The Bemis Family sends our sympathies. We can remember Evie walking uptown with her mother to shop at the Red Owl or other stores that we had in Marietta at that time. She enjoyed the movies at the Orpheum Theater when Avis worked selling tickets. She would come along with Avis and good to see her out and about. When she lived on Highway 81 in Watertown it was so nice to see her on the porch swing enjoying the outdoors. She also had such nice decorations for each holiday that she put up. Evie would wave to the people in the cars as they went by. When I would take Mom to a doctor appointment in Watertown she liked to drive by Avis and Evie's house to see it. I know that she really enjoyed her time at ATCO and the people there were like family to
her. You have done a good job making a life for her of family and enjoyment.
Such good memories of the Taylor family.
Blessings to you all!
