Obituary for Evelyn G. Pope

Evelyn Grace Pope

The sun rose on September 23, 1931 and a flower bloomed.

Evelyn Grace was born in Dunn, North Carolina to the late Katherine & Ralph Scott.
After the passing of her father, her mother relocated to Newark, New Jersey. Evelyn was educated in the Newark school system, attending Central High School. Evelyn has a passion for caring for people. She extended her education and gained employment in 1951 with the Greystone Psychiatric Hospital where she retired from in 1993 after forty years of service.

In 1955, Evelyn wed the late Sydney Pope. She was a devoted and loving wife. To this union, four children were born: Gregory, Marcus, Anthony, and Karen.
Evelyn’s faith in Jehovah God was an instrument of good, as she was always giving of herself and asking for nothing in return. With Evelyn, family was always first. This included her passion for foster children. She was full of love, willing to make any sacrifice to help the helpless.

A few years after retiring, Evelyn returned to work as a nanny. As faith would have it, she found a second family: Mr. & Mrs. Gabriel, and their three loving children, Amanda, James, and Lillian.

The sun set for ever land on November 17, 2019.

Two brothers, Lawrence and Ralph Scott, preceded Evelyn in death. Her four children, Gregory, Marcus, Anthony, and Karen, six grandchildren, and twenty-two great-grandchildren, in addition to a host of other relatives and friends, mourn her. Evelyn Grace was the eldest living relative of our family.
