A celebration of life for Wanda J. Evans, 91, of Bridgeport, Texas, will be held at 11am November 21, 2022, at the Twin Oaks Assembly of God Fellowship Hall in Bridgeport, Texas. The service will be officiated by Pastor Lenda Tedder. Wanda passed away in Decatur on November 3, 2022.
Born December 6, 1930, to Roy and Ruby (Singleton) Cage in Bridgeport, Texas, Wanda was a lifelong member of the Twin Oaks Assembly of God and the granddaughter of Charlie Singleton, one of its founders. She loved going to church even when her health or weather made it difficult and was grateful for all the men and women who made it possible to do so.
Wanda was a seamstress by trade. Even after retiring, she enjoyed sewing patches for various organizations such as law enforcement and motorcycle clubs. The family was never surprised to see a police vehicle or motorcycle in front of her house. Another prominent talent she had was baking. She always enjoyed baking for friends and family whenever given the chance. Wanda was also known to call on loved ones and sing, "Happy Birthday," every year. She will always be remembered as being generous, giving, and having a big heart. One of the organizations Wanda was passionate about was the Pleasant Hills Children’s Home. She had a heart for children, and even led the girls’ program (the Missionettes) at church.
Survivors include her daughters Micki Pierce and Pam Miller; grandchildren Scott Pierce (the favorite), Lori Hicks and husband Randy, Carrie McClain and husband Glen; great-grandchildren Kyle Hicks, Brooke Hicks, Morgan McClain, and Camryn McClain; and a host of other family and friends.
Wanda is preceded in death by her parents; husband Jack Billy Evans; brother Roy Earl Cage; sister-in-law Willa Cage; son Billy Jack Evans; granddaughter Anna Renee Miller; and son-inlaw Lynn Miller.
