She was a member of Marlow Heights Baptist Church and the Elevian Sunday School Class. She served on the Memorial Committee, the Christian Service Committee and also on the Kitchen Committee. One of her gifts was genuine hospitality. She was a member of the VFW Ladies Auxiliary.
She was married to the late Raymond Henry Bryant in October of 1943. They were married 55 years before his death in 1998.
Evelyn's family meant everything to her. She was a devoted and loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
She is survived by one daughter, Judy Shifflett and husband Dale of Front Royal; three sons, Larry Bryant and wife Wanda, Frank Bryant, and David Bryant and wife Aneita, all of Front Royal; two brothers, Richard Robinson of Middletown and Bill Robinson of Stephens City; two sisters, Mary Ann Guard of Stephens City and Betty Lou Kelly of Dover, DE; a special aunt, Ida Dehner of Front Royal; eleven grandchildren Elaine Zembruski, Kelly Bryant, Sharon Bryant, James Shifflett, Tara Bryant, Addie Bryant Jones, Kyle Bryant, Spencer Bryant, Saleigh Bryant, Brady Bryant and Sierra Bryant; five great-grandchildren, T.J., Wynter, Jodeci, Caleb and Parker; one great-great-grandson, Kingston; and one step-granddaughter, Angie Shifflett of Front Royal.

Evelyn had such a beautiful heart filled with so much love for her family and everyone else that she knew. She will be greatly missed but will live on through so many hearts full of the wonderful memories she leaves with family and friends. She thoroughly enjoyed cooking and having special gatherings and picnics for her family. She was a wonderful seamstress and enjoyed quilting, reading and spending time with her grandchildren. She brought a smile to everyone's face and found joy in each day. The things that were most important to her weren't things, but the time spent with those she loved. She will be deeply missed by her family and friends.
The family will receive friends on Thursday, one hour prior to the service, from 10-11:00 a.m. at the funeral home.
