Memories Timeline


  1. Margaret Evans, was my Grandmother. I am the daughter of William & Shirley Brown. Grandma, may you rest in peace.

  2. Margaret is my Grandmother, I am the eldest daughter of Shirley & William Brown. Grandma now you are at peace, free from pain, and prayerfully wrapped in His love.

  3. Margaret L. Evans was my Grandmother…I am the second eldest daughter to William and Shirley Brown. I remember Grandma Evans as a very independent woman who loved her Bingo. For some reason, her gold slip-on loafers always stuck out in my mind. I called my daughter the day her Great-Grandmother passed, and strangely enough, she said, “I remember her gold shoes.” Grandma’s now dancing in her golden shoes on the clouds with silver linings…I love you, Grandma

  4. Grandma, I will always remember you for being just you. You always spoke your mind and were very strong and I always admired that about you. I am glad for the time in my life when we were very close and had our talks and I will always hold that close to my heart.

  5. Grandma…I will really miss you, you were always able to make me laugh with your sharp tongue and your caring attitude. I wish now that I would have at least had the chance to see you one last time. I know you are better off now…in fact your probably playin’ BINGO with some of your old friends and wondering why people are so sad…I can hear exactly what your saying, but I won’t repeat it =). You will be missed deeply, but I guess I’ll see you when I get there OK? Say hello to my little boy…I bet you’ve already met him. =) I love you, and will miss you grandma. Love, Chris (one of the great-grandchildren)

  6. Grandma, When I thingk of you I think of a brightness in your suurroundings, in your clothes and in your voice. You’ve left us all many great memories, your vibrant zest for life being our guide. You will live on in our hearts and through, your children, and grandchildren always remaining by our side.

  7. Margaret Evans was my Grandmother. I am the third eldest daughter of William & Shirley Brown. I will always remember you as the stylish woman that could put away some food during the holidays (even though you claimed you could never eat that much)! We will all miss you.

  8. .::.Great-Grandma Evans.::. Tears are sometimes an inappropriate response to death. When a life was lived completely honestly, or just completely, the correct response to death is a smile…so smile for a life that was worth will be remebered always.. LoVe YoU..Your great grand daughter
