“Her messy hair a
Visible attribute
Of her stubborn
Spirit. As she
Shakes it free
She smiles knowing
Wild is her favorite

Evelyn (Evvie, Ev) was born August 28th 1956 in the City of Passaic, New Jersey. She passed peacefully at the age of 66 March 20th 2023 after a prolonged battle with cancer.

She raised her three children in Carbondale and spent many years loving and thriving in the beauty of the Roaring Fork Valley. Later in life she moved to Denver to go to Metropolitan State University where she studied Sociology and Fine Arts. She was an accomplished artist, an advocate for social justice, a strong-willed free spirit and a loving soul to so many from all walks of life.
