She loved life and never met a stranger and loved children. At a young age, her father taught her to play the harmonica. She would whip out a harmonica from her pocket at any given time and play along to any music! Evelyn loved to play hymns and gospel music. Puzzles were a favorite pass time and reading romance novels. Evelyn retired from Signet Bank (now BB&T) and had worked at the A&P for many years.
