The business was one of several discussed by local historian Ray Beimel during a recent presentation he gave at the St. Marys Senior Center on the history of Erie Avenue.
Beimel explained that "at some point, Evelyn became allergic to flowers," and remarked to attendees that "many of you remember she was a great one for making paper flowers. The reason she did that was because she couldn't be around real flowers anymore."
