So sorry to hear of Elaine's passing. She will be missed by many. I always loved visiting with her. She was so kind and loving and always made me feel welcome. Heaven has a new angel now. Prayers for all who loved her.

Mamaw you are really going to be missed by many. You were such a loving and caring lady. Lived your life as Christ wants all of us to live. I will miss that awesome blackberry cobbler made in the iron skillet, I will miss your hugs, I will miss us eating out...many, many things I will miss. I can hear you say "Now Suga don't be sad because I now have my mansion, my body is whole again and I am resting in the arms of Jesus. I love you. Jan Green Olive Branch, Ms.

Mamaw took me to almost every single piano lesson over a 10 year period. She taught me how to blow a bubble, whistle and ride a bike. One of my most vivid memories is her and Papaw, Ashby and I picking peas on what had to be the hottest day in Mississippi history, all day long. At least, it seemed like it was all day long.

Mamaw didn't force her Christianity onto others - it poured out of her. It was contagious. Mamaw taught us what it meant to grow your own food. She taught us patience.

I feel so fortunate to have spent so may years with her and to see her surrounded by friends and family during her last days with us. A week before she passed, she was asking me about our pregnancy, asking me about Lindsay, talking about me falling in the ditch beside the house when I was young and she had to come in after me.

She was positive and always took care of everyone around her, no matter what. She loved her stray cats and could work and harvest 3 gardens at a time with her eyes closed. She made me a strawberry birthday cake almost every year of my adolescent life.

Mamaw helped me to become the man I am today.

She will be missed and never forgotten,

Mamaw taught me how to ride a bike, she taught me how to blow a bubble and whistle. She drove me to almost every single piano lesson I took for 10 years; when the lesson was over, I would go get in the car to find a Crunch chocolate bar waiting on me. She never missed a beat.

Mamaw read the Bible front to back many different times. I love that she glowed with Christianity and everyone that ever spent time with her, knew exactly where she stood with the Lord. She didn't force her beliefs on people - it was contagious because she lived it.

I feel so blessed to have spent so many years with her and for getting to spend a hours with her a few days before her passing. She was talking about details from over 70 years with her sister, Ann, and reminding Edie and mom (Connie) where things were in the house that we were all talking about. What a blessing that she was surrounded by friends and family throughout her last days on Earth.

Whether it was picking peas on those really hot summer mornings or (as she reminded me on our last visit) if she was pulling me out of the ditch I fell into as a youngster; Mamaw had a way of making it all better.

She helped to make me the man I am today.

We love you and we will never forget you,
Cole, Lindsay, Dylan, Luca & Peanut Evans
