Evelyn met the love of her life Angelo D'Amico, known as Jake, at the May Dance. They were married on December 26, 1941 and shared a wonderful life together for 68 years. Evelyn worked in Hammonton in sales at several popular stores of that era including Arlene's, The Vogue and Sears. Her and her husband were active members of the Republic Club in which Evelyn volunteered at the polls for many years. She was also a terrific cook. After her husband died in 2009, she enjoyed participating in the Canoe Club at the lake. However, her one greatest entertainment was going to the Casino which she continued to do until 97 ½ years old.
