Whereas, a dedicated mother and, whether by personal encounter or by reputation, a molder of character for her eight children, twenty grandchildren, twenty-five great-grandchildren, and ten great-great-grandchildren, Mrs. Evans is loved and respected by all who know her; and
Whereas, in addition, this beloved matriarch has been a healer of hurt bodies and souls, wise and insightful counselor, teacher of life lessons, and keeper of family history; and
Whereas, to honor Mrs. Evans at this very special time in her life, her family and friends will join with her to celebrate her centennial birthday and the wonderful memories she has created over her long lifetime on Saturday, March 2, 2013; and
Whereas, the Senate is proud to honor this truly lovely lady at the celebration of her one hundredth birthday, and the members join with her family and friends in congratulating her on reaching this extraordinary milestone. Now, therefore,
