Evelyn graduated from Western Hills High School in 1958. After graduation, Evelyn worked for Fifth Third Bank before moving onto roles with the Girl Scout Council, Art Gallery, and Great American, among others.

Evelyn is predeceased by her husband, Bobby Lee Turner, whom she married on January 24, 1959.

Evelyn is survived by her beloved children, Lorie Turner, of Cincinnati, and Robert (Bobby) Turner and his life partner, Pam Kamp, of Bennington, Ind., who will remember their mother as the loving and selfless woman she was.
