One Condolence for Evelyn Utting Hogenson

  • Evelyn was a wonderful aunt. She had a terrific sense of humor and was always up for a good time. She was a marvelous cook, and we will miss her tuna casserole. There will be no replacement for her distinctive laugh, which was so full of life. We treasure our years with Evelyn, Uncle Bob, Jan and Lynn at their home in Newark.
