Mrs. Frieda Davis Evans, 97, died on January 6th, 2023, peacefully surrounded by family at UNC Rockingham Health Care (Morehead Hospital) in Eden, NC.

Mrs. Evans was born on July 16th, 1925, in Trinity, NC to the late Essie Cobb Davis and G.M. Davis. She was preceded in death by her husband of 55 years, Thomas E. Evans, her son Thomas “Tommy” Evans, and siblings Truett Davis, Curtis Davis, Elray Davis, Marion Sibley, and Ethel Taylor.

Mrs. Evans was most recently a resident of Eden Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center, but had resided in Stoneville, NC most of her life. She was a member of the Church of God and lived a life serving in various roles in the local church including Sunday School Teacher, Prayer Warrior, and Visitation Ministries. Testifying of God’s goodness was a proclamation that she was sure you knew of every time you were around her.

Mrs. Evans was a proud mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great grandmother. Her family was always a topic of conversation and having five generations gave her great joy. Her children are Gloria Jean Harris (Charlie) of Winston Salem, NC, Janice Black of Greensboro, NC, Daryl Evans (Tina) of Manchester, IN and Kenneth Evans of Stoneville, NC. She had 12 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, and 4 great-great-grandchildren.
