She also took the kids skating and entered them into competitions. When she wasn’t busy on the water or with her children, she enjoyed going to garage and estate sales where she collected antiques. Evelyn was a wonderful cook and was known as the worlds best biscuit maker. Together with her husband, Bill, they bought their big house on Williams. They remodeled every-thing to accommodate their 6 children. It was a festive place, especially at Christmas time where it was always decked out and they loved to have all the family there for delicious food. They also had property at Lake Eufaula, where there were lots of fish fries and homemade ice cream to be had with friends and family.
