I’d like to take a moment to pass along condolences to the Rev. Joseph E. Lowery and his family on the passing of his wife Evelyn.
“My beloved Evelyn was a special woman, whose life was committed to service, especially around the issues of empowering women,” Joseph E. Lowery said in a statement Wednesday. “She was a wonderful mother and wife and I thank God that she didn’t suffer any pain and that I was blessed having her as my partner, my confidant and my best friend for close to 70 years. I will miss her each and every day, but as a man of faith, I know that she is with her God.”
May her family and friends find comfort and peace while celebrating her life together.
