Evvy was active in local theater, including starring roles in Guys and Dolls and Once Upon A Mattress. Most recently, she was in a local production of The Vagina Monologues.
Evvy was a volunteer with, and loved working with, the Junior Board of Christiana Care and was a Braille transcriber for the Division of the Visually Handicapped. She was also a member of Congregation Beth Emeth, past president of the Sisterhood of Beth Emeth, and a member of Hadassah and the Kutz Home Auxiliary.
