The family of Evelyn M. Hertle has received the following condolences.
We were friends since high school. We lived in Austin when we were first married and visited back and forth. Many years later they ended up at same Retirement Home as our sister and brother-in-law so were able to connect again. Evelyn was such a good friend in high school and we had many good times together. Our deepest sympathy to all of her family.
Thank you for sharing Evie with us at Madonna Meadows/Madonna Living Community. She was in the same area as my mom still is and all her friends miss her as do I. Evie was such a sweet, humble lady.
