RUTLEDGE, Evelyn Tucker,

104, of Louisville, went to her heavenly home on Tuesday, September 12, 2017.

Born September 8,1913 in Hudson KY to the late Dow and Leora Tucker, she retired from the Property Valuation Office. She also was a sales clerk at the old Bacon's in Shively. Evelyn was a member and a former officer in the Retired Police and Firefighters Advocate and the Police Officers and Widows Retirement groups. She was also a KY Colonel.

Evelyn was a devout Christian and a prayer warrior. She was a member of First Alliance Church for over fifty years and a current member at Bethany Baptist Church. Evelyn loved her church families.

Evelyn was an excellent seamstress, enjoyed cooking for family and friends and enjoyed meeting people. She was a sweet, caring and loving person. She served as an inspiration to many, especially during her later years as she continued to be active.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Edward; her son, Justus; grandson Justus Jr.; granddaughters, Rebecca and Jessica; and great-granddaughter, Jessica.

She is survived by a son, Robert D. Rutledge (Mary); a step-son, Gerald E. Rutledge (Ruth); granddaughters, Rachel Rutledge Watrous (John) and Patricia Decker (Jimmy); seven great-grandchildren; and four great-great-grandchildren.

Special thanks to the loving and caring staff of the Pillars at the Masonic Home who Evelyn loved so much.
