Evelyn lived throughout the United States and Germany before residing in Marengo, Illinois. Her  love for the Ohio State football team was unconditional. Evelyn was known for her  compassion, her patience, gardening, the love for her family and the love of God.  Her life was a living example of her favorite Bible verse, Ephesians 4:32- “ And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another , just as God also forgave you in Christ.”


Evelyn loved good food, socializing and shopping.  She enjoyed being with friends and family and had a wonderful smile that would light up the room.


Evelyn wanted to remind everyone to be good to each other and to take care of one another.  She would want us to remember that we are all created in God’s image.
