Our condolences to the entire family. I knew Evelyn from the days when I was just a child and was friends with Vic and Frank. My parents visited the Kasoag establishment and I would go along. I spent a lot of time with Evelyn and the family and always had a good time, she was a great host! She was a great woman and will be missed.

Cathy,Janet and Becky,
So sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. My memory is that she was always there to support her children. She was always at your softball games to cheer you on! Unfortunately I know how you are feeling there is no greater love that a mother’s. I hope you can find comfort in all your memories. Thinking of all of you.
