant memories. My sympathy and love to you all. Sincerely, Karen Orr Buchmann

Evelyn and Eldon were 2 of my favorite people and church members during my pastoral ministry at Grace Church. I am sure heaven has a big table for large puzzles.
