Bettylou Evans of North Carolina, and formerly of Laurel, passed away on March 15, 2022 at Transitions Hospice in Raleigh, NC.  Born in Milford, she was the daughter of the late John and Mildred Millman. 

She proudly served her country in the United States Navy. Bettylou was retired from Vlasic Food and the Campbell Soup Company as their payroll clerk. She loved the American Legion and the Los Angles Rams. She was the State Commander for the American Legion in the early ‘90s, and President of the Ladies Auxiliary for the state of Delaware. She was the only lady in Delaware history to hold both positions in the state. Bettylou wrote the National American Legion Newspaper for nearly 15 years, and had lunch with Joe Biden on many different occasions at the American Legion. Mr. Biden spoke at her husband Master Sergeant Maurice Evans’ (Moe) event. 

She is survived by her sons, John Favor and Ronald Favor. She loved going to the beach and laying out in the sun, going to the casinos in Atlantic City, eating crabs at the Old Mill, going to the Godiva plant around Christmas time to get gifts, volunteering at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital, and traveling and meeting people from all over the world. Some of the family’s greatest memories were of her camping and crabbing, and going to the Super Bowl parties at the legion. She loved coaching her sons little league teams and being the official score keeper while her son was playing.
