She will also be remembered by nieces, nephews and many friends.
Evie was a loving and dedicated spouse and mother. She was a gracious hostess and nothing gave her more pleasure than gathering around a table with family and friends. She was extremely proud of her Danish heritage and her career as a registered nurse. In 1951, she earned her degree from Bethesda Hospital where she made lifelong friends. She was a friend to so many and will be remembered by her commitment to serving others, kindness, compassion, and ability to light up a room.
