Evelyn was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and a good friend. She earned her pilots license in 1984 and enjoyed travelling the country with her husband and children while running the family used car business in Mathis, Texas. After many years working for Joe Myers Century 21 Real Estate, she retired with her husband to their home on Lake Corpus Christi. Her fondest days were spent there, grilling in the backyard with family and neighbors, tending to her garden, and watching waterfront sunsets from their back porch. She was an avid reader and writer, and was dedicated to chronicling her family’s history. Evelyn’s quick wit, endearing smile, grace, spirit and dignity will always be remembered by those whose lives she touched.
A Visitation will be held at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, September 21, 2018 at Seaside Funeral Home Chapel, 4357 Ocean Drive, Corpus Christi, Texas. A Funeral Service will follow at 1:30 p.m. Pallbearers are her sons, Dick and Clark, and grandsons, Steven, Tony, Mark and Tyler.
