Eva Virginia Justis

March 26, 1937 ~ August 12, 2018 (age 81)
Eva Virginia Gentry Justis departed this life to live in Paradise with her Lord and Savior on Sunday, August 12, 2018, surrounded by her loving family. She had prepared for this journey all of her life and looked forward to crossing over Jordan.
She was born in Madison County, North Carolina on March 26, 1937 to Irvin and Olive Gentry. She was preceded in death by her parents; Irvin, Dennie and Olive Gentry. Her brothers: Junior, Woody, and Cecil Gentry; sister: Viola Bloyd, father and mother in-law: James Robert and Maggie Justis, sister-in-law: Joyce Chandler and brother-in-law: Robert "Bob" Justis.
She is survived by her loving and devoted husband, Billy D. Justis; sons: Tommy (Sue) Justis, Jerry Justis, Duane (Pam) Justis and daughter: Beth (Karl) Southern. Grandchildren: Julie (George) Ball, Dexter (Melanie) Justis, Libby (Brandon) Sullivan, Brittney (Brandon Ballinger) Justis, Dennie Justis, Karley (Mason Gavin) Southern and Andy Southern. Great grandchildren: Lucy, Nina, Blakely, Bonnie, James Thomas and Beau; sister-in-law: Martha Jo Potter, brother-in-law: Frank (Medra) Justis and many nieces, nephews and cousins that she loved dearly, and a host of friends.
To know Eva, was to know love. She showed her love to everyone she met. She opened her home and her heart to many people in their time of need. She was truly a cup of strength to all and set a wonderful example to her family and friends of how to live and love. She will be dearly missed but her legacy will live on through all the lives she has touched.
In lieu of flowers, her family would like for you to honor Eva's memory by showing an act of kindness to a suffering soul and showing the world what love looks and feels like.
The family would like to thank everyone for all the visits, calls, food and prayers that have been lifted for them: Dr. Vick, for her compassion the day that Eva announced she would not continue with hospital and doctor visits, that she was ready to meet Jesus; and Avalon Hospice for their love and support the last 38 days.
Eva's family will receive friends, Friday, August 17, 2018 from 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM at Mayes Mortuary.
Funeral services will follow at 8:00 PM with Rev. Paul Clevenger officiating.
Graveside and entombment services will be Saturday, August 18, 2018 at 11:00 AM at Hamblen Memory Gardens.
