ARONSON, EVELYN "EVEY" HORELICK: 1924-2018, on Wednesday, October 3, 2018. Evey, the youngest child of Samuel and Esther F. Horelick, grew up in Brighton Heights, North Side Pittsburgh. She was a graduate of Oliver High School and the University of Michigan where she was a music performance and composition major. Evey married Morton Aronson in December, 1946 to whom she remained devoted and in love for over 72 years. They had three children, Richard (Roberta), Carol Sue Aronson Soifer (Bruce) and Thomas. She was also proud of her grandchildren, Esther Frances Aronson (Michael Blackburn), Rachel Ann Aronson (Jacob Garguilo), Scott Samuel Soifer and Jason Matthew Aronson Soifer (Rachel Zamoiski). Great-Grandchildren are Lucas Aronson, Lily Aronson, Joseph Soifer, Julia Soifer and Aron Blackburn. Evey was strikingly beautiful and charming in so many ways and her positive, optimistic (sometimes over the top idealism) was noted and always appreciated by her family. Her strong talent as a pianist and musical composer was astonishing by any measure. Even so, she was so spontaneous and casual about her keyboard renderings and original music. Evey held five Library of Congress copyrights for her work including her most known, “Our Love is the Talk of the Town,” written as a student. Evey went on to inspire her family including her son in music and is also beloved for her own lullaby sung to generations of her family known as “Go to Sleep…” Evey enjoyed painting and gardening and had passion for animals great and small. Evey’s unpretentious sense of wonder coupled with her devotion, dignified view of self and oversight of an organized and well-orchestrated household was a stand-out, but perhaps her natural charm will be remembered and missed most by all of us who loved her.
