Obituary of Evelyn A. Pratt

Evelyn Pratt, of Avon Park, Florida, passed away on October 17, 2020 in Liverpool, New York at the age of 98. She was born in Bombay, New York on March 16, 1922 to William & Mary Thornton Mitchell. She married Raymond Pratt in 1946, and they raised their daughter, Sandra, in Elyria, Ohio. After retirement they moved to Florida. Evelyn was a career woman and a community volunteer. She was trained as a hair stylist and owned her own salon, Cozy Corner. After her marriage to Ray, she made a career change and worked as a bookkeeper. She retired from Medalist All-American where she began as a bookkeeper and worked her way up to Controller. In her spare time she was a member of St. Clair Rebekah Lodge No. 207 where she held several leadership positions including President and Noble Grand. She was also an active member of Beta Sigma Phi where she served as president. She continued her community service after moving to Florida as a volunteer with Meals on Wheels. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, daughter, son-in-law, Richard James, her sisters, Edith Baker, Marion Phelps, & Imogene Patnode, her brothers, Robert & Orra Mitchell and Roy, Bert & Fred Elliott, and great-grandson, Peyton James. Evelyn is survived by her partner, Robert “Bob” Hess, grandchildren, Debbie Smith (Russell), David James (Lisa), and Dawn Hines (Dustin), and great-granddaughters, Elizabeth Matthews, Emmalee James and Madison Hines. We would like to thank Bob’s family the loving care they provided to Evelyn during her final days.
