Obituary for Evelyn Unkrich Myers

Evelyn U. Myers, of Madison, MS, peacefully passed away Wednesday, November 13, 2019, at 95 years of age.

She was a resident of Jackson, MS, from childhood, and of Madison, MS for the past 47 years. She developed a lifelong love of horses as a teenager, and along with her husband, Bruns M. Myers, Jr., was active for almost 50 years in raising and racing thoroughbred horses. She was also an avid golfer for many years.

She graduated from Central High School in Jackson in 1942, and then attended Belhaven College. In 1944, she married Bruns M. Myers, Jr. at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, AL. They were married for 67 years until his death, and had three children: Bruns M. Myers, III; Betty R. Myers; and, Randle S. Myers. Her oldest son, the Reverend Bruns M. Myers, III, was a quadriplegic due to a spinal column injury at age 19, but lived a long and fruitful life in large part due to the unceasing care and encouragement of his mother.

She was predeceased by her parents, Charles R. Unkrich and Betty Randle Unkrich, and by her beloved husband, daughter, and oldest son. She is survived by her youngest son, Randle; three grandchildren: Donovan Bruns Myers, Alexander Donovan Myers, and Philip Donovan Myers; and, two great-grandchildren: Castia Scarlette Myers, and Jeremy Wes Myers.

Burial will take place 2:30 pm Saturday, Nov. 23, 2019, at Natchez Trace Memorial Park in Ridgeland, MS.
