My grandmother, Hazel Marie Smucker Yoder, was very close to Evelyn. I
remember when I was very young and spending a lot of time with my
grandparents. Aunt Evelyn would come over often, and her visits were
definitely memorable. My thoughts and prayers are with her entire family
during this time.

We are not able to meet and greet you, please accept our heartfelt  
sympathy .  In the past few days, many past experiences have been
recalled...the Zook Family Christmas Eve. stirring maple taffy to candy,
playing house under the quilt being quilted. As adults, we visited her at
Sarasota and always had a great time!!

Evelyn was one of a kind and we will miss her! She had strong opinions
coupled with a keen sense of humor and always spoke her mind. She was
the last of the Jesse Smucker family that had lived at Clover Leaf and we
mourn the loss of that connection as well. I remember she was one of the
few "cousins" who ended up attending the most recent Clover Leaf
Smucker reunion a year or so ago--few came but we had a good
memorable time!    She enjoyed being with her "big sister"--her Aunt
Hazel,my mother--whom she would call "Babe" (presumably because
mother was the youngest of the Jesse Smucker children). At Evelyn's
initiative, the two of them would go off into the Goshen-
Middlebury-Shipshe Amish territory and have some fine times together.  
They were quite a contrasting pair (!) but I think they were rather good for
each other.  I have good memories of cousin Evelyn over these many
years {and of her three boys and their families!). Our heartfelt sympathies
for the family at this "bittersweet" time when we celebrate Evelyn's life
and grieve our loss.
