Obituary for Zettie Vivian Prim Evans of Carthage

Zettie Vivian Prim Evans, age 91, of Carthage, passed away Wednesday, July 13, 2022 at her home with her family beside her. 

A native of Yadkin County, she was a daughter of the late Jesse and Nina Poindexter Prim. Vivian moved to Moore County in 1957 and retired from J.P. Stevens after working 35 years. She was preceded in death by her husband Tildon Evans; brothers Carl Prim, Wayne Prim and Sam Prim; sister Connie Williams and a grandson Daniel Evans. 

She is survived by her sons T. Franklin Evans, Jr. and wife Debbie of Carthage, Dan Evans and wife Pam of Carthage; two grandchildren Lisa Neal and husband Ken of Carthage, and Jennifer Moore and husband Jon of Carthage; two great grandsons Jay and Avery Neal; and sisters Polly Smith of Carthage and Velma McLauchlan of Randleman.

Vivian was a true southern, Christian woman – full of beauty and grace. She was a kind, gentle soul who had the biggest heart, and was affectionately called “Miss Vivian” by so many that knew her. She loved her family very deeply and was extremely proud of her children and grandchildren. Vivian also loved quilting, gardening, watching Carolina Tarheel basketball games, and was well known for her handmade longleaf pine needle baskets.

Funeral services will be 2:00 PM Sunday at Eureka Presbyterian Church. Burial will follow in the church cemetery. The family will receive friends following the service in the fellowship hall. 

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to FirstHealth Hospice, 150 Applecross Road, Pinehurst, NC 28374.
