Evelyn Wilcox Balch in life and death

My Great-Grandma lived to a rip old age of 82 she died on 4 Feb 1991.

She lived through two world wars and lived to experience the many joys of the 1980s such as music, video games, and art. It was a pleasurable experience learning about my Great-Grandma that helped me understand my grandmother more, without this project I would never know that my grandmas actual name was Elizabeth.
