Heaven is sweeter today as Ms. Evelyn Poe entered the gates with Jesus to greet the love of her life and all her family and friends who have gone before her, June 17, 2019.
She was born July 10, 1935. Evelyn’s smile was contagious and lit up any room. Evelyn loved attending church at Quinton Memorial. She had an amazing green thumb and kept her windowsill full of flowers and plants and was always willing to share a cutting. She was the daughter of the late Fred and Lela Deals.
She is preceded in death by husband, Donald Poe; and sister, Doreen Carringer.
She is survived by sisters, Lugene McClure, Sybil Morrow and Joyce Plumley; sisters-in-law, Ilene Teasley, Cutene Millsaps and Hazel Poe; many nieces and nephews, as well as great-nieces and nephews who she adored and thought of as her children and grandchildren.
A special thanks goes out to Melissa Clifton, Greg West and the team of caring friends at Quinton Memorial for going above and beyond their responsibilities. She made many special friends who grew to love her and treat her as their own.
Funeral services were held Wednesday, June 19, 2019, at Love Funeral Home in Dalton. Evelyn was laid to rest in Whitfield Memorial Gardens.
Love Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.
