Born in Central Falls, RI, Evelyn was 101 years old. She graduated from both Assumption Grade School and Chicopee High School in Chicopee, MA. Evelyn began her working career as a secretary for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Labor and Industries. She then worked for many years as the assistant to the purchasing manager at Roxbury Carpet Company in Saxonville, MA. She completed her working career as a Secretary and Administrative Assistant in the Framingham School Department. She married Aurele DesRosiers in 1934; they lived in Saxonville, MA, until 1976 when Aurele passed away. They had two children: Father Ronald DesRosiers, SM, a Marist priest assigned to the Church of St. Louis, King of France in St. Paul, MN, and Anne Marie Bouchard, residing in Harpswell, ME, with her husband, Armand. Evelyn and Aurele were happily married for 42 years.

She also volunteered for the Meals on Wheels program, delivering meals to the homebound for several years. Evelyn also enjoyed traveling, going on several bus trips with her Senior Center friends, as well as spending some time traveling in Europe with her son, Father Ron.

Also celebrated were the milestone wedding anniversaries of three of her grandchildren and their spouses. Her last trip was to St. Paul in August of 2013, when she and her family joined her son, Father Ron, in celebrating the 50th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood. She was a member of St. Michael’s parish.
