Eva Voelkel, owner of Voelkel Wood Crafts, Gifts & Eats, has died at age 57.
The restaurant and gift shop at 317 Probandt has been enjoyed by many for its home cooking - fideo, burgers, chalupas, grilled cheese and daily specials - as well as the house-made ranch dressing that she used on her salads.
The restaurant was also filled with plenty of gifts as well as family keepsakes that gave the eatery a friendly atmosphere. But it was Eva Voelkel, ever smiling and cordial, who made the place special.
