Tommimae Evans Adelizzi died July 4, 2011 in Stillwater, Oklahoma. There will be a memorial later when her remains are buried in Ballew Springs Cemetery in Parker County Texas. Strode Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
She was born on July 31, 1917, near Mineral Wells, Texas in the farm home of her parents, Thomas Lanham and Maude Layne Evans. Tommimae graduated from Mineral Wells High School in 1934. She became a dental assistant under the direction of Dr. Cruthcher and later worked as a dental assistant at Camp Wolters Army Camp, where she met her future husband, Dr. Francis Adelizzi. They moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After they divorced, Tomi moved to the Dallas area in 1973 where she worked as an office manager. The City of Carrolton commended her for her many hours spent helping feed the hungry. In 2006, Tomi moved to Stillwater, Oklahoma, where she lived until her death. Tomi was baptized into the Catholic faith in 1944, and that faith remained a very important part of her life.
Preceding her in death were her parents, her 4 sisters, Nellie Norman, Lou Alice Kimbrough, Ava McCorkie, Rebecca Gude, and 2 brothers, Ray Evans and Jack Evans, and 1 niece, Patricia Sherman.
She is survived by nieces Ruby Nell Basler of Stillwater, Betty Wood of Austin, TX, Jackolin Vaughn, Sharon Moore, and Debra Novak of the Houston area, Andra Whitley of Hallestsville, Linda Buchanan Arlington TX, Mary Douglas of Kilgore, TX, Janie Holsapple of Sugarland, TX, and 1 nephew, Luther Norman of Bastrop, TX.
The family owes a deep gratitude to the Stillwater Catholic deacons, especially Dick Berberet, who visited her so faithfully every week. The family also thanks Judith Karman Hospice nurses for their care and are grateful for the care she received at the Weshaven Nursing Home and Sterling House in Stillwater.
