Age 79, of Providence Point, formerly of Mt. Lebanon on Wednesday, January 15, 2020 after a prolonged illness. Born on December 15, 1940 in Fairmont, MN, Barb was the daughter of the late Lavere and Ruth Erickson. She married the late Stephen Charles Evans in 1963 and joined Steve as he embarked on a career with the US Navy becoming an officer and pilot. After moving to Norfolk, VA, the couple welcomed two children, Mark and Eric. As Steve transitioned to a commercial pilot, the couple settled in Pittsburgh, PA, where Barb lovingly raised her two children while supporting Steve. Not long after, they welcomed a third son, Christopher. Barb was a caring mother, engaged and energetic grandmother, and fast friend. She cherished her “game group” from the First Baptist Church in Dormont, PA. Along with her sons Mark, Eric and Christopher, Barb is survived by her nine grandchildren and brother, Scott Erickson. Burial will be private in the National Cemetery of The Alleghenies. All are welcome to attend a viewing on Monday, January 20, from 6 to 8pm, at Laughlin Cremation & Funeral Tributes 222 Washington Road, Mt. Lebanon. The Evans family wishes to thank the staff at Providence Point and those at St. Clair and St. Margaret Hospitals as well for their care and dedication.
