Evonia Watt Stice

CHALYBEATE – Evonia Watt Stice, age 87, peacefully departed this life at her home with her family by her side on Friday, June 30, 2023. The Edmonson County native was born on June 9, 1936, to the late John W. and Nola Marie Watt. She was married to her devoted husband and best friend of sixty years, Jimmy D.

Evonia retired from Houchens Industries as a bookkeeper. She was saved as an 11-year-old girl at Pine Grove United Baptist Church and later joined Pleasant Union United Baptist Church, where she remained a member.  Evonia was a selfless person and cherished her family above all. She gained her greatest pleasure being “grandmom”, and thoroughly enjoyed her children’s and grandchildren’s activities and accomplishments.

She leaves to honor her memory— her daughters and caregivers, Terri Stice of Chalybeate and Kelli Brooks (Scott) of Chalybeate; four grandchildren, Alison Lile (Stephen) of Bowling Green, Natalie Stice of Brownsville, Nicholas Stice (Michelle) of Seymour, TN, and Caleb Brooks of Chalybeate; her great-grandchildren, Gracie, Jake, and Sophia Lile, and Stella Stice; along with many nieces and nephews.

Besides her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by her beloved son, Jeff Stice; and sisters, Doris Jean Flood, Jessie Johnson, and Cheyenne Hooser.

Interment will be in Pleasant Union Church Cemetery.
