She formerly served as a member of the Temple Baptist in Raleigh and currently served as a faithful active member of the Saint Luke United Methodist Church where she enjoyed volunteering in all areas of service, especially the children's nursery. Evelyn loved sharing time with her family and caring for her canine companion, Ann.

She was also preceded in death by a grandson, Jeremy Allen Williams and a brother, Milton C. Blalock.

Evelyn is survived by daughters Tanya W. Williams and husband Allen of Laurinburg, Teresa W. Murphy and husband Jay of Emerald Isle; a brother, Donald R. Blalock of Colfax; sister, Sylvia B. Elliott of Summerfield and two grandsons, Alex Williams and Colton Williams.
