Gene and I were neighbors of Evelyn in Lake Forest, CA and were close friends for over 20 years. We met after her husband passed. Evelyn made a point of walking and visiting with all her neighbors and we all enjoyed knowing her. Gene and I often went out to eat with her and she loved going back to an English restuarant and sitting at the special table where she and her husband used to sit. We missed her after her move to Lake San Marcos and often met her half way for lunch. We have special memories of cruise trips together and will miss her greatly. I last spoke with her about four weeks ago and chatted for an hour. She was a special lady and a talented artist. May she RIP. Barbara

Evelyn was my Aunt Ev...she was my Mom's sister. She had worked at the bank in our small town when she young out of high school. Well, after I graduated from high school I went to work at that bank and stayed until I retired. I remember when my Mom would want my attention as I was growing up and then being an adult .... the first name she would say was...Ev ... sometimes Carolyn (another sister) then finally Barb!! I must have looked like them to her....and that was ok. I wasn't around my Aunt Ev alot since she lived on the west coast, but when I was I loved it. RIP Aunt Ev...

Mr. Tewell, I have a picture of that painting. I, too, commented on it in '07. I told her it was a young woman "walking away" and not looking back. Yes, she had an umbrella, but it was not shielding her from anything. It showed that the young woman was confident where she was going. If you don't have the actual painting (I would not be a bit surprised if she gave it to you!), contact me via FB and I will send you the photo. I am her niece. She and my mother were sisters. I will miss this dear lady, and will cherish the times I was able to visit her in CA. She was truly a very gifted and unique person. As another niece said, "Some glad morning when this life is o'er...."

Evelyn was my Aunt, Aunt Ev was such a gracious person. She was are artist and worked in Watercolor and Oils. She encourage me to start working in Watercolor. Do to distance between us she lived in California and myself Illinois we spent a lot of time on the phone. I had to go to LA on business and I always made sure I spent some time with her. I love talking with her, her knowledge and vision was just outstanding. She was always willing to share. I loved to listen to her when she was explaining a painting that she did. One watercolor painting she did was of a lady walking into a woods she was holding a umbrella. She told me that she was having a hard time finding the meaning behind that painting. She then said out of no where it hit me. "The lady in the painting was herself and I am walking into a new life" this was the first painting that she completed and my Uncle Andy had passed. She taught me when you paint, paint with meaning and that will guide your brush, I found to be so true when I am doing a portrait of a person or and animal. She had a bigger influence on me than she thought she did. Aunt Evelyn has a big heart and very good soul. She is just a very sweat person. I will miss our talks, and I will miss her dearly. Aunt Evelyn have a good rest until we meet again.

The best memory I have of Evelyn is her compassionate heart. If ever I shared with her a difficulty, a grief, a hard decision or any adverse circumstance, she would remember me repeatedly by inquiring, "how are you doing?" Her encouragement and thoughtfulness was like non other! She was the last of my six sisters.
