Former IMB missionary Evans dies at 89

Elizabeth Young “Betty” Evans died Aug. 6. She was 89. 

Evans was born in Balkan, Ky. She graduated from Black Star High School in Alva, Ky., in 1940 as valedictorian. She received degrees from Cumberland College, Western Kentucky State Teachers College (now Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Ky.) and Mercer University in Macon, Ga.

She married Charles “Chuck” Evans of Atlanta, Ga. In 1958 Chuck and Betty Evans were appointed by the International Mission Board to East Africa, where they served for 30 years. 

Evans was a member of Trinity Baptist Church, Madison, where she enjoyed working with the Homework Helpers Tutoring Program. She played piano at the Morningside of Madison assisted living community for their Thursday Bible studies and then at The Terrace at Priceville, a senior living retirement community in Decatur. Her family members said she was a passionate advocate for missions and would have wanted to thank Alabama Baptists for their commitment to international missions as they pray, give and go.

Evans was preceded in death by her husband, Chuck, in 1989. She is survived by two daughters; one son; four grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.
