Evelyn Virginia Paugh Click for Condolences      Printable Version
1923 - 2021

Evelyn Virginia PaughEvelyn Virginia Paugh, 98, of Barboursville, WV went to be with the Lord on Sunday, June 20, 2021. She was born on May 31, 1923 in Salt Rock, WV, a daughter of the late Harry and Demma McKendree Morrison. She was a member of Enon Baptist Church in Salt Rock. Evelyn was raised in a loving home with her late sister, Glenna Ray, and her family values were passed on to her four children. She adored her family “with all of her heart” as she often said, and cared for all of them with genuine unconditional love. Never did someone leave her house hungry, with empty hands or with a less than full heart. She was a very devoted wife to the love of her life, her late husband of 53 years, Sterling M. Paugh. Together, with hard work, commitment and selfless dedication, they made a wonderful homebase for their children, grandchildren and great-children for decades. Evelyn was employed at the Huntington Publishing Company for 29 years where she made many long-lasting friendships. She will be deeply missed, but her joy for life will be remembered by all. Evelyn is survived by her children, Linda Jefferson of Huntington, WV, Mary Bevins (Tom) of Milton, WV, Connie Desmond (Dick) of Barboursville, WV and Eddie Paugh (Pamela) of Pittsburgh, PA. Additional survivors include special sisters-in-law, Madge Adkins (Vernon) and Pauline Adkins (Edward) all of Huntington, WV; grandchildren, Rodney Moehling of Huntington, WV, Scott Hensley (Sheila) of Raleigh, NC, Shannon Grabowski (Chuck) of Chapel Hill, NC, Eric Desmond of Huntington, WV, Summerson Springer (Bryan) of Charlotte, NC and Tyson Paugh (Amber) of Salt Rock, WV. She is also survived by 15 great-grandchildren; Preston and Palmer Moehling, Sterling, Stone and Sierra Hensley, Will, Jon, Anna and Owen Grabowski, Brycen, Finn, Bennett, Evie and Poppy Springer and Madison Boyd. A memorial service for family and friends will be held at Wallace Funeral Home in Barboursville, WV on Wednesday, June 23, 2021 at 11 a.m. with Pastor Kevin Lantz officiating. A viewing will be held one hour prior to the service. Burial will be in Enon Cemetery. Memorial donations may be sent to Hospice of Huntington, Emogene Dolin Jones Hospice House at 3100 Staunton Rd., Huntington, WV 25702. Arrangements are in the care of Wallace Funeral Home of Barboursville, WV. Pallbearers will be Rodney Moehling, Scott Hensley, Eric Desmond, Tyson Paugh, Preston Moehling and Palmer Moehling.

Connie I am so sorry to find out about the passing of your mom. It was very interesting to read her obituary. I didn’t know you had siblings but I definitely remember your dad from the grocery store days. Grandma thought he was the berries! Sending you hugs and prayers., Ann McMellon Newberry
