Our family joins together to say goodbye to our dear mother, Evelyn Fay Duffy.  Married for 69 years, she joins her husband, Mathew, who died seven years ago.

She was an avid Charlie Pride fan and first got to know him while living in East Helena, Montana.

When Mathew decided to go out as an independent truck driver, she got her commercial drivers license and joined him as a driving partner.  They crossed the U.S. many times.

For many years she was a choir member at St. Ambrose Catholic Church and she and Mathew developed many friendships.

She loved her home and had many family gatherings from holidays to summertime pool-side parties.
