Mary Christine Mcquitty Evans, age 90, passed away on Monday, March 27, 2017 at The Community Hospice House of Vidalia. She was surrounded by her children, grandchildren, daughter-in-law, and beloved family members.

She was born in Vidalia, Georgia, the daughter of the late Ralph and Rena Sharpe, and resided here all of her life. She worked for Piggly Wiggly Southern for 37 years, and upon her retirement in 1991, was a Director of Store Accounts. After retirement, she met the ‘Love of her Life’, Gene Evans. They married in 1992 and enjoyed years of a whirlwind life of golfing, traveling, and big gatherings of family and friends! She loved these gatherings, and was an excellent cook and hostess!

She was preceded in death by her husband, Gene Evans; two sisters, Juanita Stephens and Louise Holmes; two brothers, “Buddy” and Waldo Sharpe.

She is survived by her daughter, Rhonda K. McQuitty of Marietta, Georgia; her son, Kyle (Wanda) McQuitty of Valdosta, Georgia; two granddaughters, Kasey and Samantha McQuitty; her sister-in-law, Mrs. Vernie Sharpe of Vidalia; and her step-daughter, Mary (Mike) Redmond of Lynwood, Washington. Several nieces, nephews, and a caregiver Debbie Middleton also survive.

We are so saddened to hear of the death of Christine. She was such a sweet lady and we always enjoyed seeing her at church. I know she will be missed by all of you, her family, and will also be missed by the members of Vidalia First United Methodist Church. She loved our church and always enjoyed helping with meals and events that we had at the church and we do so appreciate her love and service to God's people.

Rhonda & Kyle; I was so sorry to hear about your MOTHER - she was a dear lady and as my boss @ Piggly Wiggly Southern, Inc., i always loved and respected her...even through the years, when we would see each other, we always shared our love and concern for our families. I do pray you will have peace and comfort in knowing we were great friends.
I would be there for you this week, but broke my foot and can't get around right now.

Do know I will be praying for you all and GOD BE WITH YOU ALWAYS.
