Evie was born in Hermann, Missouri on August 5, 1919, the daughter of the late Charles and Elsie (Doll) Grass.
She attended the Hermann School (The German School) through eighth grade. Her occupation was a shoe factory worker for 40 years. She worked for Florsheim Shoe Company where she retired in 1984.

Evie was a member of St. George Church. She has been active in the Eagles, the Hermann Area District Hospital Auxiliary, and the VFW Auxiliary where she served as chairperson of poppy sales for 50 years. She was a well-known local caterer and cake baker for many years and was "famous" for her German potato salad at church and VFW functions. Cooking was not only a business, it was a hobby for her. She enjoyed playing dominoes but was less interested in cards and table games. She enjoyed crafts and for years she made the tray favors for patients at Hermann Hospital. She also enjoyed "old time" music, reading, and watching many of her favorite TV shows. She was interested in volunteer work, helping others, and social parties.
