Evie blessed my life with her grace and faith-filled presence.  Every person was important to her, especially family and friends.  To share a laugh, to see her smile, to enjoy a conversation with Evie ~ I will miss these moments!

I am so sorry for your loss.  Evie was a wonderful lady that I was blessed to know at Madonna Towers.  She will be missed.

God has taken such a lovely person home! I met Evelyn through her sister, Rosanna, who worked down the hall from me, and at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church many years ago. We had kept in touch over the years. And then, imagine my surprise, when my mother moved in next door to Evelyn at Madonna Towers 9 12 years ago! Such a sweetheart. I will miss her cute smile. Love, hugs & prayers. 

What a privilege to know such an amazing woman with such a beautiful soul! May she rest in peace! 

Rest in Peace Evelyn, you will be dearly missed by many. Your smile and hug was always so welcomed when I came to visit mom at Madonna towers. Blessings to the family.

Not sure how many are fortunate enough to know and love their Great-Great aunts. My boys were lucky to know ours.


Evie, I pray you are surrounded by all those that went before you. Thank you for the many memories growing up, the loving example of family and faith. Rest in Peace 


Anthony, Liz, Tyson and Tatum
