Evelyn loved to sing especially with all her grandchildren. You could always find her humming and singing while tending to her plants and collection of bonsai. She had a magnificent green thumb. She was always proud of her twins and loved to brag about them.Evelyn had a special knack for making people feel so truly loved and uniquely special. She wanted to know everything about you and she loved us all a bushel and a peck. She touched our hearts and will be forever missed. May heaven have a golden spoon and an endless supply of dessert.
