My thoughts and prayers are with you all today as you have services for Evelyn. Working with her at Loyola gave me reason to go in there everyday because I looked forward into seeing her. Evelyn was a kind and loving person and would do anything for anyone. A big heart for those around her. Loved our Popeye dinners together. sharing stories that would make us all smile. God got a beautiful angel. Will remember her always. Sincerely, Mary Gillispie Radiology Dept.
