Obituary of Evelyn Hattaway

Evelyn Hattaway, 85 Evelyn Hattaway went to her new home on January 1st 2022. She was surrounded by her love ones. Evelyn worked in her early years after high school at Lake Alfred City Hall and USDA in Lake Alfred. After going on a blind date with Herbert Hattaway, it was love at first sight. She was his girl. They celebrated 65 years together March 31st 2021. Evelyn and Herbert were married March 31st 1956 in Winter Haven, Florida. Two years later they moved to Haines City and started setting up roots. Their first born was Brenda and three years later Phillip came along. Herbert told Evelyn; “I’ll take care of the money and you take care of the children” Evelyn did just that taking Brenda and Phillip to school functions, overnight stays at friends and more. On Sunday’s and Wednesday nights you would find the Hattaway family at Eastside Baptist Church with our church families where both taught Sunday School and Dad a deacon of the church. Evelyn kept taking care of her children even when the grandchildren began to come. She went from Mom to Nana. Nana took and picked up the grandchildren going to school. She helped them with homework and projects. She was very involved with each one. The Grandchildren enjoyed staying at Nana’s and Daddy Herb’s house because they would take them out to eat. Nana was the Best Mother and Grandmother to all of us and will be greatly missed. Evelyn is preceded in death by her parents, Felton and Jewell Ward and Sister, Sue Ward.
