Susan C. Evans, 71, of Myerstown, died on Monday, May 3, 2021.
Born in Bethlehem Pennsylvania, she was the daughter of the late Leonora Mullen Barrett and the late Austin W. Evans. Sue graduated from Eastern Lebanon County High School (ELCO) in 1967. A long-time employee of the State of Pennsylvania, Sue rose to the position of Executive Assistant to the Secretary of Revenue and was an active member of the American Business Women’s Association throughout her career.
As an avid golfer, she was a welcome addition to many a foursome as she could outdrive most players, even from the back tees. Sue loved to travel with her family, especially to Disney, the Caribbean, and the Delaware shore. Fiercely loyal, a little bit stubborn, and profoundly generous, “Susie” or “Aunt Chichi” was beloved by her many surviving relatives.
In addition to her son, Kevin Michael Brown and his wife, Lisa, Sue is survived by her grandchildren, Zack and Stephanie Brown, sister-in-law, Shirley Evans, wife of the late Bruce Evans of Meyerstown, and sister and brother-in-law, Kelly and Ray Blecker of Tucson, Arizona. Sue is also survived by five nephews and their families, including Scott and Crystal Evans of Lititz, with their children Jared, Connor, and Trevor, Todd and Julia Evans, of Lebanon, with their children Annika and Gabby, Keith and Mary Evans, of Richland, Nathan and Emy Blecker, of Akron, Ohio with their children Humberto, Amery, Lijah, Corley, Obie, Hani, and Solomon, and Kyle Blecker and Autumn Eaton.
Susie loved nothing better than gathering with her family for a cookout, a Steeler game, or just a good cup of coffee. She will be dearly missed by her family, friends, and former co-workers.
The family invites anyone who wishes to remember her to make a donation in Sue’s name to the ELCO School District Athletic Department, 180 ELCO Drive, Myerstown PA, 17067.
