Evelyn and I were quilting buddies. So sad to hear of her passing. I know she is in Heaven today, reunited with all her loved ones. She will be fondly remembered by all who knew her. It is a loss to all of us here on earth. Janice and Gary Pitt, Greenville, Texas
Evelyn was a dear friend to my late mother-in-law. I have only known her for the past 15 years. She was a beautiful person. The beautiful quilts she made and all the volunteer work she did will be missed by all. She was truly a child of God. My prayers are with the family at this time. We will miss sitting next to her at church.

God sent his angels down to get a flower for is Bouquet and they chose Evelyn. So she could walk the streets of gold. And flower all along the streets that never fade. And it broke our hearts but she took a little of us with her. And she will be in our hearts forever. Amen
What a beautiful friend and lady -- she will always be cherished in my heart--I pray the Lord will wrap your family in His loving arms and give you the comfort and love during this difficult time
Will miss this wonderful lady! She was always a joy at the family reunions!!
From the first time Evelyn came over to our home almost 7 years ago to introduce herself and welcome us to Coin, she had a place in my heart. Her Beautuful Family was often the topic of conversation. From watching her in the middle of winter trek out to the barn to take care of her chores, to organizing the many Library dinners, and volunteering at the local Rest Homes, and too many more to mention, she was one tough cookie, that I admired to the highest respect. She lived her life to the fullest and let nothing stop her. I Will Miss Her Dearly, Love You Evelyn!
Our thoughts and prayers goes out to the family. Ed and I have wonderful memories being with you all. Evelyn was like a second mother to us. Wonderful lady. Loved our chats when we saw each other. Will miss her very much.
Our Thoughts and Prayers go out to Evelyn's beautiful family! Evelyn was such a sweet soul, caring and giving. May the wonderful memories that you have, give you comfort at this time. And may God give you His Comfort and Peace, in the days ahead and forever. Rest in Eternal Peace, Evelyn Loghry, Child of God! Love and Hugs!
