Effie Evelyn Gaither Obituary

BEAVER DAM-Effie Evelyn Fulkerson Gaither, 87, died Tuesday March 19, 2024 at Beaver Dam Nursing  and Rehab.  Evelyn was born in Echols, Kentucky to the late John D. and Grace Darling Garrett Fulkerson. She was a retired Mine Account Executive for Peabody Coal Company Eastern Division and a member of Pond Run Baptist Church.  She was preceded in death by a son Paul Christopher Gaither.

In a word, Eve was selfless.  Having a true servant’s heart, throughout her whole life, she took care of so many around her, always putting others’ needs above her own. To her, there was no such thing as a stranger.  Eve loved the Lord and her Church, sharing the Word of God and nurturing souls as well as bodies.  Whenever her children or grandchildren brought a friend into her home, no matter what time of day or night, she always made sure they felt comfortable and welcomed, were well fed, and usually left with a mug of hot tea. Her laugh warmed everyone’s heart who heard it.  It truly will not be forgotten.

Survivors include her husband of sixty-six years, Gene Gaither; 2 sons-John Avery Gaither(Melissa) and Todd Gaither(Becky); a daughter-April Darling Schneider(Shaun); 7 grandchildren-Clay Gaither, Hilary Gaither, Hali Jo Simpson, Katie Sam Smith, Emily Catherine Duncan, Alex Christopher Gaither, Alexandria Reagan Schneider; 7 great grandchildren-KyLee Newcom, Kalix Alford, Collin Gaither, Keeley Gaither, Henry Simpson, Avery Smith, Jack Duncan.

Services are 12 Noon Saturday, March 23, 2024 at Pond Run Baptist Church in Echols, Kentucky with Bro. Larry Birkhead officiating.  Burial will follow in Pond Run Baptist Church Cemetery in Echols.  Visitation will be from 4-8PM Friday and from 9-11AM Saturday at the funeral home.  The Family requests expressions of sympathy take the form of contributions to Pond Run Cemetery Fund, c/o Shirley Barnes, 468 Chiggerville Lane, Beaver Dam, KY  42320.  Envelopes will be available at the funeral home.
