Margaret “Evelyn” Goodrow went home to Jesus on May 7,2022 at the age of 86.
Evelyn was born to Olin and Stella (Bohensky) Barr on July 13,1935 in Emporium, PA. As a child, Evelyn enjoyed time with her sisters Delores and JoAnn while growing up in Driftwood and Emporium. She graduated from the Cameron County High School, Class of 1955.

In addition to being a dedicated wife and loving mother, Evelyn operated Evelyn’s Ceramics in Emporium. She enjoyed camping and being a campground host along with her husband at Sizerville State Park for several years. Evelyn also loved spending time with her family and friends and regularly attending Zion Community Church. Evelyn always cheered for the Washington Redskins and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Throughout Evelyn’s entire life, she held an unwavering faith in God, which she shared with everyone. She regularly prayed for others. We rest in the promise of Jesus’s salvation and seeing her again when He returns.
