Born Aug. 29, 1937, Evelyn married Gussie Quint on Aug. 25, 1957 and was a member of Heartland Worship Center in Paducah.
She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who would do absolutely anything for her family, always placing everyone’s needs before her own.
Evelyn loved to cook. She never wanted anyone to leave her house hungry.
Evelyn was the strongest fighter, overcoming many health obstacles she had to face.
She has made her family strong through faith, and we all know we will see her again up in heaven walking the golden path with her.

Kickasola of Brookport; and several nieces and nephews.
