Evelyn spent the 50’s and 60’s at the YankeeDrover Inn in Newtown where she was a waitress. She later retired from GE Corporate, where she worked in corporate dining.
Evelyn will truly be missed by all those that loved her. Quite frankly, to know her was to love her. She had a glowing personality and was an eternal optimist. She was the definition of grace and selflessness. A memorial service will be held at 1:00PM on November 13, 2021 at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Eustis FL. Interment will be in the Spring at Union Cemetery in Easton, CT.
