Dear Lisa and Anthony and family,
You are in my prayers at this time. Ms. Evelyn was a special friend of mine and I will miss her dearly. She knew my Dad loved peanut butter and often made us peanut butter pies. She loved blueberries and often bought me blueberries "when I find them on sale at Food City". I would bring her some blueberry pie when I made it as I knew it liked it :) She was a faithful child of God: Faithful to her church, her family, her friends and to God. Even the last few months when she has not been feeling as well she was still often at church smiling. I loved that smile and laugh! I will miss you Ms. Evelyn but know I'll see you soon! Jesus is coming! You are resting now but soon Jesus will call you to life. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18. With love and prayers, Rebekah Cote

Dear Powers Family,

We were so blessed to know Ms. Evelyn as a special friend and Christian sister-in-Christ! She always brightened our day just to see her smiling face and to get a great big hug. We loved her personal visits when she would stop by our workplace on her way to Greeneville to see her favorite doctor. She gave so much of herself and her love through her tasty food. We loved her desserts and her seven layer salad. She will be missed by all who knew her. May God comfort your hearts as you remember the good and happy times you spent with her. Praying for all of you. Love, David and Sandra

We are going to miss sweet Evelyn so much at church. It will not be the same without her sweet, smiling face. And potlucks won’t be the same without her delicious food- especially that peanut butter pie! Prayers for her family.

I would like to extend my deepest sympathy on the passing of Ms. Evelyn. It was a privilege knowing her especially during our fellowship meals at the church. She will be missed but never forgotten. May God Bless and Comfort you at this sorrowful time, and she rests until Jesus' marvelous return to reunite us again.
