A dear friend of Grace Baptist Church,  Evelyn Blaylock Baugh of Stuart, VA passed away Friday, February 27, 2015.  I wanted to make you aware of a Graveside Service that is being held this Saturday at 11:00am at the Aarons Corner Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery in Lawsonville, NC (Lum Hall Road).   Please keep her family in prayer as they mourn her loss and travel this weekend to honor her life and celebrate her eternal reward in Heaven.

She was born January 5, 1936 in Patrick County, VA.  Evelyn was preceded in death by her parents, Jeremiah Wesley Blaylock and Frances Harris Blaylock; her husband, Charles Robert Baugh; four brothers, Fred, James, Paul and Ralph Blaylock; and one sister, Dora Alice Blaylock.

Evelyn was a graduate of Stuart High School.  She earned her Bachelor’s Degree from Radford College and her Master’s Degree from the University of Kentucky.  Evelyn was a dedicated educator.  She first taught at Patrick Springs Elementary School, then in Grundy, VA.  Afterward, Evelyn taught elementary education for more than thirty years in Lexington, Kentucky.  After she and her husband retired to Stuart, VA, Evelyn was instrumental in founding the Patrick County Adult Learning Center.  She spent the next several years working there in various capacities including that of tutor and computer instructor.

Evelyn was an avid reader and enjoyed a variety of hobbies.  She was an accomplished knitter, quilt maker and basket weaver.  Many of her friends and family have fond memories of sharing Evelyn’s homemade bread, pound cake, and fudge.
