Dear Jimmy, David and Galen and families: I was so saddened to hear of Aunt Evelyn's passing. She always had a smile on her face. She was always willing to take on any sewing that you wanted done even if it was an almost impossible task, and with a smile. She was always a staple at church which we could count on. I was young when uncle Pete passed so I never got to know him well. I do know that from the way my Grandfather Wade talked about him that he was a wonderful man. Please know that we are praying for you and know that God brings peace when we ask. May God place His arms around you all during this time. Karen (Routh), Shane and Erika Peoples

"Idle hands are the devils playground " I never knew Aunt Evelyn's hands to be idle, ever! She was always busy making something ,churning butter,making friendship bread, hand stitched cards, or working up vegetables,to help with meals, even when she couldn't get up from her chair. You could not have asked for a kinder, more gentle soul! She is no longer trapped in her worn out earthly body, but is free to live with her Savior! Phil.1:23 ..."to live is Christ, and to die is gain." We will miss her here, but look forward to seeing her in heaven!
