Evangeline loved to crochet, do puzzles and play cards, specifically gin rummy, and enjoyed her evening glass of red wine. Evangeline was a huge basketball fan and enjoyed watching her beloved Warriors. She was a funny and outspoken woman and was lovingly referred to as a “Pre-Madonna.” Evangeline’s greatest love was that for her grandchildren. She never missed their sporting games or school events and had such pride being their Nana. She will be deeply missed and forever in our hearts.
