Evans, Joan  
Joan (Antash) Evans age 82, of Montrose, went home to be with her Lord on Tuesday, March 10, 2015. Born January 1, 1933 in Yonkers, N.Y., she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Hilda (Curtain) Antash. She was the beloved wife of 62 years to Frederick; mother to Gail Davis and Glen Evans; mother-in-law to Tom Davis and Marsha Evans; and Cherished Nana to Josiah, Lydia and Hannah Davis and Luke Evans. Joan was known for her "gift of hospitality," always opening her home for Bible studies, church dinners or anyone in need of a home cooked meal. Joan suffered much hardship in life and once told the Lord that if "He" wanted her to go to church, "He" would have to bring the church to her. Only as God could do, "He" brought the church to her and in 1982, Rev. Charles Harrah started Grace Alliance Church in Joan's Living Room. Through God's prompting, Joan grew in her faith and became an evangelist in her own way; inviting others to come hear, taste and see the goodness of the Lord at her home in Croton on Hudson, N.Y. Joan and husband Fred moved to Montrose 10 years ago and quickly found a home with Bridgewater Baptist Church. Unfortunately during the past few years her health took a turn and she could no longer host gatherings at her home. The family is grateful to the staff of Forest City Nursing Home for making mom comfortable during her last few years. Services were held Friday, March 13, 2015 at 11AM at the Bartron-Myer Funeral Home, Inc., Montrose. Visitation was held one hour prior to the services at the funeral home.
