MEEKER | Longtime Meeker resident Evie Chambers is this week’s “home of” honoree. Evie moved here in 1996 with her family.
Evie is a licensed insurance agency team member for the Kevin Amack State Farm Insurance Agency in Meeker and Rangely. Evie formerly owned and operated The Brick House Bed & Breakfast in Meeker. She also worked as a cook at the Meeker Cafe for a while.
Evie is known for her fabulous cakes and wedding cakes. “I started with City Market when I was 22. I had on-the-job training as a baker and cake decorator. I traveled and trained bakers and cake decorators for City Market for a lot of years,” Evie explained.
Evie has two grown sons. Her son Bobby Griffin is a construction worker. Bobby and his daughter Delayne live in Grand Junction. Her other son Garrett Griffin is a pre-med student at the University of Colorado in Boulder.
Evie’s only sibling is her sister Cindy Foster. Cindy, her husband Pete Barcelone and son Jeff live in Colorado Springs. Evie’s “favorite” aunt Erika Noland lives in Clyde, N.C.
“I love horseback riding through the woods, cross country skiing and spending time with my family and friends,” Evie said.
I like the beautiful scenery here, my friends, my beautiful home and great neighbors. Meeker is a wonderful place to live,” Evie added.
