  • Mrs.Beal and her late husband were always very kind to me as a child and teenager.I spent several years growing up in the same neighborhood by them and was friends with Angie Young-Napier.I remember her kind smile and cooking food. I always admired how family oriented they all were as a family. Pam /Patty /Peggy. A supportive,kind family. My condolences to the family and friends.

  • Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. We are out of town but want you to know we are remembering you in prayer. We know how much you loved her, Ginny! Love,

  • I’m saddened to say I’ve only known Evelyn for a short time but in that time she reminded me of my own Grandmother in many ways, soft spoken, honest laugh and caring to others just to name a few. She will always be here in my mind with the Loving & Caring personality that I see she has branded in the hearts of Patty & Amanda. I will remember her for the few laughs we shared on occasion at Amanda expense, she had a sweet grandmothers entertaining laugh.

    She will be missed by many and my Prayers & Thoughts go out to the Family, my condolences to all.
