I just learned of Evie's passing 2 years later. I worked with Evie at Geisinger. She was my go to girl for events at the hospital. She was one of my favorite people. My sister and I loved her. So sorry for your loss, our belated condolences.

Evie was one of a kind. I remember hiring her at Geisinger in 1990 and something told me she would be around for awhile. She always was outgoing, kind, helpful and a hard worker. She was a leader as well and hopefully taught some good habits to other employees. She will be missed. I am really sorry for your loss. I feel a significant loss just seeing her face on this page and I am sad and I am sadder for all of you who were in her life. What a good lady! Bless you all.
