A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. today (Wednesday, July 30), at First Baptist Church, Southern Pines, with the Rev. David Helms officiating. Burial will be in Pinelawn Memorial Park, Southern Pines.
Mrs. Evans was born Aug. 20, 1939, in Granville County, a daughter of the late Floyd T. Lunsford and Allie Gentry Lunsford. She was a member of First Baptist Church, Southern Pines, and was employed as a beautician with Penick Village, Southern Pines, for more than 25 years.
Mrs. Evans was close friends with the Stem High School Class of 1957, and regularly attended class reunions. She enjoyed traveling with her friends and family. After her husband, Charles K. Evans' death, she continued to be an active part of his family.
