Diane A. Evans

June 21, 1960 ~ November 10, 2020

Family and friends of Diane Andrea Evans mark her passing at Lawnwood Regional Medical Center, November 10, 2020. Diane was born at Fort Pierce Memorial Hospital, June 21,1960, to parents Frank Douglas Sherwood Evans (1931–2017) and Alice Josephine Thomas Evans (1932–2012). Diane’s stepmother was Hedvig Tetens Nielsen Evans. Diane’s maternal grandparents were William and Helen M. Thomas of Rome, Georgia, and later Orlando, Florida. Diane’s paternal grandparents were Charles and Grace Willy Evans, originally from England, and then Canada, before settling in Orlando.

Diane graduated from Fort Pierce High School and studied at Indian River Community College (now Indian River State College). Diane, an accomplished watercolorist, loved the natural environment and produced many watercolor landscape paintings featuring the local beaches, waterways, and parks. Diane’s interests and talents also included fiber arts; surfing; native American artifacts, costumes, and lore; crafts; sailboats; wildlife and environmental conservation; as well as appreciation of traditional, folk, blues, and rock music.

Diane—youngest of four children—is survived by family: Sister Denise A. Evans Glass (Jerry); brothers Douglas Alan Evans (Susan) and Donald Anthony Evans; nephew Aaron Glass (Bridget); niece Christina Glass; and cousins Cheryl Evans Groothouse (Glen), Phillip Scott Evans (Lenita), and Peyton Evans. Dear friends near and far are longtime neighbors Kenneth and Kurt Unsell; onetime schoolmate Suzanne M. Blake Hooten (Gibson); Phillip Osteen; neighbors Lilly Gerwan (Mike); as well as others too numerous to mention. Diane leaves family and friends with precious memories of a uniquely gentle, loving soul.

    • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

    • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
