Evelyn is married to George, and lives with her grandson Alex. Alex's deceased mother Clara was Evelyn's daughter.

In Evelyn's nightstand is a note written to her addressed as Momma. The note reads:

“Momma- If you're reading this, it means I've passed on. I'm so sorry you had to go through this. Know that I love you both.

Don't be too upset, I'm with Yoba now.

My final request: take care of Alex. He needs a family, something stable. He's a good kid.

Love, Clara”

This is possibly a note from Evelyn's daughter, Clara, who is the mother of Alex. Clara passed away and left Alex to live with Evelyn and George.

In the beginning of Stardew Valley, when meeting all the townspeople, Evelyn will give you permission to call her "Granny".
