    I only knew Evonne for the two plus years I danced in the Black Diamond Jazzercise class. She was such a graceful dancer with boundless energy. After her diagnosis with cancer she continued to live her life to the fullest. Through Facebook I was able to get to know her and see how much she was loved and admired. Evonne showed us all how to live and how to die. That was a gift to us all. Rest in peace, Queen Bee.

    I admired Evonne not only as my sister in law but as a strong woman who always worked hard to overcome adversity, and achieve her goals, to be a blessing to those around her and to her family. Thank you Evonne for leaving us the legacy of your wonderful children and grandchildren. I know you love them so much and are so proud of them as are we. God bless you.

    I worked with Evonne for 12 years. I learned a lot from her over the years, the most important thing being life is short so love every minute of it. I miss her greatly…

    Until we get together again, I will miss you dearly!

    Evonne was so special! She was one of those people with the ability to share a unique relationship with everyone she knew. She and I were best buds from the time we met in 6th grade at the Shadow Lake Elementary carnival. We were inseparable all through school, I was her biggest supporter and she was mine. As life took us our separate ways we stayed in touch. Wherever we got together it felt like we hadn’t missed a beat. I’m so thankful for the day last summer we got lost looking for a nursery. It was an adventure we both treasured.

    I’m so sorry she passed….I know if there was any way she could have stayed, she would have. She had enough love and strength to do anything!

    I am a much better person having known Evonne and will be forever grateful for our friendship.
