One of eight children born to Francesco and Adelaide Griglioni Arturi, she was born on August 1, 1916 in Brooklyn. Evelyn married Joseph Tramontano on October 23, 1937 in Brooklyn and they raised three children together. She devoted her early career to raising her children and after they were grown, Evelyn worked in the business office of Bloomingdale’s in New York City.
Her life was all about family and her children were the center of her universe. Her entire extended family centered around her. Evelyn kept everyone together, preparing Sunday dinner for her family every weekend. She was a phenomenal cook who prepared simple, traditional Italian, Calabrian foods to share with her family. She was a wonderful mother, mother-in-law, grandmother and great-grandmother. Evelyn was fiercely loyal, and never had an unkind word to say about anyone.
