Funeral services for Evelyn Pitt, 75 of Longview will be 10Am Wednesday, August 29, 2007, in the Chapel of Rader Funeral Home of Kilgore. Reverend David Hampton will officiate.  Mrs. Pitt died Monday in a local nursing center.


Evelyn was born on May 1, 1932 in Malakoff, TX.  She was the third of four children.  Her parents were H.P. Spicer and her mother and step-father George and Maggie Hall.  On August 10, 1947 she married G.S. “Pete” Pitt.  They were married 55years.  They lived in the home they built with their own hands in Lakeport, TX for 53 years.  In that home they raised four children.  Evelyn was one of the first members of Trinity Baptist Church.  She worked for the Longview ISD in the cafeteria until she retired.  She moved to the Gregg Home for the Aged in Jan. 2004.  She was a very happy and cheerful resident, and was card for by a loving staff and friends until her death.  To be a family member, friend, or just an acquaintance of Evelyn was a blessing.  She was the definition of a caregiver, always helpful and loving.  She was a joy to be around and always had a smile on her face.


Survivors include, a brother Raymond Spicer, sister Betty Spicer, her children and their spouses, Roy and Carol Pitt, Rose and Tommy Elia, Diane and James Henry, Bonnie and Laurie Sypert, six grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, and numerous other loving family and friends survive her.
