Mrs. Clintea Moss Evans, 86, of Warrenton, departed this life on Sunday, April 28, at her residence. Funeral services were conducted at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 4, at Cooks Chapel Missionary Baptist Church by Pastor Tony Cozart. Burial followed in the church cemetery.
Mrs. Evans, daughter of the late Roy and Selma Cobb Moss, was born on Aug. 2, 1932, in the Warren Plains community of Warren County.
She accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized at Cooks Chapel Missionary Baptist Church.
Clintea was educated in Warren County public schools and, after graduation, began her professional career as an operator for American Telephone and Telegraph Company in New York City. She also pursued cosmetology training and worked as a hair stylist part-time. While living in New York, she met and married Louis R. Evans.
Clintea later returned to North Carolina to be near her aging parents. Shortly thereafter, she began working for the Warren County school system as an assistant in child nutrition services. She also reunited with her home church and remained a faithful member until her death. Clintea served in numerous capacities at Cooks Chapel over the years, and most recently was active in the Missionary Circle and Senior Choir.
Preceding her in death, in addition to her parents, were her beloved husband, Louis R. Evans, and her sister, Selma Louise Thornhill.
Those left to cherish her memory are two daughters, Quinnilla Moyer (Lee) of Durham and Louise Gregory of Warrenton; four grandchildren, Charlene Mangum (Dwight), Louis Ray Harrison (Tomesah), Nelson Harrison and Kemuel Moyer (Tonja); seven great-grandchildren, Alexis, Louis Ray II, Brian, Armand, Phoenix, Braylon and Booker; one brother, Leroy Moss (Gloria) of Henderson; special friends, Mrs. Esther Palmer and Mrs. Eva Mae Shaw; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
