It is with a great sense of sadness that we learned of the passing of our beloved Treasurer and dear friend Evelyn Ludwig on November 3, at the age of 81.
Besides being our Treasurer for the past 6 years, Evelyn is best remembered for her willingness to help out wherever she could, whether it was making the arrangements for our annual Christmas party, greeting people who stopped at our booth at the annual Hofstra Irish Festival, or volunteering for other events in which the Forum participated. At our monthly meetings, Evelyn was always one of the first to arrive at the library to help set up the Forum displays, assist the Hospitality group in setting up the refreshment table, greeting participants and, when needed, helping sign in members, and of course selling the 50/50 chances.
Recognizing all of the contributions she made over the years to the success of the Forum, last year the Board of Directors honored her with the Forum’s 2019 Certificate of Appreciation and named her “Volunteer Extraordinaire,” a designation she so justly deserved.
We extend our deepest sympathy to Evelyn’s loving husband, Joseph; her children and grandchildren; and her sister, Forum member Margaret Gonzalez, during this time of great sadness.
Suaimhneas siorai Da hAnam Uasal…Eternal rest to her gentle soul.
