August 15, 2022

Shirley Evans, of Allendale, passed away peacefully to be with her Lord and Savior on Monday, August 15, 2022. Her parents, Joseph and Eleanor Meyers, welcomed her as a Fourth of July ‘firecracker’ baby in 1936, and she did not disappoint. Always active in her church, Shirley especially enjoyed organizing events: coordinating and serving large quantities of food as her expression of love. She will be lovingly remembered by her faithful husband of 68 years, Vern, her children: Gary and Lucy Evans, Cindy Zorn; her grandchildren: Gary and Erin Evans, Geoff and Renee Evans, Greg and Erin Evans, Gage and Amber Evans, Trevor Zorn, and Tanner Zorn; 13 great-grandchildren; 6 brothers and sisters; and numerous nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held on Friday, August 19, at 11:00 a.m. at Life Stream Church, 6561 Lake Michigan Dr., Allendale, with Rev. Jim Maness officiating. Relatives and friends may meet the family Friday from 10-11 a.m. prior to the service at Life Stream Church. An additional service will be held on Monday, August 22, at 11:00 a.m. at Central Baptist Church, E703 River Road, Stephenson, MI, with Pastor Luke Priebe officiating. Family will greet relatives and friends on Monday from 10-11 a.m. at Central Baptist Church. A private burial will be held at Fort Custer National Cemetery in Augusta, Michigan.
