Evelyn moved to Hawaii in 2008 to be near her grandkids, son in law and daughter. We loved her very much and were so grateful to have her nearby. She became active at Temple Emanu-El by being part of the sisterhood, ran the Seniors Program for many years and was also on the Board. She always gave her all and made many friends along the way.
