I am so sorry for your loss. Evelyn was my Mom's niece (Eleanor Larson, Farnhamville), we had great times getting together and meeting up (also with my sister-in-law Cathy Larson) at Wanna's years ago. I enjoyed a phone visit with your Mom earlier this year. I so loved talking to her!!! Wish the Tomlinson family tree book would have been finished...............
So sorry to hear of Evelyn's passing. i always enjoyed visiting with her at Bingo. She was always so nice to talk to.
So sorry to hear of Evelyn's passing. She and her family were our neighbors at one time. She was always so pleasant and friendly.
