Evelyn Hoskins-Bryant graced this earth for eighty-three and
one-half years, born the youngest of eight children to Claborne
and Irene Tyler-Hoskins, July 20, 1937, LaGrange, AR. Later,
her family moved to Oak Forest Community, where she
attended Mt. Moriah Baptist Church and during her membership
there, she learned about Jesus and that she needed to receive
Him as her personal Savior. She confessed a hope in Jesus Christ
later. Evelyn attended Lee County public schools where she
completed the eleventh grade. During her senior year, she
relocated to St. Louis, MO where she completed her high school
education and received her diploma and a few years later, settled
in Los Angeles, CA. She was a trained and licensed beautician.
Los Angeles is the place where she called home for more than 50 years.
Evelyn was an outgoing, fun-loving and kind person who loved
her family and in her later years would express her love by
remembering and acknowledging her nieces and nephews
with a birthday card and/or phone call along with a love gift.
Both her parents and siblings preceded her in death. She
leaves to cherish her memories, a loving and dear nephew,
