"God sees when all footsteps falter; when the path has grown too steep. Then He touches the weary eyelids and gives His daughter sleep, and so it was"..
It is with most sincere sympathy that we formally announce the passing of, Ms. Carrie Evans who transitioned from this life on Tuesday, January 25, 2022.
Carrie Lee Evans was born in Grady County, Georgia on November 29, 1930, to the late Lillie Mae (Hunley) and Kater P. Borden. After a prolonged illness Almighty God, in His infinite wisdom, gently closed the eyes of our beloved Sister and Aunt on January 25, 2022, and she entered her eternal rest. She was the 2nd oldest of 8 children. Her two sisters, Hazel B. Mills and Easter Mae Borden, and two brothers; Eugene Borden and Samuel Borden, preceded her in death.
Carrie received her education in Grady County, GA. After leaving Georgia she traveled to Philadelphia where she was employed at Leaders Nursing Home in Yeadon, PA for many years. Carrie was baptized at an early age and was an active member of Mt. Zion Baptist Church. Until her illness, she served as a member of the Willing Workers.
Although Carrie did not have children, God Blessed her to be a second mother to many, nieces, and nephews, especially her devoted nephew Terell Borden and cousin Constella Mills. She loved gardening and cooking. Carrie, along with her sister Addie, are fondly known for their delicious cakes and baked goods.
She leaves to cherish her memory two sisters: Addie Evan, Philadelphia, PA and Dorothy Jackson, Atlanta, Georgia; one brother Albert C. Borden (Tammy), Philadelphia, PA; one sister-in-law Mary Borden; special nephew Terrell Borden and cousin Constella Mills; a host of other nieces, nephews, family, and friends.
