After her completion and the ending of the war, she would marry Harold William Wolslegel in Tacoma.

Evelyn and Harold had three children while in Tacoma and in 1962 relocated to Seattle where mom4they would remain. Evelyn was an avid baseball fan, mystery novel reader, and great listener.

She was proceeded in death by one grandchild.

Evelyn was and will forever be loved and adored by all that met her. She will be greatly missed, but always remembered.

    I very fondly and well remember Evelyn from the happy years I knew her family and was fast friends with her son Mike. She always was warm and welcoming and tolerant (at least to a point) of the silliness we all seemed to indulge in. Good and memorable times were had and both Mr. And Mrs. Wolslegel administered enduring life lessons simply by example. It’s been so many years since I was in touch with this family, but I can easily sum up Evelyn’s voice and manner. It’s so pleasing to know she had such a long life amid so many who loved her and my wish is for comfort and peace to those lucky ones who knew her for so long and who will miss her going forward.
