I first met Evelyn as my moms neighbor. When we would come to see my mom she was always working in her beautiful garden and helped to teach my boys how to weed and what was a weed or flower. Later I was able to reconnect with her at Ely Manor. She loved her bingo and would always say to me come on Amber your calling the wrong number's, that's not the number I need. She would get so excited when you would call the number's on her card and she got a Bingo. I loved her stories over the years and her love for the Detroit Tigers, she never missed a game. The day after her 105th birthday she was still glowing and shared with everyone the message she got from the announcer. Evelyn was such an amazing gentle soul and had so much to give and share with others. She will be greatly missed and impacted many lives.

I met this lovely lady thru my friends Mark and Di some years ago. They lived across the street from each other. I travel to Michigan twice a year from New York and visiting Evelyn (Ms. Ev) was always a blessing and something I looked forward to. She was the sweetest lady and I truly enjoyed her conversation. Her knowledge of the Detroit Tigers was matched by none. And her smile lit up a room. She was my friend and was always happy to see me. Would tell me out of all of Mark and Dian’s friends, I was her favorite. I had gotten her an I ❤️ NY coffee cup and Ev would not allow anyone to touch it. Told them her friend from New York bought that for her. She was a delight to see and a pleasure to talk to. I will miss her and even more so when I travel back to Michigan again. But I will always smile for having the privilege to have known her. May she rest in eternal peace and thank you Ms. Ev for being my friend ❤️

I cared for Evie at Ely Manor and we created a bond like no other. God truly knew we needed one another. After leaving Ely for another job opportunity, we stayed in contact and had visits. She definitely made an impact in my life and I will truly cherish the connection we made.
