Tim and I are so very sorry for your loss. Tim was Captain at Cedar Point Police and just loved his relationship with her. As members of Grace Lutheran Church we got to continue conversations with her before and after services for many years. She was such a joy in our lives.

Lydy, so very sorry for your loss. We enjoyed time with your mother and Ed.
May she rest in piece.
Love, Mary & Al
Dear LIndy, Your mother was such a special lady, I will always remember her with love. She always supported the shelter and truly cared about God’s creatures.
My sympathy to you and Pat as I know you will miss her greatly.
So many good memories of what a good friend she was to my Mother and to are whole family. Thinking of you Lindy and sending much love.. I can remember when my Mom would be home alone and she would let her dog Rex out and when he didn’t come back your Mom would leave work to chase him down for her since she was in a wheelchair. So many stories like that how she went out of her way for others. She was a true friend.
So sorry you lost your Mom. Evie will be missed. She was so fun to talk with and always had such great stories to tell. She was one of a kind. I will miss her smile and laughter. Love, Connie
Thank you all. I’m lost.
My deepest sympathy Lindy, & dear Friends.
During our younger years I loved running into Evie & friends. An Adult beverage later & we were laugh crying or talking politics. I was fortunate in getting to know her again at Grace. I enjoyed our conversation!
R.I.P my friend
I took care of sweet Evelyn at the care facility for a couple months, nothing but love she had for all of us. Eve would wait for me after lunch everyday to come eat a piece of candy with her or bring her some ice cream. She would love giving everyone anything she had to offer. And she was so fashionable and always had something she wanted to do! She also would called me every other day and made sure I was doing okay, she’s truly one of the best people I’ve got to take care of. My condolences to the family.
