The Obituary

Constance Beatrice Evans, the daughter of the late Lois L Patton and the late Harold Patton was born September 11, 1943 in Philadelphia and departed from us February 19, 2022.

Our dear mother known as “Miss Connie” was educated in the Philadelphia public school system.  Connie earned her high school diploma at Germantown High School and graduated in 1960. While at Germantown, she met her high school sweetheart Henry Cann. The couple married straight out of high school while carrying their first son, Robert. Three years later they gave birth to twins, Christopher and Christine. Several years later the couple separated, sending Connie on her life journey.

Connie continued her education and earned her Associates’ Degree at Temple University. She gained employment while attending Temple working in the (ISR) Department Survey Research.  She again furthered her education, earning certification in Stenography.  It was during this time that she met Arthur Evans.  The two fell in love and later married.  The family moved to Mount Airy where they continued to build their lives together - Connie as a skilled worker at Temple and Arthur working in electronics for a major corporation.

Life took another turn and Arthur and Connie decided to part ways after several years, which made her even that much stronger.  She attended a program, earning certification as a “Medical Records Clerk” at American Business School (ABS) where she secured part-time employment in the evenings.  

Connie was baptized as an adult and attended the Reformation Lutheran Church.  A loyal servant of the Lord, she was asked to start an Evangelism committee, and also served as a member of the Altar Guild.

Connie was a hard-working, loving, and caring mother.  While she was very stern (and we mean stern - she wasn’t slow at grabbing “that belt” to keep her children in line) she did her very best to raise her three children. Additionally, she was a loving daughter. She moved her mother to Limerick after she retired and the passing of her father in 1999. They both found a new Church home at Second Baptist Church in Limerick, PA. Connie continued to care for her mother until her passing in 2017 at the age of 99. She then decided to move back to Philadelphia to be closer to her children and family and took residency in Chestnut Hill.   She remained a thoughtful and loving mother and grandmother until her passing. 

Connie leaves behind her two sons Robert (“Rob”) and Christopher (“Krick”) and her daughter Christine (“Tina”) and her two grandsons Anthony and Aaryn, her two sister cousins Faith Powell and Karen Epps, three sister-in-law Essie Spriddle, Mary Dixon, Cathy Friend, one brother-in-law George Cann and a host of friends and the rest of her family.
