October 3, 1924 - February 14, 2021
Mary Ellen Guthrie Evers passed away peacefully on February 14, 2021. She was preceded in death by her husband, Leonard Evers, and four siblings, the Reverend Milton J. Guthrie, Sister Mary Anne Guthrie, Arline Fogos and Frank Guthrie. She is survived by her children, Edward Evers and Marie Muscari, granddaughters Teri Evers Gibson and Dana Marie Muscari, great-grandsons Stephen (Jessica) Durrett, Brandon Gibson and Joseph Gibson. She was so proud of her family and was very involved in each of their lives. A native Memphian, she was an active member of the Altar Guild at Little Flower Church. She was a proud graduate of St. Agnes High School. Mary Ellen was a strong woman of faith and a dedicated communicant of Holy Rosary Church, where she was a member of the choir. Mary Ellen was always one of the first parishioners to Saturday afternoon Mass, making sure she had time to say the Rosary. Cooking was her favorite pastime, and she shared the family’s generations of recipes to ensure they would be passed down. Every Sunday was always a time for gathering at her house for family meals. She was an avid football fan, rooting for Notre Dame and Green Bay Packers. She loved to laugh and make others laugh. She treated everyone she met as a dear friend and was always there to assist anyone who needed help. Mary Ellen will be missed every day. Her warm, contagious smile and laughter will always shine brightly in our hearts until that glorious day when we are reunited. Visitation will begin at 10:30 at Holy Rosary Church on February 26, followed by Mass at 11 and procession to Calvary Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials may be sent to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to those who so graciously cared for her in the past year, especially the staff at St. Clare and Comfort Keepers.
