Evelyn Meadows, a beloved housewife who dedicated her life to raising her two children, has passed away at the age of 97. She was born on September 12, 1925, and passed away on September 4, 2023, in White House, Tennessee.

Throughout her life, Evelyn found joy in the simple pleasures and had a talent for nurturing all things green. Gardening was her ultimate passion as she lovingly tended to her plants and watched them blossom under her care. She had a true green thumb that seemed to bring life and vibrancy wherever she went. Her ability to cultivate beauty and growth was not limited to her garden but extended to her family as well.

Evelyn's love for family was immeasurable. She was a devoted wife to Robert "Bob" Meadows and supported him wholeheartedly in every endeavor. Their marriage was a partnership built on love, trust, and mutual respect that lasted for decades until Bob's passing. Together they created a home filled with warmth, laughter, and unconditional love.

Evelyn is survived by her daughter, Kathy Sue Green; three grandchildren: Joshua David Patterson, Zack Ellis Patterson, and James Robert Meadows. Their visits brought immense happiness to Evelyn's life as she watched them grow into wonderful individuals.

She is also survived by five great-grandchildren who equally special place in Evelyn's heart; Tad, RB, Reuben, Robyn, and Roger.

Evelyn is preceded in death by her husband, Bob Meadows; and son, Robert Marshall Meadows.

Visitation will be held from 11-2pm on  September 8, 2023, at Cole & Garrett Funeral Home and Cremation Services in White House, Tennessee. The family will hold a private graveside service. 

Evelyn Meadows will be remembered as a woman who lived a life filled with love and dedication to her family. Her green thumb, passion for gardening, and deep affection for her loved ones defined her essence. She leaves behind a legacy of warmth, kindness, and unwavering love that will continue to inspire all those who had the privilege of knowing her. Rest in peace, Evelyn; your memory will forever remain in our hearts.

Rest in peace, Nana.
