Our deepest sympathies for your loss as well. It is with utmost admiration that all of us got “blizzared” in and got to spend a lot more time together than expected… Our family would not change that for the world! Evelyn was a great joy to have in our home! Our prayers and love are with you.

We will never forget the fun times we had with Evelyn, Sue and Jim
in Door County WI.

Meals at the Polish Buffet

Meals at their home

Chasing the steam loco through the suburbs, followed by breakfast at the Round HOUSE Restaurant in Aurora.

This was followed by an organ concert at the Rialto theater in Joliet.

Thanks for all the laughing and good times together.

WE will keep Evelyn in our prayers. God has called her to a better place.

WE will never forget Evelyn.

We are thankful for all the laughter she had brought to our lives.
I will never forget the day I was driving and she would not put her seat belt on. I told her that the car would not move until everyone had their seat belts buckled. This worked.

We all ways looked forward to seeing her because of the joyful time she gave us.

Condolence from Raul A. Ledesma condolence on December 22nd, 2014 8:21 pm

Goodbye good friend.

Condolence from Sydney and Keith Schuler on December 23rd, 2014 8:11 am

Evelyn with the hearty laugh and the ready smile.
Evelyn with the interesting conversations.
Evelyn with the no nonsense approach to life.
Evelyn willing to don the hat, bring on the silliness and laugh.
We feel blessed to have known Evelyn.

Condolence from Jill Clouser Anderson on December 28th, 2014 1:02 pm

Sharon, Sue, Jim and Families: my thoughts are with you as you lay your Mom to rest. What a fabulous lady with a great laugh. I remember her weighing in on my Homecoming and Prom dress selections and sending me off to one of those dances saying ” No curfew tonight!” We had lots of fun on the patio together. She was everyone’s grandma! Pleased to know she lived a long fulfilling life.
