Evelyn "Ebby" Widener

MARION, Va. / MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.

EVELYN “EBBY” WIDENER, age 87, passed away Wednesday, October 9, 2019 under the care of Heartland Hospice in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Ebby was the epitome of life to the fullest. She loved her work, but more importantly the people she would be able to help during her 25 years at Catos. Everyone Ebby came in contact with was a “little darling.” When she wasn’t working or spending time with family, she enjoyed her bowling league. Mrs. Widener was a wonderful lady in her community, and during her last 3 years, she was cared for and loved by many wonderful people who meant so much to her, and remain close to the family today. Dan and Cindy Newman were the best of neighbors to “Miss Ebby.” She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Ernest Lee Widener; parents, Glenn and Blanche Reedy; sister, Jewell Bach; and brother, Bill Reedy.

Ebby is survived by her daughters, Teresa Price and special friend, William Page of Abingdon, Va., and Pamela Dohrmann and husband, Richard of Myrtle Beach, S.C.; four special nieces and nephews; and many friends.

Funeral services will be held Monday, October 14, 2019 at 11 a.m. at Seaver-Brown Chapel with Spiritual Care Co-Ordinator at Heartland Hospice and close family friend, Reverend Rick Weidman officiating. A reception following the service will be held at Seaver-Brown. Burial in Grosses Creek Baptist Church Cemetery, Chilhowie, Va. will be private. The family will receive friends Monday from 10 a.m. until the time of service.

Flowers are appreciated or memorial donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, P.O. Box 96011, Washington, DC, 20090-6011.

Pam and Teresa, Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your families over the loss of your sweet mother, Ebby. She will be missed by so many. Ebbe was so full of herself and had a good time wherever she went. The associates and customers at Cato all loved her. I always looked forward to seeing her! Much love and prayers, Doug and Scarlett Mason

Teresa, Pam, so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you. I was privileged to know Ms. Ebby during my years working at Catos with you two. May God be with you.

Evelyn was a lifelong friend. She always had a smile, laughed often, and carried herself with such style. Thanks for the memories, Evelyn.

Beauty and elegance - she was such a lovely lady! I will fondly remember our lunches together 30 yrs ago when we both lived in Marion. I loved her dearly. My deepest condolences to the entire family.

Evelyn was such a sweet lady and will be missed by lots of people. She always had a smile and laughed a lot . It is still odd to go in Cato and not see Ebby . The family is in my thoughts and prayers.

My Aunt Abby was the kindest person I've ever known. Her gentle spirit touched the lives of everyone blessed to have known her. My memories of visiting her, Ernie, TT and Pammy are among my fondest from my childhood. She put her faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and rests with Him, awaiting us to join her. I look forward to that joyous reunion!
