IRVINGTON—Una Faye Evans, 84, died on Saturday, July 22, 2017, at Rappahannock Westminster-Canterbury in Irvington. Her final days were spent surrounded by family and friends that Una Fay had touched in some small way throughout her memorable life.
From her birth in Pittsburgh, Pa., on October 23, 1932, to her death, Una nourished people around her with love, faith and laughter.
She was born the only child to the late John Alfred and Mable Elizabeth (Hill) Haddock. In 1950, she graduated from Anacostia High School in Washington, D.C. On August 8, 1959, she married the love of her life, Hudnall “Huddy” Evans. He preceded her in death after 55 years of marriage on August 8, 2014.
She was employed as a telephone operator and secretary with Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company in Washington, D.C., until their simultaneous retirement on February 11, 1978. Upon retirement, they returned to the Northern Neck where they made their final home.
Hud and Faye were two inseparable souls whose love was endless. For the next 30 years, the pair traveled the world taking in all the sights and experiencing life at its fullest. For those of us who knew Hud and Faye know that you never saw one without the other. Their loved touched every person they encountered.
Una Faye leaves behind two stepsons; Donald Evans (Margaret) of Huntington, Md., William Evans of Fort Gibson, Okla.; a devoted sister-in-law, Alice Sliakis of White Stone; three brother-in-laws, Franklin Evans (Charlotte) of Pasadena, Md., Wilson Evans (Sandra) and Woodrow Evans (Tina) both of Weems; and several nieces and nephews and friends, among those was one very close to her heart, Grace Leonard of Maryland.
Una Faye will be remembered as a bright, shining light in the various communities and church organizations she served. She was an active member with the Indian Creek and Rappahannock Yacht and Country Clubs. She was also a devoted member of Wesley Presbyterian Church in Weems.
A private memorial service will be planned at a later date.
The Evans family would like to extend their gratitude to all the staff at the Rappahannock Westminster-Canterbury, specifically those in the Health Center for their continuous attentiveness and loving care.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Una Faye’s name to Rappahannock Westminster-Canterbury, Memo: Memory Fund, Attention: Mary Arthur, 132 Lancaster Drive, Irvington, VA 22480.
