Evelyn Marie McAmis White of Jonesborough, Tennessee, formerly of the Greene County Ottway and Cross Anchor communities, went to her heavenly home on July 20,2023. Evelyn was a most loving mother, wife, grandmother, great-grandmother, and sister, and her loving nature was experienced by her extended family and many friends. She was the last survivor of her generation of both her and her husband’s families. At age 97, she had experienced a wealth of joys and endured many hardships. Through her years she was a wonderful caregiver to anyone in her family that required it; a hard worker both in public work and on her family farm; a wonderful homemaker and provider for her family, a Sunday school teacher; and a talented seamstress, a gardener, and an amazing cook. Most importantly, she was a vessel of kindness, Godliness, strength, and love to everyone in her life. Evelyn was a lifetime member of Sulphur Springs United Methodist Church in Greene County. In her later years she attended Telford United Methodist Church in Washington County with her daughter. She will be dearly missed by all who were blessed to have her in their lives.\nEvelyn was preceded in death by her mother and father, George Perry and Eliza Ellen Charlton McAmis; her husband, Denver C.
