Evelyn Ann Naples, 63, of Newington passed away Saturday, Sept. 9, 2017, at Hartford Hospital surrounded by her loving family.
A resident of Jefferson House in Newington for the last two years, she was born and raised in New Britain, Conn., and attended New Britain schools. She is the daughter of the late William Naples and Elsie May (Hughes) Naples of New Britain.
Evelyn, one of seven children, leaves behind her family, Chiara Leone and her husband, Tom, Barbara Bartholomew, her brother-in-law, Roger Bartholomew, Elizabeth Sitz and her husband, Scott, Wendy Grosso and her husband, Rob, William Naples Jr. and his wife, Donna, and Marie Gagnon and her husband, Ray; along with numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews.
Evie had a sweet and patient disposition. She will be remembered for her gift of laughter and the joy she gave to so many others. Evie’s love of family and music, especially the sounds of the ’60s, was only rivaled by her love of word games and trivia.
