The daughter of F. Robert and Blanche Brisse Beardsley.

She grew up in the Norwich area and was a 1934 graduate of the Norwich High School. Evelyn's working career spanned for more than 40 years with several local telephone companies. She began with C&U in 1952, working as a clerk until 1970. At this point she broke away from the telephone company and worked from 1968-1970 for The Evening Sun. In 1972, Evelyn went back to work for what was then the Continental Telephone Co., working in the accounting department and retiring in 1981 from GTE. During the years with the telephone company, Evelyn had made her home in Norwich and Leesburg, Va., eventually moving to Sidney in the late 1980s. Several years ago, she decided to move to the Norwich-Preston area to be closer to her family and has made her home in the NYS Veterans' Home for the past two years.

A gifted and talented lady, Evelyn enjoyed doing arts and crafts. While living in the Sidney she was a member of the local quilting club and over the years has made many fine quilts which her family still enjoys. She was also a communicant of Sacred Heart Catholic Church of Sidney.

Evelyn was predeceased by a son, Charles Doing, and her brothers, James and Richard Beardsley.

Interment in St. Paul's Cemetery.
