Elizabeth V. Williams-Evans, 64, of Worcester, passed away peacefully Saturday, May 1st 2022 in the comfort of her home.

Elizabeth Evans was born in Collins, GA, daughter of the late Clyde Williams of Claxton, GA and Grace Lane of Worcester. She was predeceased by her husband John Evans of Worcester and by her brothers, Gerald Williams and Michael Young.

Elizabeth Attended McCormick Middle School in Columbia point/Dorchester and graduated from Boston High School in 1974 on Newbury St in Boston, MA, and Liz moved from Boston to Worcester over 15 years ago.  She also attended Boston Trade and Quinsigamond Community College and studied Breakthrough Ministries/ The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Elizabeth was a woman who cherished the ability to help others.  Liz worked as a surgical eye coordinator for the former Fallon Clinic, before she retired.  She had been a member of Second Baptist Church, the church outreach committee, and the mission board.  She sang in the church choir and as a licensed evangelist of the church she loved to counsel about religion.  She loved to travel; her entire working life was directed in that pursuit working as a full-time mom.  She also owned a halfway with her husband John for 17 years.

Elizabeth like to joke around, play Monopoly and shed loved to dance and she had a crazy sweet tooth and junk food, and loved chocolate pie and she had many other talents, she loved music and her favorite artist are Anita Bank and Tamela Mann and other various gospel groups.  Liz would talk for hours and wouldn’t let you get a word in on the conversation, only thing you could do is listen and say Yup here and there. To get her attention, you would need to say Liz, Liz, Liz and then she said Huh. We would just laugh.  She loved crossword puzzles and didn’t like to cook. She would say, John would do all the cooking. Her other interests were dressing up even though she didn’t go nowhere.

Calling Hours will be on Monday, May 16, from 10 a.m. until her Funeral Service begins at 12 Noon in MERCADANTE FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 370 Plantation Street, Worcester, MA.
