Since founding her family business in 1960, Evva Hanes has seen a thing or two. She’s baked, served and shipped well more than 100 million Moravian cookies. She survived breast cancer in 2015, and is now cancer free at age 85. She recently celebrated 65 years of marriage to her loving husband, Travis.
