In addition to her parents, Evelyn was preceded in death by her sister, Virginia (Gibbs) Wilford; an infant brother, Kenneth Gibbs; her brother-in-law, Jack E. Wilford and a very special nephew, Jeffrey Jack Wilford.

Evelyn enjoyed reading, writing to her pen pals, flower and vegetable gardening, cooking, and spending time with her family, collecting pig items, doing her nails herself once a week, grocery shopping, using the weed-wacker and leaf blower, doing word search books, putting puzzles together, watching the Cleveland Indians, watching and listening to the Gaither Gospel series videos and CDs, and spending quality time with her dog, Hot Flash and the cat she so dearly loved, Happy.
