John, may you have comfort in the memories you shared with Evelyn for so many years. I met her through Liz when my daughter joined Job´s Daughters. Evelyn was gracious and welcoming to both of us. There are wonderful memories of activities and times spent together. My condolences to you, Liz and Matt.

Evelyn was a good friend, especially after high school. We had delightful times with friends from Rowland Hall. An accomplished woman in many areas, she is very missed.

I met Evelyn when she was director of personnel at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Utah many years ago. I was so impressed with her professionalism and the classy way she dressed. She was such a kind, pleasant, caring lady. I have often thought of her when I remembered my early years at BC/BS. May God bless her family and keep them in His arms at this time.
