    Evelyn lived at Holt Heritage Village where my mother lives. Evelyn brought a lot of joy. She is a great lady. Mom and I would try to get by the Holt Friendly Home to see her. Mom is 91 and it was getting harder to get by and see Evelyn. We have always missed her. Our deepest sympathy to her daughters and Charlie.
