Last updated 5/2/2019 at Noon
Evelyn Duncan, 74, of Bridge City went to be with her Lord, Monday, April 29, 2019. She was born on January 10, 1945, in Hornbeck, LA. She loved her family and is survived by her loving husband of 44 years, Dwayne Duncan. They met at a party in Orange, TX which they quickly realized was all a set up to introduce them. They dated for sixth months and were married on March 22, 1975.
She was preceded in her death by her Mother Emma Pearl Davis, sister Nancy Merrell, and granddaughter Ella Duncan. She is survived by her husband Dwayne Duncan, daughter Jenny Duncan, son Wesley Duncan and wife Julie, sister Tracy Davis, niece Marlena Merrell and grandchildren, Audrey and Ethan Duncan.
She enjoyed reading a good book, playing on her computer and eating out. She was always ready for an adventure loving to Jeep to the tops of the mountains in Colorado or taking long drives to see the countryside, always telling Dwayne how to drive. Mostly she loved all kids, relentlessly fighting for their rights as a teacher, Special Education Director, Sunday School Teacher, and CASA advocate.
Her celebration of life will be held at St. Paul United Methodist Church in Bridge City at 3:30 pm on Saturday, May 4th. The service will be preceded by a visitation at 3:00 pm also at the church.
In lieu of flowers, please bring your favorite children's book to Mrs. Duncan's service to be donated in honor of her love of education.
