Evelyn was a member of the Altus First Baptist Church where she was a faithful Sunday School preschool teacher for over forty years. Ms. Evelyn's passion was to make sure that every child knew that Jesus loved them. She was also an instrumental member in th beginning phases of the prayer and television ministries. Her hobbies were her grandchildren, photo albums, and baking. Not only did she create family albums, but also historical albums. She also owned a collection of blue ribbons for her apple pies that she entered at the county fairs. She was a perfect example of a Proverbs 31 woman.
