March 10, 1940 — August 11, 2022

Evelyn was born on March 10, 1940 in Maryville, TN to Hubert Thompson and Hazel Blevins Patty. Throughout her life, she was blessed with a servant’s heart and a sincere desire to help others. She married the love of her life, Kenneth Goins, and together they started a life-long adventure and a beautiful family.
