Cookie had a wonderful sense of humor. She was blessed with the gift of laughter and enjoyed making others laugh. She loved to cook, but more than cooking, she loved to eat.

As a result of her love and support, she was affectionately known as “Big Auntie.” Her loving, nurturing personality led her into a career in the healthcare profession.

She was formerly married to Earl Davis. Evelyn was a member of The Eastern Star. She was also a sponsor of the legendary “Sip Parties,” during which she earned her alias nickname of “Black Rose.” She was preceded in death by her mother Edna Adella Treadwell and sister, Gertrude Treadwell.
