Evalyn Henderson Crouch

She was welcomed into Heaven by not only her Lord and Savior but also her parents and sisters, Emily Springer and Beth Vance. After graduating from Terrell High School, she worked at American National Bank for 10 years. During that time, she married her soulmate, James F.  Crouch on October 24, 1947 in Terrell. A devoted woman of faith, Evalyn was an active member of First Baptist Church, Terrell, serving many years as a teacher and director in the children’s division and worked in Vacation Bible School every summer. Seeing children learn about Jesus and instilling a Christian foundation was of most importance in her life. Along with her devotion to children’s Sunday School, she had a passion for the Friends In Touch Ministry at FBC, Terrell, and enjoyed her time ministering to others. Her favorite past times were reading and spending time with family. Her most admired characteristics were her permanent smile, being an excellent listener, putting others first and above all else her love for Jesus.
