Evelyn was a “Jersey Girl” who loved the Beach – especially Toms River, Sandy Hook and LBI. She was an avid Bridge player who also enjoyed painting, bowling, and the slots at Harrah’s Atlantic City, where the family attended “The Billy Martin Roast” with Howard Cosell, Mickey Mantle, Whitey Ford, among others. A lifelong New York Yankees fan, her favorite players were Derek Jeter and Bernie Williams. A visit to Mom & Dad’s home was always “Fair & Balanced” as they were loyal watchers of the FOX News Channel. Committal will be private. Your thoughts and prayers are appreciated by the family.
