Lucy Elizabeth Evans, 91, Hutzler's sales associate

October 14, 2003

Lucy Elizabeth Evans, a retired department store sales associate and hospital volunteer, died of congestive heart failure Oct. 7 at Pickersgill Retirement Community. The former Waverly and Northwood resident was 91.

Born Lucy Elizabeth Steinacker in Baltimore and raised on Dulaney Street, she attended St. Joseph Monastery Parochial School.

For 33 years, until she retired in 1977, she sold lingerie at the old Hutzler's department store on Howard Street. She then became a gift shop volunteer at Good Samaritan Hospital, remaining for 20 years. She also was the hospital auxiliary's corresponding secretary.

Family members said she enjoyed steaming crabs, playing bingo and wagering on horse races. When she took a bus trip with the hospital auxiliary, she often told so many jokes she earned the name "Joke Lady."

She attended many Orioles games and had Baltimore Colts season tickets. She often walked to Memorial Stadium with her husband, Frank F. Evans, from their home on East 28th Street. They had been married for 72 years when her husband, a retired housepainter, died in 1999.

Services for Mrs. Evans were held Saturday.

She is survived by a daughter, Lucille O'Connor of Perry Hall; four grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; and a great-great-grandson.
