Evelyn attended St. Stanislaus grade school and graduated from Marymount High School. She became a full-time and dedicated mother upon the birth of her first child.

However, she loved nothing more than being in the company of her family.

Later, Evelyn travelled to Europe, the western pacific, Australia and New Zealand with her husband. She was a member of the Christ Child Society of Cleveland for more than 50 years. Her involvement with the chapter was near and dear to her.
