Evelyn was born in Windsor, on May 2, 1923, to David and Anna Pfeiffer Rincker. On May 25, 1941, in Chicago, she married the love of her life, Edwin.

She enjoyed meeting with her girlfriends for coffee at McDonalds each morning. Mom was famous for her speedy lawn mowing and her homemade cinnamon rolls. She had a God given talent for gardening. If she stuck a dead stick in the ground it would sprout into a bush! Mom had a sweet, simple, and caring nature. She will forever by loved and remembered.

(Cheryl) Schrock of Shelbyville; grandchildren, Brice, Darrin and Dallan Baumgarten, Dawn Dorn, Heather Reid and Adam Schrock; three step-grandchildren, Brent Huntington, Cory Clark and Tracy Huntington Isabell; 18 great-grandchildren; her sister, Joy Lenz of Strasburg; and sisters-in-law, Betty Giberson of Shelbyville, and Loraine Rincker of Windsor.
