August 14, 1928 — April 27, 2021

Evelyn Ann Helmstetter passed away peacefully at her home in Carrboro, NC on April 27 after a short illness. She was 92 years old. Evelyn was the beloved wife of the late George “Bud” Helmstetter whom she married on September 29, 1951. Evelyn was born in Syracuse and was the daughter of Mary (Washco) and Joseph Rolince. She was the third youngest of twelve children, all of whom predeceased her. Evelyn was a graduate of Vocational High School. She worked as a practical nurse at St. Mary’s Hospital in the orphanage as well as General Electric. Evelyn was an avid reader and volunteered at the Minoa Library for many years.
