A resident of La Porte for many years, Evelyn worked at Vogue Cleaners in Hammond, retiring in 1987.

Her joys in life were taking care of her home, going to garage sales, playing bingo, cards, and doing puzzles. She enjoyed cooking and baking as well. Evelyn liked listening to Elvis, Dolly Pardon, Loretta Lynn, and Lawrence Welk. She was blessed to have a special companionship over the last several years with Phil Mazciviech.

Evelyn had the opportunity to reunite with her son that she had given up for adoption at birth Lance (Tina) Scesney and his daughter Amber (Ryan). Even though late in life, it brought untold joys to her to be with him again.
