Eleanor "Louise" Evans, Age 77, passed away November 1, 2018. Eleanor always kept busy. She was a former cosmetologist at Jeanie's Beautiful People Place and co-owner of Hair Creations, retired from Coleman, and later worked for First Student assisting with special needs children. She was a firecracker who was strong willed, sassy and she devoted countless hours in the service of others. Eleanor was a lifetime member of the Eagle's Club, American Legion, VFW, Eastern Star, American Families of Missing in Action Veterans, and she enjoyed playing Bingo. Though she was constantly working and volunteering her true passion was her family. She especially loved devoting all her spare time to her grand and great-grandchildren. She had so much heart and brought so much light to those she loved; she will be dearly missed. She is preceded in passing by her husband, Forrest E. Evans; brother-in-law, Haywood "Moon" Evans; and 12 siblings.

There is no way I could pick one memory of Louise from the numerous that come to mind growing up as a kid, to my now adulthood, but I can assure you there were many memorable one's between Louise and my mom Carla who passed away in May. The world has lost two great Patriots this year, who loved family, people and having a good time. It saddens my wife and I to receive this news as we just saw Louise in June and she was spry as ever. We have also chatted numerous times on the phone since then and she was chipper as ever, you will be missed Louise. Our heart felt condolences go out to the family in this time or mourning, God bless you all!

Louise was a very special woman, she loved her family so very much. We would spend most Saturday evenings in my front yard just talking and laughing and sharing each others company. She loved children and had a special place for the special children and my Kayla was one of weezies angels. She will be forever in our hearts. We love you weeze. The Bernick Family
