Evelyn Kirby Obituary

An excellent wife who can find?
She is far more precious than jewels. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.” This was our mom. A devoted member of the Church of Christ

Evelyn Kirby

Born March 21, 1933

She was born in New Iberia Louisiana to Raoul and Annie Louvier Romero. She was the last remaining sibling of twelve children. She met our dad, Harold W. Kirby on March 28, 1950,who she later married when she was only 16 years of age.  They was married for 54 years when our dad passed away. Our dad had a favorite word of endearment for our mom, she was called "Bird."They immediately began their family of five children.

As we say our farewell, for now, we can hear our dad using his favorite word of endearment "Bird" what took you so long? Then one day Lord willing we will hear then both say "What took ya'll so long?" We love you mom!!!
