In Memory of
Evelyn Wamble

Evelyn Wamble, a long-time resident of the Houston area, passed away peacefully September 25, 2017, in her home at Rose’s Retreat in Katy, Texas. Born Margaret Evelyn Posey on August 3, 1922 in Dallas, Texas, she lived a long life dedicated to her family and friends. She graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School and received a B.A. from Southern Methodist University. She married C. Everett Wamble, Jr. of Dallas in 1949. They had two daughters, Ellen Sharp Dickey Shoop and Elizabeth Anne Smith.

Possessing manifold talents and an industrious nature, Evelyn worked in many occupations throughout her life, including the arts (i.e., opera, USO, community theater), business, education, retail, interior design, and most importantly, at home as a devoted housewife and mother.  She was always working, singing, and laughing around the house, imparting the joy of life, work, and hospitality to her girls. Evelyn loved the Lord Jesus and served Him all her life, passing on her faith to her children and discipling many women. Loving to study and teach, she was a leader in Bible Study Fellowship for many years.

Evelyn was most known for her love for others and her charming and entertaining personality. Full of warmth, humor and enthusiasm, she was always deeply interested in whomever she met. She was the person that people would confide in, always listening and encouraging others in good times and bad. She was loved and enjoyed by young and old alike.

Evelyn is survived and beloved by her two daughters, Ellen Shoop and Beth Smith and their spouses, five grandchildren, and thirteen great-grandchildren.

She will be laid to rest, a private burial, in Forest Park Westheimer Cemetery. A home memorial service will be held in Katy, TX in the near future.

It's so good to see Aunt Evelyn's smiling face! Her excitement and laughter when she saw her nieces is burned into my memory. She could so easily become "one of the girls." She was loved so much!
