I had the pleasure of working with Evie at the American Red Cross - Outagamie Chapter in Appleton. It was only a short time, but she left a lasting impression. She was always great to talk with and had much to share. Evie was a character and did so much for so many. She will be missed. My heart-felt sympathies to Evie's family, friends and community partners. She may be gone but her legacy and the work she did will continue.

Take comfort in knowing that she is no longer suffering and that she touched many people’s lives and hearts. I wish I could be there with you sharing in your sorrow. Thinking of you now and always.
