Evelyn and Arthur shared a special bond and were best friends, business partners and soulmates. She and Arthur owned several retail stores over the years including Arthur’s, Kerry’s and Barbie Fran.  Evelyn’s family was her real passion. Known to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren as Mama, Evelyn was the consummate hostess and loved entertaining her family with elaborate holiday celebrations.  Her Thanksgiving table was beyond compare and included three full turkeys and every side dish imaginable—all served on her finest china.  Her Chanukah parties (always celebrated on Christmas Eve) were epic and included a room full of presents that took all evening to open.  She and Arthur also hosted pool parties nearly every weekend for their grandchildren with steaks on the grill and a pool house full of food.  Her sleepovers/movie nights for the grandchildren and great-grandchildren were legendary.
