Evelyn was a huge asset to our IH dealership, with a gracious welcome to everyone that came in the front door. She was a true professional in her
work, and a friend to all of us. ………Paul Wallem

Deepest Condolences for the family and friends. I remember as a young child going to Wallem International to visit my brother Steve who worked in the parts department. I would go to Evelyn’s office and talk. She was always so nice to me. God Bless.

Dear Ron and Glaser Families
We are so very sorry for your great loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time.
Evie was so kind and thoughtful. I have never forgotten her kindness. She has blessed and touched many. She will be greatly missed by many.
Right now there’s a celebration going on in Heaven. She is free from pain and diseases and no tears! There’s also a Home Coming Party that’s happening. God will leave that party just long enough to provide strength and encouragement to each of you. You will find comfort sharing fond memories that will support each other through this difficult time.
Evie has her wings and she’s learning how to fly. Fly beautiful Angel Fly!
Sincerely
Jack and Gloria Peck
