Evelyn Frisbee Davis, 97, of Candler, passed away Tuesday, June 22, 2021.

She was born November 17, 1923 in Marshall, the daughter of the late George and Eula Frisbee.

Eveyln was married on September 25, 1942, to Clyde Davis, when she was 19 and he was 25. Clyde was the love of her life. She was widowed at 51, and never remarried.

After Clyde’s death, for the next 45 years she lived in the home he built. She worked at Vanderbilt Shirt Co. until retirement.

All her life, she always looked after her siblings and her momma and daddy. Since she had no children of her own, her nieces and nephews held a special place in her heart. She was the oldest of 6, and thought the world of her family, and was always there when needed.

Evelyn was a Christian who loved the Lord, and had been active in church until her health would no longer allow. She loved reading her Bible, and volunteered at Candler House of Prayer.

She will be truly missed.

Graveside services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday at Riverview Methodist Church Cemetery.
