She loved visiting art museums, catching up on stage shows and concerts, watching the latest movies, and sharing gourmet meals with family, friends and neighbors. She routinely supported and volunteered at various organizations. On the weekends Evelyn was often seen walking her dogs, shopping at boutiques, and enjoying a good happy hour.
