Evelyn was born in West Guilford, VT, daughter of the late Walter E. and Charlotte E. (Buffum) Allen.
Evelyn was a Physical Therapy Assistant at Belchertown State School for 28 years, before retiring in 1990.
She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She enjoyed crocheting, mastering her word search books, building puzzles and playing solitaire. You would most likely hear gospel or country playing in the background during a visit with her. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family.
She was a member of the former West Warren Methodist Church since 1972, then in 1996 transitioned to the George Whitefield United Methodist Church in West Brookfield when they merged. Her passion in ministry was singing in her church choir.
