Sidney Evans Jr. and Evelyn Maples Evans celebrate 60 years of marriage


Sidney Evans Jr. and Evelyn Maples Evans are celebrating 60 years of marriage. They were married June 28, 1959, at the First Methodist Church in Natchitoches by the Rev. George Pierce. They are pictured early in their marriage while they were working at the Natchitoches Enterprise newspaper office.

The couple raised six children and have 18 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. Maybe having so many children did (and still does) get to be a bit much at times, but few children can say they grew up in a home with as much love, support, fun times and even chaos as they did.

Thanks, Mom and Dad –

for loving God, for loving one another and for loving us-

yes, ALL of us.

We love you!
