Evelyn Gerald Felts of Christiansburg, passed away on August 16, 2020 at Roanoke Memorial Hospital. She was preceded in death by her parents, Roy and Essie Gerald; and daughters, Karen and Virginia.

Evelyn retired after 53 years of service as an x-ray technician/Department Chief at Radford Community Hospital, later known as Carilion New River Valley Medical Center.

She is survived by her cousin, Kenneth Fleming of Wichita, Kansas; her number one sidekick, Merle Sutphin; as well as many, many dear friends in Radiology.

Evelyn was the most courageous person I ever knew. She rescued dogs, cats, and fed wild animals if they looked hungry. She helped many of her patients get through the scariest days of their lives – her kindness and friendship will be missed. I know that Jesus took her into His arms, because she had already gone through hell on earth.

Visitation will be held on Friday, August 21, 2020, from noon to 2 p.m. at Horne Funeral Home. Funeral Services will be held directly after in the Chapel, with Beaver Terry officiating. Interment will follow in Sunset Cemetery, Christiansburg.
