They were united in holy matrimony in 1985. Evelyn later retired from the Brush Country Nursing Home where she was adored by her peers and residents. Evelyn was a beautifully loving person, always considering the feelings of others with a smile on her face.

Evelyn was proceeded in death by her husband, her parents, brother (Wymon “Boo” Drakeford) and her nephew (Michael James).
