Evelyn came into my life when I became preschool coordinator at our church and she came to our church and helped me set up a safer and more inviting environment for the children. That was over 20 years ago and I still to this day remember her smile and love of doing God's work. It was a pleasure and honor to meet and work with her and she will forever have a place in my heart. My prayers are with you all.

What a special gift from God Ms Evelyn was! She shared her love for Christ with so many sweet little ones. I’ve never known a more gentle lady. Wayne, Hugh and Angela, my thoughts and prayers are with you

Loved Ms Evelyn and her love for Jesus and children. Found a card not long ago that made me smile- she would always sign “Jesus loves you and so do I”. Will always be thankful for the way she loved my girls at Eastside. Praying for the family. Sandy Merrill
