Mallory Anne Evans, 15, a fun-loving, kind, endearing daughter, sister and aunt, loved life and loved everyone she met! She was received along with her mother, Jami Diane, by our Lord the morning of Thursday, Oct. 4, 2012. Funeral: 10 a.m. Wednesday at Holy Redeemer Catholic Parish Aledo, 16250 Old Weatherford Road, Aledo 76008. Interment: Annetta Cemetery. Prayer service: 6 p.m. Tuesday at Greenwood Funeral Home. Memorials: In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to Holy Redeemer Catholic Parish of Aledo. Mallory lived and cherished her faith every day! She was in the ninth grade and was homeschooled by her loving mother, Jami Diane Evans. She enjoyed playing all sports and was the life of the party no matter where she was or who she was with. Mallory simply adored her family and loved spending time with each one of them. She especially loved playing with her nephew, Connor, whom she called her "Little Sunshine"; sushi and yogurt dates with her sisters and conducting highs and lows conversations while at family dinners. Mallory loved singing, dancing, and being goofy in the car with her sister, Audrey. Mallory was a dreamer and often shared her aspirations and pure love of life with her sister, Emily. And she loved driving through the neighborhood on the golf cart with her brother, Jake, and her cousins. She loved her best friend, Carissa, dearly and shared many sleepovers and making home videos together. Fun playful times were also shared with her dear friends, Mckenzie and Annie. Mallory had a special gift for living life to the fullest. Mallory was the entertainer who made us all smile, the caretaker who reached out to us all and helped us all recognize simple joys in life. Mallory loved hugs! She would hug anyone! She always found the good in everything and in everyone, she was the sunshine in our lives and had such a strong conviction to our Heavenly Father in everything she did. Mallory brought love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness and faithfulness to those around her. And the one thing that we will all cherish and remember the most are the three simple words that she would always leave us with: "I love you," she would say. Well Mallory, We love you and celebrate with great gratitude your life with Christ! Mallory will be remembered by her family: father, Darryl; sisters, Emily and Audrey; brother, Jake; nephew, Connor; great- grandmothers, Ellen and Josephine; grandparents, Jim, Diane, Larry and Shirley; uncles, Philip, Scott and Mark; aunts, Michelle, Angie and Tracy; cousins, Parker, Pierce, Mia, Stellamae, Tristan, Ethan and Evan.

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.
Jami Diane Stavens Evans (1964 - 2012)
