 Having grown up in the Needmore community of western Montgomery County Tennessee, Marie and Roy moved to the Oakland community in northern Montgomery County in the early 1950s.  Roy’s love for the land led him and Marie into a career of farming.  In the early days you could find Marie out in the field driving a tractor and helping any way she could.  On other days, she would be preparing a grand lunch meal for Roy and his farm hands.

Marie took an active role in serving people in the church as an elder’s wife, Bible Class teacher, host for innumerable gift showers for newlyweds and parents to be.  She and Roy provided Sunday lunch for a host of preachers over the years. They made a great team in marriage for 68 years, faithfully serving their local congregations in a number of ways.

Marie’s happiest moments were when surrounded by her five children, their spouses, and her grandchildren.  She loved shopping for them and experiencing their joy when receiving the gifts that she had selected for them.

Survivors include her five children; Steve Burkhart and wife, Laura, Pam Baggett and her husband, Steve, Jim Burkhart, Ricky Burkhart and his wife, Carol, and Kim Lanning and her husband, Scott; Also surviving are his eight grandchildren; Jason Baggett and his wife, Desiree, Ashlie Burkhart, Ben Burkhart, Elizabeth Mobley and her husband, Kevin, Eric Burkhart, Caitlin Burkhart, Rachel Burkhart and Mikena Perkins, and eight great grandchildren.  Also surviving are her two brothers, Guy Evans, Jr. and his wife, Gertrude and Jim Evans and his wife, Pansy, her sister, Isabel Burkhart.
