I wrote this memory on a card for her whichwill arrive tomorrow if it has not yet. In 1087 I was a nurse in the OB dept. where Deanna birthed her first baby. It seemed to me every grandmother in that day was 40 years old...as a child my grandmother was 75 when I was born so when Evelyn came to visit my first thought was.... now this is a GRANDMOTHER!! I never forgot that image of her holding that bundle of a baby. So sorry she will miss her party but can’t help but believe she will be there in spirit.
Carry on, Evelyn! Bob
Evelyn was a special long-time friend of our family and a wonderful, caring friend to my late mother, May Downing. We got to spend a lot of time with this sweet woman through the years. I am glad that she was able to live enjoy a long life. Our condolences to all her children. Thank you for posting the local obituary. The Downing family.
I will always be with you. Your star is fixed in my sky.
Goodnight, sweet princess.
Evelyn was a wonderful friend to us Downings. She could even calm my redhaired mother! She shared an interest in geology with me and gave me a tin of assorted stones before she left for Oregon. It is sitting on my desk as I write this. We were lucky to know her, Godspeed to Heaven Evelyn!
How thankful we are to have had you as Grandma (and Great Grandma)! We will always remember your warm smile and kind heart.
