Evelyn was the sweetest lady you could ever know. She always found the best in every person she ever met. Her children and grandchildren could do no wrong in her eyes (and if you knew her boys, you would also know what a feat that was!). She loved her grandkids, and had a singular talent to relate to them on their level. no matter the age, which ranged from 10 to 19.
Evelyn had the quirkiest sense of humor, and she would laugh at the dumbest jokes. She enjoyed life as fully as she could. She loved music, her recent favorites being Celtic Woman and Under the Street Lamp. Mom loved to dance and sing. She painted and loved cultivating African Violets.
Animals naturally sensed a trusted soul and clung to her for comfort and strength. She cried with her children for all of their childhood pet losses, Mom worked as a receptionist at Quail Corners Animal Hospital. She brought solace to so many people and animals in 20 plus years. Polly, her and Dad's chihuahua, held a particularly important place in her heart.
Evelyn was an excellent athlete, too. She played golf, bowled, and played basketball and volleyball during her school years.
She filled her alone time with 1000+ piece jigsaw puzzles, crossword puzzles, and after getting her own laptop, computer games.
At the beach she loved the water for its freedom, the shells for their beauty, and the sky for its promises. Evelyn collected friends like she did the shells at the beach. She found beauty in every one whether intact, scarred, or broken. She gave advice when asked and hugs when not.
She was a nurturer, sounding board, and protector - MOM. She defined the word for her children and had room in her heart to include everyone lucky enough to cross her path.
Evelyn leaves behind a loving husband Tony, three kids Tony, Tim, and Terry, Two daughters-in-law Maria Rita and Lidia, and five beautiful granddaughters: Isavel, Fiona, Daniela, Sonia, and Christian.
Evelyn Wrobel was an exceptional woman, human being, wife, and mother.
WE were as blessed and loved as she was too.
"I will always keep with me the nice memories when Mrs Wrobel made me feel so welcome and gave me that love and support that anybody thousands of miles away from own home and family would appreciate.
