On the early morning of December 30, Pastor Tony Evans’ wife, Lois, passed away after battling cancer.
In a recent post from Facebook, the senior pastor of Oak Cliff Fellowship Church in Dallas, Texas Tony Evans wrote a statement of his wife’s passing.
He wrote, “Just before the sun came up this morning, the love of my life, Lois Irene Evans, transitioned from earth and watched her first sunrise from heaven.”
“I had the privilege of holding her hand as she was lulled into eternity. Our four children surrounded her as well. As she slipped away, we told her how much we love her, how proud we are of her, and how thankful we are for the life she has lived.”
It was October 25 this year when Dr. Tony announced on Instagram that chemotherapy and radiation were no longer options for Lois Evans’ condition. But nevertheless, they were still believing for God’s supernatural healing.
But regardless of her state, she still continued to attend church and worship events. She held on to God till her last breath.
Their daughter, Priscilla Shirer also wrote a farewell message to her mom on Instagram.
“Goodnight my beautiful, beloved Mommy. I’ll see you in the morning,” she said.
Their son Anthony Evans, Jr. also posted, “I love you forever Mommy.”
Dr. Tony is grateful to God for the answered prayers. It may not be the answer that everyone expected but his wife exceeded the doctors’ expectations.
“Thank you so much for praying for my wife and for my family. God answered our prayers this morning by relieving her of suffering. But the truth is, He has been answering our prayers all along. Lois lived beyond medical expectations, not once, but over and over again. God has been so kind to give us more time to make wonderful memories,” he said.
The Evans family also thanked those who supported them through prayers.
“Thank you for your continued prayers for our family as we grieve, and also for your patience as we finalize our plans to honor her life.”
