Gentle soul, pure of heart - a tenet of the golden rule - never a harsh word spoken of others.

A fan of Princess Di, an avid seashell collector, loved crossword puzzles, arts and crafts and had a photographic memory - no phone or address book was needed - you simply asked Evelyn the name, address, and phone number – she always knew.

A loyal advocate of Krafts, Campbells, and Hunts foods - "all others are crap"

A loving sister and aunt – you will be missed.

Funeral services to be held at Salisbury National Cemetery, Salisbury, NC at a date and time to later be announced.


Lullaby, Lullaby.

The Sandman and moon

are coming out tonight.

The birds are singing,

Lullaby, Lullaby.

Your dreams will be soft

soft and sweet.

Lullaby, Lullaby.
