Condolences for Evelyn Heiner Elliott

Dear Tamra, Wendy and Tom,I was sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I was happy I was able to obtain the nice obituary. My mother, Violet Wadsworth, thought so much of the Heiner girls. They were the children of her older sister, Maude. The last time I saw Evelyn was when she attended my father, Norris Wadsworth's, funeral in Morgan. My mother had Evelyn sit beside her at the grave sight and was so glad to see her. Tammy, you spent one summer with us and we loved it and loved you. You were such a darling little smart girl. We always wished that you could have gone to California and then later back to the Philippines with us. Tom, you were born when our daughter, Sally, was born and we had such a nice letter from your mother telling us about your birth. I am sorry we didn't know you, Wendy, but we had heard you were taking good care of your mother.Our condolences to you three. We love you.Tom and Terry Warne

I used to help Evelyn with her daily tasks about 8-9 years ago. I met her through a home service I worked for and saw Evelyn once or twice a week. I remember she told me, "you look your best at 30, make sure you take a picture of yourself." She also used to have a running journal of interesting articles, or words, or phrases she would come across and wanted to keep with her. I enjoyed working with Evelyn and I never forgot our friendship because of the way Evelyn carried herself. Always organized, self-confident, and matter-of-factly. When we lost touch, I always thought of her periodically and how she was getting along. (imagine how surprised I was to see her passing) On a funny note, I had my first slice of fruit cake with Evelyn. She received it in the mail from a family member in California and she made some tea, and because of it, I like it! Evelyn, you made in impression in my life and I will remember you. It was a pleasure helping you in the small ways and time that I was able to.
