Yes , Evelyne will be missed. I met her at Zion Baptist Church. She was passionate about the Lord and her studies. She was always kind to everyone she met. She was definitely a gentle soul. I will miss her. May God\'s love, blessings and comfort sustain you as you go through this most difficult time. And I am sure that if she where here she would tell you that, He is always near. .. With my sincerest condolences. Deborah

Evelyne Evelyne-God bless you! What a wonderful person you were to me and the rest of your friends at A.E.P. ! I loved seeing you in your office or in the hallway - you always gave me that wonderful smile. You started me on the road to make food donations to the food bank in Waterbury! Every year before Christmas you would post on the bulletin board about donating food-you said to me " come on Chemistry Lab let's go ". Well from then on, I asked our guys to donate and donate they did! I vividly remember going to Costco and buying many many large cans of food and bringing them to your office on 3 or 4 company carts! What a great smile you had on your face when we started rolling those carts in!!! Rest in peace my dear lady-you will be dearly missed by me and everyone who were lucky enough to have known you!!!!!

I worked with Evelyne at Alcort in 1978 - as a matter of fact - she trained me to take over her position as receptionist while she was to be on her maternity leave. This was my first ever job right out of high school and I was quite nervous. But the moment I met Evelyne, I made a lovely, sweet, caring and very patient friend! She always had a smile on her beautiful face and it was a genuine pleasure to go to work because of her. I remember on my first day - as we were sitting at the crazy busy front desk and switchboard - in between calls - she said to me "so tell my about yourself". She genuinely cared and was interested. I am so sorry for your family's loss of this amazing woman and please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers at this most difficult time. ❤️ Sincerely, Fran (Pizzuto) Sullivan

Evelyne was a wonderful person that worked for American Electro(AEP) for many years. God rest her soul. She led many selfless drives at AEP to help the less fortunate. She was an inspiration to all. John Krin
