 Sue Evans-Gilbert passed away peacefully on June 10, 2022 at Hospice of the Chesapeake in Pasadena, Maryland after suffering a stroke.

 Sue was born on February 23, 1927 in Morven, North Carolina.  She was predeceased by her parents, Luther and Mary Morris, her husband, Harry Evans, and her second husband, Roger Gilbert, her son, Rex Evans, sisters, Nan Jacobsen and Juanita Moody, brothers, Ben Morris and Sonny Morris, and son-in-law Thomas Dunham. 

 She is survived by her daughter, Karen Dunham, daughter-in-law, Lynn Evans, grandson, Jason Evans, great grandson, Ethan Evans, sisters, Adgie James and Dare Marsh, brother, Bo Morris, and  sisters-in-law Anne Morris and Syl Morris. Her Gilbert family includes children Beth and Barry Gilbert, Denice and Gary Conner, Bill and Linda Gilbert, Maryann and Tom Hutton, grandchildren Katie and Scott Bujac, Kellie and David Swears, Kasey and Jeff Forney; Sandra Smith and Stephen Conner; Sara and Chris Leonard and Kevin and Meghan Gilbert; Sheila Giaccone and Sherri Gurnon.  The Gilbert great grandchildren total 21.

 Sue and her husband Harry Evans lived in Arlington and then Fairfax, Virginia and Langley Park, Maryland, eventually settling in Annapolis, Maryland.  When Sue married Roger, they moved to Millsboro, Delaware.

 Sue began her career during World War II at Arlington Hall, a precursor to the National Security Agency, and she later worked for the National Housing Authority.  Next, she became a Resident Manager at several apartment developments, and she finished her working career at the University of Maryland Home Extension Service.

 Even though her family and friends are blessed that Sue lived to the age of 95, her laughter and love will be sorely missed.  The last several months she had been living at Queenstown Landing Assisted Living in Queenstown, MD.  She was very happy there, making lots of new friends (residents and staff) and participating in many activities. 


A funeral service will be held at 12:00 PM on Thursday, June 16, 2022 at the Watson Funeral Home, 211 S. Washington St., Millsboro, DE  19966, where friends may call from 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM for viewing and visitation.  Pastor Ed Kuhling will conduct the service.  Interment will be private at the Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery.
