She was preceded in death by her parents, Clyde and Nellie (Timmesch) Kirklin; brothers, Herbert, Clyde and Roy; sisters, Helen and Iva.

Evelyn was born May 7, 1948, in Oxford, and graduated from Oxford High School in 1966. She worked many years at Sea Ray Boats in Oxford. Evelyn was a member of Bethany Pentecostal Tabernacle on Joslyn Rd., the same church she married Richard C. Douglas in, on June 8, 1979. Mrs. Douglas passed away on her anniversary. She loved to sing praises to the Lord and loved her ministry of decorating. She was a loving wife, sister, aunt, and friend. She will be greatly missed.

We are thankful to God, our father and Jesus, our savior for taking her home. She is now with them and her family members that have gone on before her. We know she is now singing and praising our Lord and Savior. Thank you Jesus!

Memorial contributions may be made to the family.

Evelyn’s funeral service was held Tuesday, June 13, 2017, at Muir Brothers Funeral Home in Lapeer. Pastor Jeff Chapman officiated the service, with burial following in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery in Oakwood.
