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".

First Meeting

“Why, hello and welcome to our little community, dear! You can call me 'Granny' if you like.”


“Oh my! What a lovely day.”
“Don't mind my husband, George. He isn't very friendly to strangers. If you get to know him better he'll warm up to you. I'm sure you two could become good friends one day!”
“George spends the whole day in front of that darned television set. I wish he'd go outside more. Some fresh air would do him good.”
“I used to love looking at the clouds, but I have trouble seeing them these days. My eyes just don't work as well as they used to.”
“It's nice to be so close to the ocean. The sound of the sea makes going to sleep a lot easier. As kids we hunted for seashells after the tide went out. Those were the days...”

Rainy Day

“When I woke up I heard dripping from somewhere... I think the roof might be leaking. In the old days, George would've scampered right up and fixed it... *sigh*”

6+ Hearts

“It's nice of you to take the time to visit George and I. Without young people around, we'd age much faster.”

If player marries Alex

“How's my grandson doing? I imagine he's quite happy living on the farm... He deserves to be happy... he's a good boy.”
“Oh, hello my dear. I think of you as my own grand-daughter/grandson now.”

After upgrading Pam's house

“Oh, sweetie... that was so nice of you to put Pam up in a beautiful new house! It warms my heart when people take care of each other like that...”

If anonymous

“Call me a silly old fool... but I think I have an idea who paid for Pam's new house... *wink*”


“I saw the most beautiful family of butterflies sunning themselves in the town garden yesterday.”
“The good Mayor put me in charge of the town's public gardens.”
“I've been working on the town flower beds for weeks, so don't step on them!”

George's Doctor Visit

“Could you check his lungs? He's been wheezing lately.”


“Since you're so interested in my husband I'll let you in on a little secret: he really likes leeks! You can find them in the mountains this time of year.”
“I'll be baking cookies today. I like to make flower shapes in the spring. Maybe I'll tell you my recipe one of these days.”

Spring 15

On the 15th of Spring Evelyn will send you a letter in the mail. (Note: this letter will arrive whether or not you have actually met Evelyn.)

“Hello, dear...

I know you're just getting started as a gardener, so I wanted to give you a little tip.

Most crops only grow in one season. When summer arrives, your spring crops will all die out. So plan ahead!

-Granny Evelyn”


“I feel more energetic in this wonderful weather.”
“George is always a little less grumpy in the summer. The warm weather softens his bones. You might not be able to tell, but I can. I've known him for sixty years!”
“The good Mayor put me in charge of the town's public gardens. I've been working on the town flower beds for months, so don't step on them!”
“I'm going to bake cookies today. They're coconut wonders shaped like little palm trees! Heehee. Maybe I'll tell you my recipe one of these days.”
“Be careful out there, dear. You could get sunburnt!”
“Sweet peas are in bloom right now. They've got such a wonderful fragrance, haven't they?”
“It seems like we always have more visitors when I start baking cookies. My mother taught me the recipe.”


“With every year I appreciate the seasons more and more. For young people it's easy to let them slip by.”
“I've been putting raisins in George's oatmeal... but he hasn't said a word. I wonder if he even notices these things?”
“The good Mayor put me in charge of the town's public gardens. The fall flowers are delicate, so don't go stomping on them! I know how you kids like to do.”
“Today I'm baking cookies. They're shaped like little pumpkins. Maybe I'll tell you my recipe one of these days.”
“Are you friends with Alex? Sometime he worries me sick.”
“My eyesight may be poor, but my nose hasn't failed me yet! I can smell fallen leaves and mushrooms. It reminds me of the forests I used to play in as a girl.”


“Be careful you don't slip on the ice, dear.”
“Aren't you cold? You should wear a thicker jacket, my dear! This weather isn't good for my joints...”
“I usually tend to the gardens, but they're covered in snow. I still like to check up on them now and then.”
“We've lived here for over 30 years. We've seen a lot of people come and go. Your grandfather, for one. Bless him... *sigh*”
“Oh... my dear. You have your grandfather's eyes... Yes... yes... I knew him very well.”
“You should make some hot soup to stay warm. And make sure you wear a jacket!”

8+ Hearts

“[Player], have I told you that George and I have lived in our house for 30 years? I hope you stay here for a while.”

Egg Festival

“This festival has been a tradition for as long as I can remember. Tradition connects us with both the past and the future... it's comforting.”

Flower Dance

“I've been working on these floral arrangements for a week. Do you like them?”

The Luau

“Ahh... The smell of the ocean takes me back many years. Long before you were born.”

Dance of the Moonlight Jellies

“I remember seeing the jellies once, as a little girl. Oh, how I jumped with joy when they arrived! But that was long ago... I'm a lot less energetic now.”

Stardew Valley Fair

“I wish Gus would include a vegetarian option. Some zucchinni skewers, maybe?”

Spirit's Eve

“I wish Gus would include a vegetarian option. Some zucchinni skewers, maybe?”

Festival of Ice

“Did I ever tell you how George and I first met? He actually pelted me with a snowball in this very festival. He was a gentleman back then, and came over to see if I was okay.”

Feast of the Winter Star

“Oh, my! Aren't you cold, dear? It's freezing!”
