So sorry to hear of Evelyn's death. I knew her for years while attending the Firrst Church of the Brethren in Carlisle. She was a special lady ...kind and caring to everyone as was her husband Ken whom she lost several years ago.
Those two have been welcomed in heaven with open arms I'm sure. My condolences to the family.

Dear Evelyn's Family,
What a wonderful lady your mother was and she loved each one of you ladies dearly and your dad so much.
We worked together at Dunham and although I never met each of you personal I felt I knew you well,she never had a bad word to say. She loved her grand children as much,and son/daughter-in-laws.
My prayers go out to all of you us you deal with this tragic loss.
Sincerely,Barbara Coons

When I volunteered at Dunham Health Clinic, I became acquainted with Evelyn and saw her occasionally when she brought her pets to a nursing home where I volunteered. What a precious lady. God bless and comfort you as you grieve your loss.
