I was a CNA at Oak Terrace when Ev lived there, and she was always such a joy to be around. I loved going in to talk to her about anything! I grew very attached to Evelyn, and I am heartbroken to see her gone. We all love you Ev! I'm praying for your family, especially Carol who I grew very close to as well.

I grew up around Ev and Howard since they were such good friends with my parents. There were about 5 or 6 couples that were known as “The Gang”.
Howard gave me my first haircut in their kitchen when they lived on Belle Avenue.
Very time I saw Ev she wanted to give me a kiss.
For years they told me about one winter we went to visit them and I told her “it’s to cold for kissing”!
She brought that up for years.😊
Lots of good memories.
