Evelyn Thomas Sagan, 61, passed away at 7:07am, January 9, 2009, at her home in Bakersville, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Evelyn was born July 7, 1947 in Richmond Heights, Missouri, to her surviving parents, Eugene and Vera Thomas. After graduating from the NC State University in 1969, Evelyn married her devoted husband of 39 years, Albert P. Sagan in 1969. Evelyn was employed at Bell South for 30 years in Raleigh and later Charlotte. She was the past Adjutant for Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary-Mitchell County, Chapter 58.

Also surviving are her two precious grandchildren Sam Furr and Charlie Sagan who provided her much joy and comfort; sister, Janet Tigue (Tim) and brother, Mark Thomas (Cindy); Mother-in-Law, Lucille Sagan; as well as a large extended family.
