Memories Timeline


  1. Since I am family this may not count but I remember Evelyn as an exceptionally sweet person. At her wedding to Pat she looked like a princess and the reception at Grandma's house seemed very fancy to me. Evelyn will certainly be missed by the family but now all of Grandma's children and their spouses are together with her. I suppose they all have Sunday dinner together, with Grandma saying that she just didn't get enough seasoning in the roast.
