She loved both the sail boat and pontoon boat and enjoyed quiet times fishing from them. The cottage was always open to family and friends where good times made lifetime memories for many. Evelyn was a member of the Austintown Community Church, being honored as a 50 year member a few years ago. She loved singing in the choir with her husband and friends. She was a member of Ruth Circle, working on the Canfield Fair project and making hundreds of lap robes with "the girls" to donate to area homes. Her husband of 58 years, passed away August 5, 1999.
