  • Evelyn was a rare precious gem! I saw her every Friday morning for the past 30 years, styled her hair and enjoyed great conversation with her! She was always happy, positive and had great humor! She will incredibly missed by me and all my coworkers!

  • I knew Evelyn and Carl from the Cherry Hill Baptist Church days. They were always doing the Lords work, They were Spiritual giants to me and I learned so much from their teaching, marriage and life. Certainly a life lived out for the Lord Jesus Christ in every way. Heaven has gained a true disciple of Christ and I can only imagine the party in heaven when she arrived. We shall meet again Evelyn in God’s eternal heaven.
