Evelyn Griffith, of Garden Spot Village in New Holland, PA, died June 29, 2019 at the age of 83. A beloved wife and mother, Evelyn was born in Edgewater, NJ, to the late Tobias and Alvilde Rheinerston Egeland, and was preceded in death by her husband, Elmer Eugene Griffith.

Throughout her life, Evelyn brought the heart of a volunteer and a perceptive wit to the organizations and activities she took part in. While raising her family, she worked at Great Valley High School for several years in Malvern, PA, and later as an administrative assistant for a chemical company. She was passionate about helping others, volunteering for many different non-profit organizations, including local food banks and the ReUzit shop in New Holland, and lending her knitting talents to create sweaters for Knit for Kids and blankets for hospice.

Evelyn was also an active and energetic community member. In Malvern, she led the women’s group of her church and then was a member of St. Stephen Reformed Church in New Holland. As an avid bowler until recent years, her name was a familiar sight in the local newspapers for achieving the high score for the week. She also enjoyed playing cards and participating in weekly Pinochle and Weirdo games with her friends at Garden Spot Village.

Surviving are two daughters, Vickie Lynn Wolfe of Leola, PA, and Linda Ann Custer of Jacksonville, FL; three grandchildren, David Bremner of Pittsburgh, PA, Brian Pitt of Jacksonville, FL, and Lauren Amacker of Jacksonville, FL; three great grandchildren; and a brother, Edgar Egeland of Temple, TX. Evelyn was preceded in death by a daughter, Sherry Lee Griffith.

I am very sorry to hear of the loss of Evelyn. I got to know her and Elmer through Bowling at Blue Ball. Elmer and I roomed together at the State Legion bowling tournaments. I was around the high school a lot with Football and would always see Evelyn out for a walk, she always took time to stop and talk. I enjoyed them both and was always thankful that they came into my life. I will find peace knowing that they are together again and pray that everyone else can do the same.

Vicki and Linda and family,
Though I only knew her for a few months, your Mom and I became good friends. We shared many good times at the Harvest Table, laughing and/or complaining about food and life at GSV. I will miss her company.
With loving thoughts and prayers, Barb Baxter
