Evelyn T. Maki has passed on her lifelong Catholic values through recent bequest gifts to her parish and to Legacy of Faith. A member of St. Peter Cathedral in Marquette, Evelyn was an active parishioner and attended Mass each weekend. She gave generously of her time, talents and treasure in many ways, including supporting the addition of the gathering space at St. Peter Cathedral.
Evelyn was one of the very first supporters of Legacy of Faith when it was newly established in 2001. Legacy of Faith is a permanent endowment fund in the U.P. Catholic Foundation that supports Catholic schools, parish faith formation programs, Catholic Social Services and other Catholic ministries in the Diocese of Marquette. Evelyn’s great-niece, Cindy DePetro, remembers her Aunt Evelyn as a very faith-filled, classy woman who put faith first. Evelyn spent her later years caring for others who needed help. She often drove fellow parishioners to Church and helped them with their grocery shopping.
Evelyn’s bequest gifts serve as an example of how we, too, can pass on the faith.
