Evelyn Price Burns, 86, died at her home in Hampden, Maine on March 25, 2022.
Evelyn was born March 8, 1936, in Orange, NJ, to William Franklyn Price of Newark, NJ and Evelyn Elizabeth Price (née Westwell) of Methuen, Mass.
She grew up in Cedar Grove, NJ, and graduated from New Jersey State Teachers College in Newark, NJ in June 1958.
Evelyn married Robert Lee Burns in January 1964 in Cedar Grove, NJ. She then ventured west and began her life away from New Jersey, which included life in Michigan, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Maine.
Evelyn worked as a teacher, homemaker and librarian (her favourite) during her lifetime. Evelyn gathered friends wherever she lived and was a loyal and constant pen pal.
She enjoyed crafts, knitting, quilting, sewing and more, as well as reading, gardening and keeping her home and family in good order – or so!
She is survived by her three children, three grandchildren, two grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Evelyn wished to be buried with a private service in the rolling green hills of Pennsylvania. In lieu of flowers, supporters, friends and family who wish to donate in his memory are encouraged to consider donating to Lutheran World Relief, Project Linus or the Food Pantry at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Mill Hall, in Pennsylvania.
