Ella Mae Tevis, 79

RICHMOND — Ella Mae Tevis, 79, of Richmond, departed this life Wednesday, December 18, 2013, at Baptist Health-Richmond after a short illness.

She was born October 4, 1934, in Richmond, Kentucky, to the late Gholston Tevis and Nettie Doyle Tevis.

She is survived by: her son, John (Linda) Goodloe; her daughter, Alice (James) Lockett; her granddaughter, Carolyn Price; several grandchildren, including two grandsons, William (Shalyne) Lockett and DeAaron Ballew.

She also leaves: two sisters, Lee (Russell) Allen and JoAnn Clay; one brother, John (Ila) Tevis; and a host of additional grandchildren, nieces, nephews and close friends.

A celebration of Ella Mae’s life will be conducted 1 p.m. Friday, December 27, 2013, at Oldham, Roberts & Powell Funeral Home. Visitation will be from 11 a.m. until service time.
