Not much is known about Evelyn's life before the apocalypse except that she may have lived in or around the Washington D.C. area before the outbreak.
Evelyn is mentioned by one of the women as she carries laundry and chats with her friend. She is mentioned having reached the mouth of the nearby bay but did not find anything, despite traveling such a far distance.
While unseen, Evelyn is among the Oceanside residents to flee their community after the bombs went off. They are rounded up by the Alexandrians in the woods and held captive as Rick secures their armory. She and the other residents are protected by the Alexandrians when a herd approaches Oceanside. Afterwards, she and the others return safely to their community.
