Evelyn Louise Horton, 82, of Holly Pond, Alabama, entered into the arms of her loving Father on July 28, 2022. She was born to Sherman King and Irene Pearl Harris Jones on August 23, 1939, in Cullman County, Alabama.
Ms. Horton was a devoted member of Center Point Baptist Church and she enjoyed reading and crocheting. Evelyn devoted around twenty years of her life to the children of Holly Pond School.
