Mrs. Yvonne T. Evans
January 30, 1926 – October 13, 2013
Yvonne T. Evans went to be with the Lord on Sunday, the 13th of October 2013, in Houston, at the age of 87. Yvonne was born in Downsville, Louisiana, on the 30th of January 1926, to Robert and Cleaver Taylor and married Millard Evans of Shreveport, Louisiana, on the 22nd of November 1950. After completing her education in Monroe, Louisiana, Yvonne moved to Shreveport where she worked for United Gas Pipeline Company. In 1975 she moved to Houston, Texas, and continued her work as an executive administrative assistant with the company until her retirement in 1986. Yvonne was an active member of Grace Presbyterian Church in Houston for many years. She greatly enjoyed travel with friends and was an active square dancer. She loved beautiful flowers, especially red roses. Hosting and cooking for family dinners was one of her greatest delights. Yvonne is survived by her husband of nearly 63 years, Millard Evans; her son, David Evans; daughter-in-law, Elvira Evans; granddaughter, Adriana Stroh; grandsons, Daniel and Elijah Evans; and great grandson Peyton Warren. Friends are cordially invited to a visitation with the family from five o'clock this afternoon until seven o'clock this evening, Wednesday, the 16th of October, in the drawing room of Geo. H. Lewis & Sons, 1010 Bering Drive in Houston. The funeral service is to be conducted at eleven o'clock in the morning on Thursday, the 17th of October, in the Founders Chapel of Grace Presbyterian Church, 10221 Ella Lee Lane in Houston, where the Rev. Dr. Michael Fry, Pastor, is to officiate. Immediately following, all are invited to greet the family during a reception in the adjacent church library. The interment is to be conducted at eleven o’clock in the morning on Friday, the 18th of October, at Mars Hill Cemetery in Downsville, Louisiana, where the Rev. Roddy Taylor is to officiate. In lieu of customary remembrances, the family requests with gratitude that memorial contributions in Mrs. Evans' name be directed to the Alzheimer's Association, P.O. Box 96011, Washington, DC 20090-6011. Her passion in life was people. She dearly loved her family and her friends. She was never happier than when spending time with her family. Always an encourager, her faith in us and love for us will be greatly missed.
