Evelyn Stegmann Moore passed away peacefully on January 18th 2016. She was born on March 1st 1934 to Harry and Martha Murski Stegmann on a farm near Somerville in Washington County, Texas. She grew up in Baytown, Texas and Caldwell, Texas where she graduated from high school.

Evelyn was a stay at home mom until her sons were out of high school. She then went to work as a receptionist and sales clerk at the Serendipity Shop in Dallas until they closed in the early 2000’s. Evelyn was a collector and belonged to several collectors groups in the Dallas and Plano area.

Evelyn and her husband were also members of several food and wine groups including Gourmets Elite, AIWF, The German Wine Society and others.
She was an avid reader and enjoyed solving the daily jumble and scrabble in the Dallas Morning News to help keep her mind sharp and active.
