Evelyn J. Webber, who had been volunteering at the hospital thrift shop for the last three decades, has died at the age of 94. Ms. Webber died June 7 at her home in Falmouth following a brief illness.

She was the widow of Albin V. Webber. They were married for 63 years at the time of his death.

Born in Cambridge and raised in Brighton and Allston, Ms. Webber also lived in Needham and Weston before moving to Falmouth in 1984.

While living in Needham, she volunteered for 10 years at the Glover Memorial Hospital, working in the coffee shop and the gift shop.

Falmouth Hospital selected Ms. Webber as Volunteer of the Month in June 2003. An article in the Enterprise about the recognition said that she had been volunteering at the Falmouth Hospital Thrift Shop since 1989 and “has given more than 1,300 hours of her time. During this past winter, when the thrift shop was closed due to a fire, [Ms. Webber] volunteered in the pulmonary rehabilitation program until the temporary thrift shop opened on Worcester Court.”

She had recently completed her 30th year of service at the permanent location of the thrift shop at the hospital lights intersection.

She was an avid crafter, did quilting, braided rugs and hooked rugs. She also enjoyed gardening, baking, and homemaking.

Ms. Webber leaves a brother, Robert Greenland of Allston; three daughters, Judy Archer and her husband, William Archer, of Old Lyme, Connecticut, Alison Webber of Wayland, and Linda Harrison and her husband, David Harrison, of Sandwich; and seven grandchildren.
