Evelyn Marie Simpson passed away peacefully on February 26, 2019 at Windemere Nursing & Rehabilitation Center. She was predeceased by her husband Ellsworth W. Simpson Jr. Evelyn was born in Tisbury, January 28, 1944 to the late Fannie and Manuel C Sylvia.

Evelyn worked as a housekeeper for many years at the Martha's Vineyard Hospital and as well at our local hotels. She enjoyed knitting and hosting the weekly knitting group at her house. She liked to go out to dinner and attend the dock dances at the Edgartown wharf.

Evelyn leaves behind her siblings Agnes Bryant of Oak Bluffs, Manuel C Sylvia Jr. & his wife Janice of Aquinnah and Diane Jackson of Edgartown. Evelyn was a mother to none but like a surrogate mother to her numerous nieces and nephews. She was very proud to be called a Great-great aunt.
