  1. Ann Lawter Pollard says:

    Evelyn was caring and kind. A wonderful woman and someone that I considered a role model. Funny and wise. I loved to watch the wheels turning when she got that twinkle in her eye. I knew something special was about to be said! My parents loved her very much, as well. The world is diminished because she’s gone. Much love to Carol Ann, Kenny and Karl.

  2. Clyde Lawter says:

    Evelyn has been a part of our lives for so many years. From the great “lunch sack wars” at PTHS to the years she helped us at the gallery, she was such a dear friend.

    She is missed beyond words.

    A cherished part of my life for over fifty years.
