Evelyn Crawford was born May 28, 1944 in Lufkin, Texas, the daughter of the late Junie (Dorsett) and Morris Cloyd, and passed away August 4, 2019 surrounded by family and friends.
Evelyn graduated from Hudson High School in 1962. After graduation Evelyn married her high school sweetheart, Marshall Lee Crawford and they were happily married for 56 amazing years. This union blessed them with two children, eight grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. Evelyn owned and operated L&M Trophy Shop for over 30 years.
She was affectionately known as “Nonnie” by her grandchildren and quickly became “Nonnie” to all the kids who knew her. She was proud of all of her grandchildren and loved them dearly, as they were her world. Evelyn’s family and friends were a very important part of her life and she loved each and every one of them dearly as she loved her Lord and Savior. Evelyn also enjoyed cooking, but baking was her specialty. Her chocolate pies, banana pudding, coconut pies and tea cakes were out of this world.
Another pastime of hers was playing “Train” with her Train Gang. They would play for hours. Evelyn had a heart of gold and a smile that could light up any room. She had a caring and loving nature that will be missed dearly. To know her was to love her.
