  1. 40 yrs. of Friendship You were a Highlight in our lives!! We first met as next door neighbors became good friends which included fun, laughter, and sorrows all shared. Evelyn was usually “life of the Party”. She did resemble a Barbie Doll but told jokes like a pro. We shared a House Boat at Lake Shasta for a week, it was a hoot. Her turn at the helm, she was going around in the boat in circles, busy inviting strangers to join us for a Party. Evelyn also had a serious – side, true compassion and love to all. A truly great loss to all of us. Sincerely- Jim & Helen Ayers

  2. Dearest Ev, You were a “second mother” to me…from the time we lived in Summerwood Park apartments and then we moved with you to Casa Del Amo apartments, when I was in high school. You have always been there for me and I will never forget ALL the things you have done for me. I only wish that I could have recipicated all you had done for me. You were there for me when I got hurt and we had many good times with Julie who was one of my best friends. Now you are with Hal and Julie. God Bless you and I will always cherish the memories growing up and having you always around to help anyway you could. Also, you treated my wife, Celeste, from the time you met her as a “second daughter” and were always so gracious to her. For that I thank you as well. You and Hal were the best “second parents” anyone could have. I remember Julie always told me to “respect your elders”, we were 3 days apart. We will always remember your 60th birthday party…what a ball we had, you really enjoyed it as well. I am so happy I talked with you about 3 months ago and we had a wonderful talk and that talk I will keep close in my heart along with my wife. Thank you for being there and you will always be in our hearts. God Bless you and may the Lord hold you and keep you close. You are truly a saint. Love you forever, Dave and Celeste Fowler
