I called Bingo for Regent Park for several years before COVID, and Evelyn always helped display the prizes so neatly. She did this after helping cut and arranging the table flowers. She was such an interesting woman to get to know! I’m real sorry she won’t be there when the time comes to return. I loved her spirit!

Evelyn was a good friend to my mother, Elaine Lambert. They sat at the same table and ate their meals together. We got to know your mother pretty well and enjoyed visiting with her. We are sorry for your loss and she will be dearly missed.
