She received her Undergraduate degree from Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, FL and her Masters degree from Iowa State University.

Like the sun, Evelyn was a blessing and touched the lives of everyone she met. She was full of laughter and joy. She was a humble country girl.

“God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more,
neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.
The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:3,4)
