Ev was one of the 12 women who were charter members of the St. Cloud Mrs. Jaycees. Her passion was playing bridge with friends and enjoying the company of family and friends. Ev was rich with friends and neighbors who were so good to her. She was a homemaker all of her life. She was a delicious cook and known for her banana bread, which she sent to her children and grandchildren when in college. Ev was a member of St. Paul's Catholic Church, the Mrs. Jaycees, the Daughters of Isabella, the Christian Women, and the Eagles Auxiliary.
