Dorothy Riddle Evans went home to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on March 9, 2018. She was reunited with her husband of 62 years, J. Porter Evans Jr., and with cherished family and longtime friends. She was 91 years old. Dorothy was born on November 30, 1926 in Midway, KY. She was the daughter of Herman and Dollie Hanna Riddle and was the last living of 10 children. Dorothy was a devoted and loving mother of three children; Donna (Dan) Rueff, J. Porter “Jay” (Mary Duke) Evans, and Mark (Allison) Evans. She was Grandma Dot to her 6 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren. She was very proud of her family. Dorothy was a long-time member of Calvary Baptist Church. Dorothy and Porter were very faithful in their attendance and bringing up their family in the church. Dorothy loved spending time with family and always celebrated loved ones’ birthdays by sending a card, calling and singing Happy Birthday. She was a wonderful cook with a passion for recipes and will especially be remembered for her holiday treats – boiled custard, cream candy and caramels. She was an avid UK Basketball fan, always sporting her blue and white. We will never forget her tears of love each time we left from a visit with her. Her warm smile and southern charm will be missed. Visitation will be at 12 pm Friday, Mar. 16, 2018 at Kerr Brothers Funeral Home on Harrodsburg Road with funeral service at 2:30 pm. Burial will follow at Lexington Cemetery.
