Jimmy Price. Myrtis Iva Lee Etheredge Evans was born July 28, 1945, in Mansfield, Louisiana to Coy and Iva Lee (Stewart) Etheredge. She fell in love with the mailman, James Paul Evans, and married him on December 9, 1962. She passed away peacefully on April 3, 2022, in Shreveport, Louisiana after a brief illness. Myrtis is survived by her devoted husband, Paul Evans, her children, Bentley Evans, and wife Karen, Becky Evans Smith, and husband Jonathan, and her first cousin she considered her sister, Sue Craig Dupree, her grandchildren, Jacob Evans, Gregg Simmons, Jennifer Simmons Goode, and husband Robby and three great-grandchildren. But all were surpassed with the arrival of great-grandson Asher Evans. He filled her life with continuous joy and laughter for the past five years. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to St. Jude Children\'s Research Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis, TN 38105, to honor Myrtis\'s love of all children.
