On July 4, 1927, as the nation celebrated with parades, picnics and fireworks, God blessed Ambrose and Bessie Beck of Thomasville, NC with Laura Evelyn who became the latest addition to a line of thirteen other brothers and sisters. Throughout her life, she found great joy in knowing that the whole country was celebrating her birthday with her.
His parents raised these fourteen children on a modestly sized subsistence farm in Davidson County. On this good land, the family worked together to plant and harvest almost everything they ate. During the years of the Great Depression, by most 20th-century standards, they were poor…but they didn’t know it. With productive vegetable fields and orchards providing wonderful varieties of fruit, the family found joy in hard work, serious play and joyful worship with thanksgiving in the little Dutch Reformed Church just down the street. farm hill. Evelyn told her children she couldn’t remember a Sunday because she grew up when her father didn’t sing in the choir. Like many other people of that time, the local church was the focal point of their social life. And, they loved him very much. For the past few years, we’ve heard Evelyn and her only remaining sister, Pearl (now with the Lord), reminisce and say, “You know, maybe we were poor…but I wouldn’t take a million dollars for the way. from which we were raised!”
For Evelyn, the many blessings of the Lord did not stop there. They went better than she could ask or imagine when her path crossed that of a courteous young man with dark, wavy hair recently returned from service at the Pacific Theater of World War II, Emmett Marion. Their sixty-nine-year storybook journey through life together resulted in legendary inspiration for their children and grandchildren as well as their great-grandchildren.
Evelyn Marion is survived by her two children, Stephen Marion (Patty) and Emily Smith (Dan Morris). Also by seven grandchildren, Janet Helms, Michael Marion, Michael Paris, Alex Anderson, Amanda Moore, Daniel Moore, Kathryn Poole and nine great-grandchildren. An important member of Evelyn’s family is her “special daughter” and beloved friend, Janet (Jinki) Mauldin.
