Junior and Evelyn eventually made a warm and welcoming home in Jessup, MD and later in Selbyville, DE where most of the time could find her endulging in yard work, sitting by the pool, having coffee on the back porch enjoying the sun and watching the boats go by, watching a game show with her sweetie or even baking in the middle of the night. Evelyn was a woman who stood strong in her faith and loved nothing more than to sing praises to His name. She was a member of the Friendship Methodist Church in Berlin, MD.
