Gloria Courteney Evans passed away on June 6, 2014. Please submit comments to this post and I will cut and paste a running list of memories from whomever would like to share.
Here is a link to a photo album posted to my Flikr account in her memory – if you have a digital picture you would like to include please send it to me and I will upload your photo to this album.
Marc: Mom cooked many dinners using an electric fry pan. The fry pan was plugged in on the counter to the left of the kitchen sink, and she would cook with her back to the kitchen table. My sisters and I would be at the table messing around and she would tell us to stop touching / hitting each other. We could not figure out how she could tell when we did this – she told us she had eyes in the back of her head. I remember one time moving her coiffed hair around trying to find these back of the head eyes. Later we learned that she used the spatula as a mirror to watch us as while cooked, and she could tell exactly who was hitting / touching whom.
