Evelyn was a friend. We had a place in Beacon Point for many years and I met her up there. She was the HOA treasurer for a some time up there and I was asked to assist in auditing her work a couple of times. She was so detailed in her work there was never anything to be concerned about. But more than that, she was a friend. Because of her attention to detail, I hired her to work in my law firm. She provided desperately needed organization. But not just that, she was an incredibly ethical, honorable and kind person and an amazingly hard worker. She was very comforting to me through my husband's illness and death. Indeed, she made my husband a quilt when he was sick and I still have it and use it every night during our long cold spell up here in Olympia. Today, I am just learning for the first time that she died. I am so sorry to hear this and want to express my deepest sorrow to her family. She will be missed.
