January 10, 1954 - October 28, 2017
Gail Ann Evans, 63, of Garland, Texas, bravely fought a two year battle with breast cancer until the Lord ceased her suffering and called her home to be with Him on Saturday, October 28, 2017.
Affectionately known by her family and friends as “Gail Ann,” Evans was born in San Diego, California on January 10, 1954, to Marjorie and Charles Evans. She grew up in St. Louis, Missouri, yet spent most of her adult life as a resident of North Texas.
Gail Ann was a parishioner of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Richardson, Texas, where she served as a Eucharistic Minister for several years. She spent many years working for Texas Instruments through the 80’s and early 90’s. She loved country dancing, watching Westerns, and pumpkins. Her greatest joy in life was spending time with her grandchildren, nieces, and nephews, whom she adored immensely, as well as her two chihuahuas Emma and Hayden. Her love for the simplest things in life will be remembered by all who were blessed to know her.
She is survived by her mother, Marjorie Evans of St. Louis, Missouri; ex-husband and best friend, Steven E. Tharp of Garland; three daughters, Candace L. Wahby of St. Louis, Missouri, Angela C. Barthi and her husband, Brendan of Chico, California, and Leia N. Altieri and her husband, James of Wylie, Texas; grandchildren, Sarah Ozanic, Anthony Maraschiello, Laura Marie Maraschiello, Jaxson Altieri, and Madison Altieri; great grandchildren Christian Ozanic and Raelynn Ozanic-Story; brother, John Evans and his wife Eileen of St. Louis, Missouri; sister, Laura Cain and her husband, Alan of Rowlett, Texas; brother, Doug Evans and his wife Brenda of Atlanta, Georgia; multiple nieces and nephews, as well as many faithful and loving friends.
She is preceded in death by her father, Charles Evans; aunt, Dorothy Eggen; paternal grandparents Allen and Phyllis Evans; maternal grandparents, John and Emily White.
Funeral arrangements are pending.
