Courage and strength define a mother, aunt, grandmother, and great-grandmother whose first love is for our Creator and family. With great sadness, we announce the passing of Evelyn Francis on February 14, 2023, at the age of 84 years.


Evelyn will be remembered for celebrating a lifelong legacy of love for her children and family. A kind-hearted, generous woman of faith, she was known for her sense of humor and encouragement of her loved ones. Her talent for beadwork was her favorite pastime. The most important aspect of Evelyn was that she taught her family to believe in our Creator by showing respect and love for people. She was a devoted mother and raised her nieces, nephews, and cousins, as her own.
