June 12, 1926 - June 26, 2017
Nacogdoches – Evelyn Wood Randle, 91, passed away on Wednesday, June 26, 2017, at her residence. Born on June 12, 1926, in Amory, MS, she was a daughter of the late Audley Mark and Roxalana McCullough Wood. Evelyn graduated from Amory High School. She married her soul mate, Billy, on June 1, 1946, and together they were blessed with four children. During her career, she worked at the Ammunition Plant in Prairie and the Tubb Printing Co., as well as a garment plant employee and a furniture seamstress. As a charter member of Meadowood Baptist Church, she served as a Sunday school teacher, a Training Union Leader, and WMU director. Later in life, after the loss of her husband, Evelyn moved to Nacogdoches, Texas, where she joined as a member of the Calvary Baptist Church. It was obvious that she loved the Lord and she was very passionate about church missions. Evelyn enjoyed spending time with her family. In her free time, she would go camping and she was a Southern hostess for visiting preachers in her home. She was a Godly woman who strived to show God’s love in her daily life. Evelyn’s closest friends were from her church family at Meadowood Baptist Church. She especially liked the ladies in the “Cemetery Club,” a social group of ladies in Nacogdoches who got together for coffee often. Each lady in the club had her own personal mug, a small detail that Evelyn loved. She enjoyed spending time in her garden and sewing, as well as cooking a delicious meal for her friends. She loved to sit and listen to Gospel music. Evelyn looked to the Lord for guidance in her life. Evelyn was a loving mother and an active church member who always had time for a cup of coffee with friends. She held her family close and left behind a legacy of love and servitude to the Lord.
