Evelyn was a longtime member of Fulton Union Church, Ladies Elks and Swanton American Legion Auxiliary. Evelyn was full of life and spunk. She loved the outdoors, taking great pride in her gardening skills. Evelyn also loved to watch her family and people in the neighborhood enjoy her beautiful pool on hot summer days. She was known as “Grandma” throughout the community. Around Halloween everyone would get so excited for her famous Popcorn Balls. Evelyn was a woman of many talents, from an excellent baker to creating beautiful center pieces. She could do it all. Her most enjoyable moments were the ones spent with her family.

Evelyn was preceded in death by her husband, Harmon on July 15, 1991; her son, Aaron Babcock; 7 brothers and 3 sisters.

Evelyn will be missed by so many here, but she'll be blessed with such a Joyful Reunion In Heaven, with Harmon, Aaron, and others. ❤

Evelyn and my mother were lifelong best friends. Two very beautiful women of wisdom and Christian values. Both were highly esteemed and loved by family and everyone who knew them. Evelyn passed at the same age as Mom and I hope they are again enjoying one another's company along with Harm and Dad (who are probably off fishing somewhere together).
