Compilers note: Evelyn was my sister in law, sister to my husband. Her death came as a great shock to the entire family.
At the Daigle Christmas gathering, she always got a gift for all her great nieces and nephews, while most of the rest of us did not. She felt she was helping make good memories. And she was.
When Evelyn's parents became old and infirm, she made very frequent trips from New Orleans to care for them, occasionally staying overnight as the situtation demanded.
She loved the little children. She told my grandson, Derek, many times that he was the best hugger ever. One of our greatest sorrows for her was that she did not live long enough to see her first grandchild born. She would have been just the best grandmother. She now has four grandchildren. She is still sorely missed by all of us but expecially by her children and husband. Cynthia Daigle March 15, 2007
