Elizabeth Ann Evans, 58, formerly of North Port, Fla., passed away peacefully Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2013, at home in Liberty, Mo., after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
She was born in Salem, Ohio, to parents William and Charlotte (nee Ellis) Taylor.
The second-oldest of five siblings, Elizabeth grew up in Sebring, Ohio, and graduated from Sebring McKinley High School. She later moved to Florida, and as a single mom, selflessly devoted herself to raising and home-schooling her daughter, Krissy. Elizabeth attended Englewood Bible Church in Englewood, Fla., for many years, where she loved singing in the Praise Band and volunteering at the Food Pantry. She was a caring and giving person whose friends will remember as a good listener, ready to help others with their problems.
Elizabeth is survived by her husband, Scott Evans of Liberty; her daughter, Kristine (Louis); granddaughter, Makayla Cerbone of Port Charlotte, Fla.; her brother, Richard Taylor of Columbus, Ohio; and three sisters, Rachel Wilson of Windsor, Ohio, Pam Dorrough of Saratoga, Calif., and Kathy Vernon of Marysville, Wash.
