Evelyn enjoyed crocheting and gifting Afghans in the tradition of her grandmothers. Her baked goods were famous, and she shared them generously with coworkers and friends. She was known for her friendly smile, and was always ready to lend a helping hand with yard sales, cleaning, or childcare. Evelyn wrote clever and inspiring poetry and had the distinct ability to put the beauty of nature into words, and she had a lovely singing voice.
