Born and bred in Sydney Australia, Evelynne Cherny married and raised two children whilst helping her husband in their pharmacy. After losing her husband of 42 years, Evelynne decided that life in Israel would suit her perfectly. She came to live in Israel in March 2013 and settled in Modiin where her daughter and family live. Her son and his family live in Perth Australia so Evelynne continues to commute annually. Having always been involved in community life she has become an active member of both ESRA and Hadassah in Modiin.
