Evelina was given the Spanish nickname of Tata which many cherished friends and valley neighbors fondly called her because they were like family and took care of each other. She was known to be a hard worker who loved to cook, clean, and spend time together having fun. What a personality and laugh she had! Her unconditional love is greatly missed by family, friends, and animals.
