Dr. Eva Lois Evans Death – Dead: Eva Evans Obituary, Cause of Death | 24th International President Dr. Eva L. Evans, has passed away. She died on July 21, 2020.

Dr. Eva Lois Evans cause of death is not released. We learned about her death through a post on social media.

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® South Central Region mourns the loss of the 24th International President Dr. Eva L. Evans, who passed away on Tuesday, July 21, 2020.

Dr. Evans was a distinguished educator who achieved many “firsts” both professionally and civically. She was a wonderful example of an Alpha Kappa Alpha woman with her sweet smile and sisterly spirit. Please continue to pray for Dr. Evans’ family and our sisterhood during this time of bereavement.


  1. Soror Eva Evans’ contributions of service with love, compassion, and care will live on in the memories of those lives she touched. She was a woman of stature but never so tall that she was not willing to reach back to help others. Her titles were about service, not status. Soror Eve will be missed by many. But we are consoled with grateful hearts for her service and her love for serving her great sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., and mankind. We love you Soror Eva.

  2. It was my pleasure to serve with Dr. Evans on the Junior League Advisory Board for 7 years, beginning in 1980.

    Don’t laugh — these were not the white-gloved “ladies” that you may think of when you conjure the Junior League. Most of them were career women with a lot of grit, who worked hard to start a free medical clinic for the elderly, and we joined with them to start the 60 Plus Legal Aid Clinic, in 1978, which is still operating 42 years later, providing free legal services to the elderly.

    So Eva has been my friend for over 40 years, and I am saddened to lose her.

    More recently, Eva served on the Board of the Thoman Foundation, which I chair, and contributed her vast knowledge to our work in supporting local educational programs for the disadvantaged.

    Eva was smart, connected, crafty, and concerned, and we shall miss her contributions to our work.

    I would love to send a note of condolence and praise to her family, but I do not know what family she has. So far as I know, she had no children of her own, though she had thousands of children in her long life: the students of the Lansing Public Schools she served so well for so many years.

    If you have a family contact to whom I could address a note of sympathy, on my own behalf, and on behalf of the Thoman Board, I would very much appreciate having it.

    My condolences to you and the members of Alpha Kappa Alpha, of which she often spoke with pride and love. We have all lost an extraordinary friend.

    • Thank you for such sweet and caring words regarding cousin Eva Lois. We loved her dearly and her family in Michigan, Mississippi and Tennessee will truly miss her. God bless!
