Prominent Christian Pastors, Leaders Mourn Lois Evans’ Passing

by | Dec 31, 2019 | Woman

Early yesterday morning, Dec. 30, Lois Evans died at 70 years old. Although well-known as the wife of prominent pastor Dr. Tony Evans, Lois made an impact on her generation in her own right. And the mourning of prominent Christian leaders shows as much.

Dr. James Dobson and his wife, Shirley, released the following statement:

“We grieve today for Dr. Tony Evans at the passing of his beloved wife, Lois. This gracious lady will be remembered by millions of friends and admirers for her kind spirit, her warm smile and for her enormous contribution to the cause of Christ. Our prayers are with the entire Evans family, who have suffered yet another profound loss. May the God of all comfort embrace them in His love.”

Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse, wrote:

“Our deepest sympathy to @DrTonyEvans and his family in the passing of his wife, Lois Irene Evans. I know they would appreciate our prayers during this time. “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.” (Psalm 116:15)”

Pastor Robert Morris of Gateway Church wrote:

The Kendrick Brothers, creators of hit Christian films like War Room and Overcomer, wrote:

Pastor Jim Cymbala, pastor of the Brooklyn Tabernacle and author of Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire, wrote:

“Praying for the Evans & Shirer families as they mourn the passing of their wife, mother & grandmother, Lois. Lois’s legacy of fervent love for the Lord & for her family will live on in her children & grandchildren, the Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship and the body of Christ as a whole.”

Greg Laurie, evangelist and pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship, wrote:

@drtonyevans I remember our time with Lois and Tony and you and Deb in NYC years ago. Lois Evans was a lovely woman of God.”

Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, wrote:
