Evelyn Joann Vallot
November 15, 1935 – April 28, 2021
Evelyn Vallot, 85, of Sun Lakes, Arizona passed away on April 28, 2021 after a long illness. She was born in Shelby, North Carolina in 1935 and was the youngest of 4 children born to Joseph and Lucy Barnett. Her siblings, Joseph, Esther and Doris all preceded her in death. The family moved to Detroit when Evelyn was seven years old and that is where she spent her formative years. One day when she was working at the local Tastee Freeze, she caught the eye of a handsome young man named John Vallot. He became the love of her life and they remained married for almost 60 years until his passing in 2017. They would eventually have two children, daughter Michele and son Keith.
Evelyn worked as a Registered Nurse for many years, first in the O.R. then as a School Nurse. She thoroughly enjoyed all the facets of Nursing that she pursued. She was a member of the Chi Eta Phi Nursing sorority and the social club, the Chums. When it came time to retire, Evelyn and John chose Arizona.
When not busy with her family or at work, Evelyn loved to shop, do word search puzzles and travel. Her two favorite destinations were Egypt and Alaska.
She was a gracious and sophisticated woman with a warm heart and a special sense of style.
She is survived by her daughter Michele, son Keith, several nieces and nephews as well as many friends.
God looked around His garden And found an empty space, He looked down upon the earth, And he saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you, And lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain. He knew that you would never Get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough, And the hills were hard to climb. So He closed your weary eyelids, And whispered "Peace be thine".
It broke our hearts to lose you, But you didn't go alone. For a part of us went with you, The day God called you home.
