Many in the Christian community are celebrating the life and legacy of Lois Evans.
Lois was the wife of Pastor Tony Evans, pastor at Oak Cliff Fellowship in Dallas, Texas. She passed away on the morning of Dec. 30 after battling a rare form of cancer.
Pastor Robert Morris of Gateway Church in Dallas responded to news of her death on Instagram writing, “Debbi and I are so sorry to hear this news about Lois. We are praying for supernatural peace and comfort for you, your children, and all of the Evans family.”
Gospel music artist Erica Campbell wrote, “I’m praying for you and your beautiful family. I’m so sorry for your loss. She was such a beautiful woman.”
“Well Done,” wrote Gospel superstar Kirk Franklin. “Still Hurts…Mamma Lo.”
I am also joining with those in remembering Lois Evans and how she was truly remarkable.
I remember the time I first met her in the summer of 2014. It was on the set of the faith-based film War Room.
Her daughter Priscilla Shirer was cast as the lead in the movie and Lois was there to support her.
I had just gotten married to a pastor and felt totally unprepared to be a “First Lady.” I figured if I’m in the same room with one of the most prominent pastors’ wives in the country, I should ask how this whole pastor’s wife thing works.
I approached her, introduced myself and asked her what I could expect in my newfound role. Without hesitation and with warmth and grace, she shared something that I will never forget.
