Evelyn was a lady in all the great meaning of the word. She had strength, endurance, and a kind and generous spirit. Her smile was contagious and she always brightened my day. She will live in my memory and I know I am a better person for having know her.

Evelyn....a Great and Passionate Lady! She sure had a zest for life! Evelyn was a long time neighbor and true friend (considered part of the family) of my folks, C.O. and Juanita Gransberg. My Mom made many an entry in her journals of Evelyn's acts of kindness, homemade gifts and her many adventures traveling. Evelyn, you will be Forever in Our Hearts!
