Evelyn is survived by her loving daughters: Eva (Ron) Andrew, Marlene (Clark) Fletcher and Doreen (Barry) Schofield, sisters: Myrtle LaRocque, Josie LaRocque and Lil Ealey, 8 grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren and 1 great greatgrandchild.

Evelyn was the best mom and grandma. Spending time with her family and friends was her greatest joy. She loved to quilt and embroider. Her hands were never idle. She loved and took pride in the competition that bowling and the Senior games would provide. Evelyn loved to show off her many medals she had earned. Cards was another one of her passions and she was always ready for a game. The family will dearly miss her delicious butter tarts.
