Mrs. Hazel Thompson Evans

Mrs. Hazel Thompson Evans, 84, of Newnan, GA, passed away on Aug. 20, 2013.

Born in Newnan on Sept. 22, 1928, she was the daughter of Nelson Merlin Thompson and Velma Willingham Thompson. She was a longtime member of Mills Chapel Baptist Church, where she taught beginners' Sunday school class for over 20 years and sang in the choir.

She loved to crochet and once crocheted her granddaughter's baptism ensemble and a blanket for each of the grandchildren. She never left her home without being "dressed up."

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her sister, Grace McMichael. She is survived by her husband of 67 years Edward Evans; daughters, Anne Marie (Don) Lyle, Edwina Elaine (Dave) Cowgill; five grandchildren, Mike, Scott and Keith Lyle, Kim and Kyle Bond; nine great-grandchildren; sister, Doris Williamson; brother, Nelson Thompson.
