Even up to her last days, she would always ask “How’s everyone doing? She was a wonderful wife, mother, companion and friend to all. Evelyn would always find a way to make a conversation, and made everyone around her feeling good. Evelyn married the first love of her life, John Tusing, on November 19, 1949 and enjoyed 43 wonderful years with John. She moved to Concordia Lutheran Hone in 2003, and there met the second love of her life, Mr. Clarence Wagner. They enjoyed being together for 16 years.
Evelyn was a member of St Luke’s Lutheran Church in Saxonburg PA and prior to that, First Lutheran Church in New Kensington, PA. She was very active in her church community and truly knew what it was to be Christian.
