Evelyn was an avid bowler in her younger years. She bowled many years in the Sigma 7 league with the "girls". She enjoyed the fun and friendships more than winning. She loved her flower gardens and could be found out piddling in them all summer long. Evelyn never met a stranger and always had a smile and a kind word. She brought sunshine with her any place she might be.
