Waynesville- Evelyn Louise Goodson Wilson, a wonderful sister and a precious lady, age 73, passed away Tuesday, May 19, 2020.

Evelyn was born October 29,1946 to the late Ray and Eva Goodson. She was a lifelong resident of Haywood County and retired from Dayco Corporation with 30 years of dedicated service. She had also been employed with Haywood Lodge in Waynesville.  During the summer season she was always busy canning and she delighted everyone with her delicious home-baked goodies.  Evelyn enjoyed playing bingo with friends and she was a joy to everyone who knew her.  She truly had a kind and loving heart and she cared about all animals. Her family was the most important part of her life and Evelyn loved each of them deeply. Her memory will be cherished forever.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her daughter, Susie Downs; a son, Danny Downs; and a brother, Charles Goodson.

Left to cherish her memory are her sisters, Joyce Hughes and husband, Arlie of Clyde and Cathy Reece of Waynesville; a brother, Robert Goodson of Waynesville; a daughter-in-law, Viv Land of Clyde; special nieces, Brandy Pilkington and Beth Hill; also several other nieces and nephews and a very special great-nephew, Carsyn Mathis.

A service of remembrance to honor Evelyn’s life will be held at a later date. The family will be at the home of Joyce Hughes, 61 Camelot Drive, Clyde, NC 28721.

Memorials may be made to the American Cancer Society, 1901 Brunswick Avenue, Suite 100, Charlotte, NC 28207 and SARGES Animal Rescue Foundation, 256 Industrial Park Drive, Suite B, Waynesville, NC 28786.
