Copeland Funeral Service

Ask a family we have served… ™



Evelyn Blanche Koth, 75, gently passed from this world on Jan 4, 2021 in the company of loved ones in her home in Beaufort, SC, less than 10 miles from where she drew her first breath on Parris Island in the Naval Hospital. She was eternally her daddy’s girl, a daughter of the south, and a child of spring, wearing its bright florals and dusting her cheeks with its pinks. Her favorite color was yellow, matching the daffodils that greeted her at birth.

Other than her family, Evelyn loved these things above all else: God, cooking, sewing, and people. She showed her love through food. Entering her home, her children, family, and friends were swept up in the aroma of macaroni and cheese, made from scratch bread, fried chicken, butter beans, sweet potatoes, stewed okra and tomatoes, and the rich taste of pound cake. With the support of her quilt guild and sewing group, she also expressed her affection and creativity through gorgeous quilts sent across the country to those she loved.

A graveside service will be held at 2 o’clock Friday afternoon, January 8, 2021, in Evergreen Cemetery on Bladen Street, Beaufort.

Sarah, Calhoun, Billy, Marshall, and Daniel, you and your families are in my thoughts and prayers. Evelyn was so proud of her children and loved you all very much. I wish you comfort and peace during this difficult time.

    Evelyn was a ray of sunshine. I am so glad I was able to take care of her as a part of the medical team where she was receiving care. She always looked beautiful. Her lips were always red with lipstick which accompanied a huge smile to go along with it!!
    I will miss her, and I am so glad I was able to have her in my life for the last few months. I only wish it could have been longer.

    I lost a friend, fellow grandmother and quilter. Evelyn was a true Southern Lady. She loved her family, cooking and telling stories. Being from New York, I had never met someone like Evelyn. Her voice was so sweet to listen to. I will pray for her and her family. Remember the happy times because I will.
