Evelyn Williams Fain
June 21, 1926 – March 21, 2019
Evelyn Hehmann Williams Fain broke free of the bonds of this earth and entered into the joy of the Lord on March 21, 2019, just three months shy of her 93rd birthday. Evelyn was born on June 21, 1926 in Burton, Texas. Her parents, Theodore William Hehmann and Bertha Arndt Hehmann, had seven children. The eldest was her brother, Alwood Theodore Hehmann, and Evelyn was the eldest of six daughters. Evelyn is preceded in death by her parents, brother and two of her sisters, Bernadine Foster and Magdaline Camperi. She is survived by her sisters Dorothy Howard, Peggy Harville and Nina Osborne.
Evelyn was married to William (Bill) E. Williams for 47 years from November 30, 1944 until his death on May 21, 1992. They were completely devoted to each other and built a life and family from their love. Evelyn was cherished by and will be missed greatly by their three daughters, Diana Faye Williams, Cynthia Louise Feagin, and Marshelia Jo Hickman and her husband Mark. She was heartbroken at the death of her granddaughter, Jamye Rachelle Cox, in 2006. Evelyn leaves behind a granddaughter, Catherine Annette Murphy; grandson, Michael Anthony Kovacs and wife Christy; as well as great-grandchildren, Noah Allen, Alex Valadez, Alyssa Valadez, Kylie Kovacs and Cason Kovacs; and great-great grandchildren, Destiny Penelope Loredo, and Finn Michael Allen.
Evelyn was blessed to find love and joy again when she married Henry Eugene (Gene) Fain on November 1, 1995. They were married for 19 years until his death on November 12, 2014. Gene was married to Sally Hall Fain for 59 years until her death. Gene and Sally had three sons who lovingly welcomed Evelyn into their family. She is survived by sons Jerry Fain and his wife Peggy and Fred Fain and his wife Jane. Larry Fain preceded Evelyn in death earlier this year, leaving behind his wife Pam.
She will also be missed by grandchildren, Rick Fain and wife Kelly, Jason Fain, Andy Fain and wife Kelli, Jeffery Fain and wife Lisa, Misty Fain, Brandon Fain and wife Angie, Jeremy Fain and wife Karen, Erin Fain Sullivan and husband Joshua; and great-grandchildren Corey Fain, Kendall Fain , Ashton Fain, Cameron Fain, and Collin Fain, Rileigh Fain, Hailey Fain, Samantha Fain, Olivia Fain, Abigail Fain, Josiah Sullivan, Lydia Sullivan and Corban Sullivan.
Evelyn was baptized in 1957 and was a faithful and devoted member of the Church of Christ for 61 years. She attended the Lake Houston Church of Christ congregation for many years, most recently. She had a strong love for Jesus and taught children’s bible classes for more than 40 years. She only missed church services when it was physically impossible for her to attend.
Evelyn was completely devoted to her family and was a loving and fun mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother. There was nothing she would not do or sacrifice for her family. She lived her life as an example to her family and others.
She found much joy in God’s creations and loved working in the garden growing beautiful flowers and plants. Pink roses were her favorite. She would work from morning to night in her garden at times and said she buried all of her worries in the dirt. She loved all animals, especially birds. Her zest for living life to the fullest was an inspiration to all who knew her.
While God loaned Evelyn to us for almost 93 years, she is gone all too soon for those left behind who love her dearly. We know she is in Heaven where there is no pain or tears but we will miss her beautiful face, gentle hands and loving spirit until we meet again someday. If Evelyn could say one thing to us today, it would likely be to tell us not to worry or be sad, and to remember that loving God and family are the only things that are really important in this life. She leaves us with memories of a life that’s been well loved.

My oldest sister Evelyn has gone to heaven to be with our family. Sis, thank you for everything you did for me. I remember going and staying weekends with you and Bill in Crosby. I remember you picking me up from school when I got sick. You always told me how you babysat me for our Mom. You were a very good sister. I love and will truly miss you. May you Rest In Peace.
