Evelyn’s confirmation verse was Deuteronomy 31:8. “The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” On January 28, 1942, Evelyn was united in marriage to Carl John Grosshuesch at St. Peter Lutheran Church in Watertown.
