Charlsy was born on May 24, 1934 to Charles L. and Lora M. Rice in Lubbock, Texas.  In 1938 her father graduated from the Department of Public Safety Academy in Austin and was assigned to San Angelo as a DPS trooper. Charlsy accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior in San Angelo and was baptized in the First Baptist Church of San Angelo. In 1948 the Rice family moved from San Angelo to Lubbock where Charlsy attended High School at Lubbock High graduating in 1952.  She attended Texas Tech University for one year and then enrolled in Methodist Hospital School of X-Ray Technology.  She met the love of her life Coy Deane Evans at Methodist Hospital.  Coy was her instructor in the X-Ray program and she and Coy were married December 8, 1954. Charlsy and Coy had three children; Richard of Belton, Texas, Steve of Slaton, TX, and Jana who passed away in 2004.  The young Evans family were members of First Baptist Church of Lubbock and her kids remember with great fondness their mother taking them to Vacation Bible School every summer. In 1970, the Evans family moved to Slaton, TX where Coy was promoted to Area Manager by his employer Southwestern Public Service.  The Evans family joined the First Baptist Church of Slaton and each of their children professed their faith in Jesus Christ and were baptized in First Baptist Church of Slaton. Charlsy honored her savior by caring for her grandparents Ethel and G.W. Watkins and Eva Rice as well as Coy’s father Reda Evans and her beloved mother Lora and father Charles. As the Evans children grew, Charlsy eventually returned to the work force and pursued her passion of X-Ray first serving at Slaton’s Mercy Hospital.  Charlsy’s X-Ray career grew with responsibility and leadership as she served as the Chief of X-Ray for Community Hospital in Lubbock for 18 years. Charlsy was a creative, artistic person who loved to paint, knit, quilt and especially crochet.  Her beautiful hand-crafted afghans are prized possessions of each family member who received their own personal creation. 

Charlsy is survived by her husband of 67 years, Coy; her sons; Richard and wife, Frankie, and Steve and wife, Starr; seven grandchildren; twelve great-grandchildren; and two sisters, Janice Widener of Lockney, TX and Suzanne Dabney of Lithia, Florida.

The family would like to than the staff at Slaton Care Center and Hospice of Lubbock for their loving care of Charlsy over the past few years.

The family suggest memorial donations be made to First Baptist Church of Slaton or Slaton Meals on Wheels.
