Following the death of Lois Evans, wife of Oak Cliff Fellowship Church pastor Tony Evans, a number of pastors and Christian celebrities took to social media to remember her life and impact. 

Lois Evans passed away on Dec. 30 at the age of 70 after battling a rare form of cancer, her family revealed on social media.

“The love of my life, Lois Irene Evans, transitioned from earth and watched her first sunrise from Heaven,” Tony Evans wrote.

“I had the privilege of holding her hand as she was lulled into eternity. Our four children surrounded her as well. As she slipped away, we told her how much we love her, how proud we are of her, and how thankful we are for the life she has lived.”

Christian artist Kirk Franklin, who attends Evans’ church, shared a photo of Lois on his Instagram page along with the caption, “Well Done. Still hurts…Mamma Lo.”

Franklin Graham, head of Samaritan’s Purse and son of evangelist Billy Graham, wrote on Twitter: “Our deepest sympathy to @DrTonyEvans and his family in the passing of his wife, Lois Irene Evans. I know they would appreciate our prayers during this time. ‘Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.’ (Psalm 116:15).”

On Facebook, filmmakers Stephen and Alex Kendrick urged their followers to keep Tony Evans and his daughter, Priscilla Shirer, and the rest of their family in their prayers.

“Please join with us in praying for Dr. Evans, Priscilla Shirer, and the entire family as they grieve and celebrate the life of Lois Evans,” they wrote.
