Evelyn Louise Roberts Walls, born August 23, 1920, went peacefully in her sleep to meet her heavenly Father and to reunite with the love of her life, Clyde Walls. They were married for fifty-two years before his death in 1988. They ran the Clyde Walls Grocery store for 26 years. She spent her entire life taking care of others as a lifelong resident of the Judah community and a member of Wallfield Freewill Baptist Church.

She enjoyed cooking, gardening, canning, talking on the phone, and of course, watching her "stories." She loved spending time with all her family and sitting on her front porch and swinging. She graciously opened her home to anyone needing a place to stay while offering them a hot meal and clean clothes.

Survivors include her son, Larry Hood Walls (Joyce Tutor); grandchildren, Kevin Walls (Sherrye), Kim Walls Simmons (Stacy), Kyla Walls McCoy (Mitch); great-grandchildren, August Walls Collums (Luke), Jessica Walls Hamilton (Nathan), Cassie Walls Hamilton (Ben), Caleb Walls, BJ Simmons, Lee Pearson Simmons, and Deuce McCoy; great-great grandchildren, Jaxon Collums, Sadie Collums, Hiett Hamilton, Walls Hamilton, Malachi Hamilton, Jules Hamilton, and McAuley Hamilton; siblings, Bernice Jenkins, Royce Roberts (Sue), Merle Murphree (David), and Keith Roberts (Ann).

She was preceded in death by her husband, Clyde Walls; parents, Ed and Irene Roberts; siblings, Doyle Roberts, Idele Philips, Jo Ellen Gillespie, and Dorothy Morphis.

Visitation will be 2:00pm-6:00pm, Sunday, July 23, 2017, at Browning Funeral Home and 1:00pm-2:00pm, Monday, July 24, 2017, at Cooke Memorial Church. A service celebrating her life will be held at 2pm at Cooke Memorial Church with Bro. Junior Ritchie and Judge Jimmy Roberts officiating. Burial will be at Cooke Memorial Church Cemetery.

Pallbearers will be Caleb Walls, BJ Simmons, Andrew Morris, Barry Jenkins, Omar Ahmed, and David Walls. Honorary pallbearers will be Shane McGregor, Trevor McGregor, Randy Roberts, and Brandon Jenkins.
