Evelyn lived her life in service to others. She had a love for all children and spent many years teaching Sunday School and volunteering at her children’s school. She was a long-time member of Capistrano Valley Baptist Church in San Juan Capistrano, California and had been a member of Tabernacle Baptist Church for the past 14 years.

Evelyn made a lasting impact on everyone she met and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
