    She was born in Brooklyn, New York, July 23, 1917, the daughter of Russian immigrants Sarah and Nathan Shube.

    A charter member of the Wildwood Pines Garden Club, she served twice as president and was a member of the Ahavath Achim Sisterhood. She was known as an expert knitter and the family has many cherished baby clothes, sweaters, afghans, and needlepoints. Evelyn was playing and winning at mahjongg weekly until the age of 102.

    She is survived by her children Kenneth and Glenda and Gary and Sam Alexander, grandsons Scott and Nathan Alexander, great-grandchildren Brandon, Meghan, Caleb, Owen and Benjamin Alexander and great-great-grandson Leon Alexander, sister-in-law Helen Shube, niece Beth Shube Kilthau and nephew Dan Shube and family.

    So sorry to hear about your Mom's passing. You are so fortunate to have had her for so many years. Just know we are thinking about you and your family.


  • Bill & Terry Schwartz

    Evelyn was such a dear friend to my mother for over 60 years, and was one of the genuinely sweetest and nicest people I have known. I personally have known her for well over 50 years, and miss the lunches we shared along with my mother in their later years. I was always impressed by how sharp her mind was, her phenomenal memory of things she remembered from years past, and the warmth you felt every time you were with her. To Kenny, Glenda, Gary and Sam, you have our deepest condolences. Both Evelyn and Frank were wonderful friends to our parents, and shared many great memories together. I was sorry I couldn't attend the funeral due to being out of town this week. May you cherish all the great memories of her to help you in this time of sorrow.
