Evelyn C. Miller

January 8, 1924May 6, 2019

These are the treasured memories of Evelyn C. Miller, who was born on January 8, 1924 and slipped from this life into the next on May 6, 2019.

The angels delivered twins on a cold January morning in New Boston, Texas. Raised there until about the age of four, she and her family of seven, moved to Colorado City, Texas in a Model T Ford. West Texas provided her with a home, education, heartache and marriage. She lost her father to cancer at the age of eleven, lived through the depression and married my father at the age of 17.

She became the wife of an oil field worker, Neal Bassham. In her early twenties, she became the mother of two daughters, JeNeal Bassham Carter and Lea Bob Bassham Gardner. Her devotion was to her religion and her family. She developed a personality full of spit fire and friends. Loved a joke and could tell a hilarious one herself.

After my father passed, she married a Cajun cowboy. Dempsy Miller gave her the second phase of her life, filled with good cooking and dancing. They could waltz across Texas and back. Upon his passing, she sold her home of 30 years and moved to the Oaks in Georgetown, Texas. There she found the third phase of her life. Another home, good friends and happiness.

One bright morning in May, the angels came and took her to her eternal home. She is once again with her loved ones. No doubt with her twin sister, laughing about old times.

Those left behind to cherish her memory are her daughters, Lea Bob Gardner and JeNeal Carter; eight grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren.

A memorial service celebrating Evelyn's life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 1, 2019 at Cook-Walden Davis Funeral Home in Georgetown.

We built our home in Sun City 4 years ago. Before building, I rented 2 homes on Larkspur, where I met and got to know Eve. We got together most evenings in her garage and talked, and drank coffee. She always made me laugh. The world will not be the same with out Eve. I will be thinking of her on June 2, however I will be in the road going to our summer home in Idaho.
I will miss Eve the rest of my life. Bette Werlin
