Born in Danville, VA, to the late Mellie Sisk, Sr. and the late Lola Clardy Sisk, Mrs. Evans retired from Gettys Middle School and was a member of Rock Springs Baptist Church.

Blessed with a praying and caring heart for her family and friends, her gentle witness was in her smile and beautiful voice, and was shown through her work in Ladies Ministries.

Funeral services will be 2:00 PM Wednesday, March 26, 2014, in the chapel of Robinson Funeral Home-Downtown, with the Reverend Dr. David Gallamore and Rev. Bob McCuen officiating. Burial will follow in Greenlawn Memorial Park.

Visitation will be from 12:30 P.M. until 1:45 P.M. Wednesday at Robinson Funeral Home-Downtown, prior to the service.

The family is at the home of her daughter and son-in-law, Eddie and Wanda James, 15 Hartsfield Court, Easley, SC 29642.

The family would like to express their gratitude to the staff members of St. Francis Hospital-Downtown and McCall Hospice House for the love and care they provided to Mrs. Evans.
