Ev was one of the first friends I made working in "Plant" at Bell. I loved her humour, work ethic, and common sense wisdom. Always, speaking about her kids (who were just about my age) Kelly, Kevin and Keith and hubby Bob. Few years later I worked with Kelly and soon realized she was a "chip off the old block". Great ladies such as these are created by genes and family values. I am a better person for knowing you Ev and frequently recall the fun we had working and lunching together! You were loved!
