Evelyn Palmyra Mitchell, third child of Charlotte Christian and John
Mitchell, was born at Gift of Regenbak, St. John on December 8,1911. Her
early schooling was at Bethany School, Cruz Bay, St. John.
At the age of 12 she moved to New York to live with her father and
completed her education there. She returned to St. Thomas in the mid 50's
and worked as a seamstress at Elverhoj. She then went to work for the
Department of Education at Washington School as a Food Service Worker
until her retirement. She was the last living sibling.
She had no children of her own but raised several of her great nieces &
nephews, especially Dave, Glenn Jr., and Danica. She was affectionately
called "Ms. Lee". Evelyn enjoyed visiting her family on St. John and
traveling, especially on cruises. Her greatest joy was sitting and talking,
especially reminiscing with her friends and family. She was a member of
All Saints Church.
She leaves behind to mourn, her husband, Carl Vanterpool, 2 nieces,
several great-nieces, great-nephews, stepsons, stepdaughters and many
close friends and relatives.

ill we gather at the river
iere bright angel feet have trod,
th its crystal tide forever
wing by the throne of God?

Frain
s, we'll gather at the river,
e beautiful, the beautiful river;
either with saints at the river
Lat flows by the throne of God.

i the margin of the river,
washing up its silver spray,
e will walk and worship ever,
11 the happy golden day.


Ere we reach the -
shining river,
lay we every burden down.
Grace our spirits will del ver,
And provide a robe and crown

At the shining of the river,
Mirror of the Saviour's face,
Saints whom death will never sever
Raise their songs of saving grace.

Soon we'll reach the shining river,
Soon our pilgrimage will cease,
Soon our happy hearts will quiver
With the melody of peace.


To Miss Lee ... You spent a short time on this universe. During those
ears, your experience and knowledge were shared with friends and all
aose you came in contact with. Your soft voice and smile will be missed.
Ve love you and always will, but God loves you best. Rest in Peace,
Your Friend, Cathy

Farewell faithful friend We now bid adieu to those joys and plea-
ures I've tasted with you. Our labor is overhand you are now gone, but
'ou leave me not friendless to struggle alone. If I be watchful and fearful,
esus will stay. I'll cleave to the Saviour and he will guide the way.
Your Loving Husband, Carl Vanterpool

Sixteen years ago we became good friends. Over the years our friend-
hip blossomed into a caring relationship. You are no longer here with me
n body. But you left behind wonderful memories that I will cherish. You
vere a true friend.
Ms. Marion Lynch-Esannason

God is everything. He is our strength each day, our comfort in distress
ind in weariness. He offers rest and peace in time of stress. May you rest
n peace.
Evadney Mulcare

To Auntie Evelyn... You have been a good parent to me when I was
ittle. You always were and always will be one to me. No matter where
,ou are, just remember I still have love and space in my heart for you. I
till care for you and miss-youi deeply. From the little girl you raised as
,our own daughter.
Danica A. Miller




Auntie Dearest... Over the years, we became very
W good friends. You were a great listener, therefore you
became my confidant. You never criticized my faults, you
took me as your own. Now you have left us to go to your
> heavenly Father. You deserve the peace you now share with
our Lord. Rest in Peace, Auntie Dearest, until we meet again. I
will miss you terribly.
Roxanne C. Williams-Miller

Farewell to you my loving Aunt... I will surely miss you, but I know
you are not suffering anymore. I know Jesus loved you more and that one
day all the believers will meet in the blessed abode. May you rest in
peace.
Your Loving Niece, Cynthia

To Our Great-Aunt... "Auntie", as you were called by all of us, you'll
surely be missed. Your tender smile and kindness were shown constantly
to us. You were someone we loved and respected. Your cheerful, "Hi
Sweetie", will always be remembered. Though you are no longer with us,
you'll remain forever in our hearts.
Miller Family
A good neighbor, devoted wife and good friend. She will be remem-
bered by her soft spoken words and her ever graceful walk. Miss Lee, as
she was affectionately known to her friends, loved children and always
had something to share with them. The late afternoon and early morning
conversations will be greatly missed. May she rest in Eternal Peace.
Myrtle Lang and Family



We appreciate your attendance at this memorial service.
Because of the circumstances related to Evelyn's passing,
the members of the family would like to retire by themselves
after this service.




Perhaps you sent a lovely card or sat quietly in a chair. Perhaps you
sent a floral arrangement. If so, we saw it there. Perhaps you spoke the
kindest words as any friends could say. Perhaps you were not there at all,
just thought of us that day. Whatever you did to console our heart, we
thank you so much whatever the part.
The Family
