Evon Rae Carter was born on November 3, 1957 , in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to the late Helen Lucille Rainey and Willie Byrd Carter, Sr.
She was raised in Miami, Florida, where she attended Miami Lakes High. There, she met Reginald Ivery, Sr., and had three children. In 1987, the two were united in Holy Matrimony and relocated to Gainesville, Florida.
During most of the years of Evon’s life, her line of work consisted of driving. Most of her jobs were transporting people, which she loved because she was able to meet different folks who didn’t mind her talking about God. She was a dedicated, go above and beyond, give all that I have type of woman. She was the glue that kept the family together. She was our angel of protection that prayed for us, even when we didn’t pray for ourselves.
A year ago, Evon was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer. Even through the hardships and challenges, she remained steadfast in her faith and belief of Jesus Christ. She was called home on Friday, June 18, 2021, while surrounded by her daughter and grandchildren.
She leaves to mourn her memories; her daughter, Amelia Davis (Daniel Davis, Sr.) of Gainesville, FL; her son, Quincey Ivery of Houston, TX; her son, Reginald Ivery, Jr., of Gainesville, FL; her grandchildren, Tabresha Blake, Daniel Davis, Jr., Caitlyn Davis, Kishon Mayes, Dariaunte Davis, Xavier Davis, Angel Davis, D’Angel Ivery, and Faith Ivery, all of Gainesville, FL; her great- grands, Kyire Davis, Jaxson Carter, Tyson Jones, and Isabella Davis, all of Gainesville, FL; her four sisters, Felicia Carter of Pompano Beach, FL, Carolyn Roberts (Kenneth Roberts) of Raleigh, NC, Estelle Carter of Davie, FL, and Sherry Patrick (Eugene Patrick) of Georgia; her six brothers, Sydney Green of Gainesville, FL, Cecil Greene of Miami, FL, Willie Carter, Jr., of Miami, FL, David Carter (Karen Carter) of Georgia, Sammy Carter of Orlando, FL, and Kelvin Carter (Natarsha Carter) of Georgia; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and family friends.
