Eva Luell Evans, 85, returned to her heavenly home on July 12, 2023. Eva was born August 11, 1937 to Thearon and Marie Heaton Crosby in Alton, Utah. She was the 5th of 9 children.
She attended school in Orderville, Utah and graduated from Valley High. She was always proud to be a Buffalo.
She married James Douglas Evans in Fredonia, Arizona on October 8, 1955. They became the proud parents of 7 children, 4 boys and 3 girls. They were sealed for time and all eternity in the St. George Utah temple on June 4, 1988. They were married (almost) 62 years, when Doug passed in 2017.
Eva worked as a nurse’s aide for many years. She worked in the hospitals both in St. George and Kanab, Utah, and also was a Home Health Aide.
She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her favorite calling was working with the Scouts, where she earned the Silver Beaver Award after many years of service.
Eva enjoyed embroidery, quilting, and canning fruits and jams. Her peach pit jelly was a favorite of her children’s on her fresh baked homemade bread.
She is survived by her children Carol Evans, Teri and Ronald Bringard, Vickie and Wally Anderson, Clayton and Tyna Evans, Susanna and Daniel Bulletts, Rodney Evans, and Scott Evans. She has 26 grandchildren, 31 great grandchildren, and 6 great great grandchildren.

    I loved Eva. She was an amazing woman with many talents and abilities. She always had a smile and something funny to share with you. I enjoyed traveling with her and seeing the sights of the world. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
