Evelyn became my friend and mentor 45 years ago. She was a strong and opinionated woman and I greatly respected and trusted those qualities in her. She was loving and compassionate and loyal to all. I will forever love her and deeply miss her. A friend always, Pam Anderson.
Pogo and Family you have our deepest sympathy and now she is looking down on us. Marvin$MaryAnnLarsen
