Evalyn WOLFE Obituary
WOLFE, Evalyn Pollock "Evie" Evalyn (Evie) Pollock Wolfe, age 97, passed away peacefully on September 7, 2017. She would have celebrated her 98th birthday in three weeks. Evie was born on October 1, 1919, in Monroe, Georgia to Morris Pollock and Esther Ginsburg Pollock. Evie grew up in Monroe and Atlanta, and graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Georgia Henry Grady School of Journalism in 1940. Following college, she worked as a freelance copywriter. Her gift for writing was celebrated throughout her lifetime. In 1942, Evie married Atlanta native Nathan Wolfe, Jr. They were happily married for fifty-six years, until Nathan's death in 1998.
Evie was a devoted wife and mother of three. After her children were grown, she returned to Georgia State University to complete a Masters Degree in History. In her fifties, Evie taught classes at Clark College, founded a successful travel tour company, and began a thirty year association with numerous civic and community organizations. She served as President of the Margaret Mitchell Neighborhood Association, tutored children at Margaret Mitchell Elementary School, assisted those seeking employment at the Midtown Assistance Center (MAC), cooked meals for the Zaban Couples Center, and volunteered for many projects sponsored by the Temple of Atlanta. After watching her family lose their business during the Great Depression, Evie learned to respect hard work and the need to always lend a helping hand.
Evie was modest about her many volunteer contributions, but she took her work seriously. Besides her husband, Evie was recently predeceased by her loving older brother, Robert (Bob) Pollock of Palm Springs, California. He and his wife created the Dynasty tv series. Evie is survived by her three children, Leslie Granson Gottlieb (Joel) of Atlanta, Richard Wolfe (Debbie) of Silver Springs, MD, and Julie Wolfe Moser of Atlanta and Sarasota, FL, five grandchildren, and four great grandchildren. She loved them all dearly. The family extends sincere appreciation to longtime caregivers and companions Elaine Slade and Rashae Banks. In her final months, Hospice Atlanta's residential community was her loving home. In lieu of flowers, contribution to Hospice Atlanta would be appreciated. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
