Evelyn Carmichael, 92, passed peacefully into eternal life, on Thursday, June 29, 2017.

Funeral services will take place on Monday, July 3, at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Apalachicola, beginning with the rosary at 10:30 a.m., followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m.

Evelyn was born and raised in Meridian, Mississippi where she met and married the love of her life, Vaughn Carmichael, who preceded her in death in 2006 after 59 years of marriage.

She was loved and cherished by her five daughters, Cheryl McCarron (Mike), Marti Meyers (Tom), Barbara Laub (Jim), Linda Mayfield (Max), and Gloria Paquin (Greg). She delighted in her 16 grandchildren and was over the moon about her 13 great-grandchildren.

Evelyn was kind and compassionate and found joy in serving others. She had a special gift for making others feel loved and welcomed. For 33 years her beloved Eastpoint home, "Eye of the Storm" became the special place where so many family memories were made. Evelyn often ended her day by watching the sunset over Apalachicola Bay. Every time her family views a sunset they will always be reminded of her beautiful spirit.
