In Loving Memory Of Helen M. Evers
June’s Mom
Helen M. Evers, of Goshen, passed away in her sleep July 27, 2011 at the Orange Regional Medical Center at Horton in Middletown. She was 77. Helen was much loved by her family and we miss her terribly. The family was all at her side and we were holding her hand when she passed away. Surviving her are Bill Evers, her husband of 51 years, her daughter June and her husband Jim of Goshen and her son Charles and his wife Melanie of Hoboken. She was born in South Dakota and was a very talented painter especially in portraiture. She graduated from Sarah Lawrence and SUNY Purchase with a BA in Philosophy. She was also well known in Goshen as an activist for a number of important causes and was as well a remarkable and creative cook.
We will always miss her and know she is now in a better place.

George Gorton
April 24, 1934 - April 12, 2009

Our dad grew up on a farm in Woodbourne and our grandparents used draft horses for everything. Our grandfather didn't own a tractor. Instead he had two sets of drafts - one white, one black. Blacks for the morning work, whites for the afternoon. Our grandfather passed in 1964 but our grandmother continued to work the farm. Our dad used to let Isley walk under the belly of the remaining Percheron, Chubb. She could do it without touching her head on the horse's belly.

We chose your group because of all the good you can do and the kindness you show toward horses. Your group is just like our dad - good and kind.

Thank you for accepting any donations which may be received in his name and for creating the link on your site.

Sincerely ,

Isley and Lindsay Gorton

Love Lives On

Those we love remain with us
for love itself lives on,
and cherished memories never fade
because a loved one's gone.
Those we love can never be
more than a thought apart,
for as long as there is memory,
they'll live on in the heart.
