  1. Evelyn was a good friend and we shared many good times together on the lanes. Rest in peace, dear friend, until we meet again.

  2. Jean & Jim,

    Karen and I send our deepest condolences to you on the loss of your mother. Evie was always a great Aunt and so helpful to us when we visited Round Lake. We are glad that she had a long and happy life. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to attend the services because of the short time frame. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  3. We are sorry to hear that Evelyn passed. We have many fond memories of her. She and Marietta were like second mothers to Paul with Carolyn as his older sister when he was very young. We join the large, loving family in remembering her with love. May God bless you all.

  4. I learned at bowling today that Evelyn passed. Sorry for her families loss. Evelyn had a wicked backup ball that to this day amazes me. She also made the best lemon bars for our banquets.
    Rest in peace dear Eleven until me meet again.
