Evelyn loved to travel with friends, especially when it was some where tropical, but never turned down a road trip with her dear friend Terry!
She loved to craft and was always coming up with the most creative and beautiful pieces to give to her family and friends every chance she got. If you ever met Evelyn, you likely have one of her projects as a gift in your home.
Her love of baking was enjoyed by everyone around her. She never turned away the chance to try the latest and greatest recipe regardless of how difficult the recipe may seem.
