Lurline Evans
Lurline Evans

After both worked in Midland for several years as young adults, at the same office building, they became reacquainted from school, dated, married, and began a family. They switched to farming in 1961 and built their rural home of 50 years in 1964. When the change was made from office work to farming, Bob asked Lurline what she thought and she replied, "Whatever you decide, I'll go with you." And they walked together side by side till her passing. Behind every successful man is a good woman, and it certainly held true for Lurline.  She was a strong and capable partner and a loving mother to her children and grandchildren.  

Lurline enjoyed working outside, growing native flowers, trees, and shrubs, and she was especially proud of her bluebonnets. She loved to travel with her longtime dearest friend, Nita Lea, and even got Bobbie to take her on some trips that weren't just for fishing.  

Those left to cherish her love and memory are her husband:  Bob Evans of Midland; two sons:  Joe Evans, and Rex Evans and wife Anne, of Midland; two daughters:  Linda Rodriguez and husband Michael of Midland, and Renvy Smith and husband Chris of Waxahachie, TX; and three grandchildren:  Jacob Evans, James Evans, and Garrett Evans, all of Midland. 

She was preceded in death by her parents and two brothers:  Henry Floyd and Max Floyd, Sr.
