Evelyn Clark was born in Chester, PA on November 26, 1930 to the late Orange and Virginia Reynolds. Known to everyone as “EM”. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Bennie Clark, Jr. of 22 years, Eunice, Larry, and Donnie. Evelyn loved hearing the word of God and found her true calling in sharing the goodness of the Lord.
She worked at the National Institute of Health for 25 years and Montgomery County School Board for another 25 years in Housekeeping. She retired in 2008 from Montgomery County School Board. She worked hard all her life and always kept an immaculate home. This attribute was passed down to her children. She lived most of her life raising her children in the DC area. She loved Popeyes. She couldn’t pass by one without stopping. Even during her final days Al would pick up some chicken and take it to the Nursing Home. She spent her later years in Silver Spring, MD. She was a very independent woman even til the end. When her health started to fail, Glores moved her to WV so they could be closer. She spent her last few months at Shenandoah Nursing Home where she succumbed to COVID 19. She gained her angel wings on her birthday, Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 2020 (90 years old) and went home to be with Jesus.
She leaves to mourn, her only daughter, Glores Baylor and son-in-law Alfred of WV. Three sisters, Arlene Small (Chris) of Roanoke, VA; Louise Stevenson of Washington, DC; and Nancy Reynolds of Orlando, FL; a brother, John William Reynolds of Washington, DC, sister-in-law Dorethea Reynolds of Suitland, MD; Aunt Florine Callands of Upper Marlboro, MD. She also leaves to mourn 6 grands, Kim, Telishia, Nicole, Sherry, Larry and Keenan, eight great grands, Shaun, Gary, Stacey, Kyara, Marcus, Malik, Jamal and Veronica, five great-great grands, Isaiah, Trinity, King, Neveha, and Reign, three adopted grands, Lil Al, Kim and Ronnie, who played a wonderful part in her life. She also leaves to mourn a host of nieces and nephews, cousins and friends. Her dear friend, Lucy, “thanks for your praying time together and always being there and listening”. Due to COVID, the family will have a Memorial Service sometime in 2021.
Mother, you’ll be missed but God knew best.
