      Dear Sonny,
      My brother Rick and I want to let you know that our mother passed away this day, Oct 25, 2012.
      She was 94 and she died in her home in Smithfield. I have attached a not-so-recent picture and
      the beginnings of an obituary. We have not yet determined when the service will be.

      Could you send this out to your Marshall email list?

      I hope you are doing well,
      Frances Aycock Kiker

      Evelyn Turner Aycock was born August 6, 1918, in Baltimore, MD.
      She passed away at her home in Smithfield on October 25, 2012 at the age of 94. She and her parents (the late Dewey Harris and Macie Marshall Turner moved back to North Carolina when she was very young, living in several towns in the western part of the state.

      After she retired, she and her husband took many trips around the USA and Canada and traveled to South Korea when her daughter and family were living there.

      Mrs. Aycock supported many civic organizations with her time and leadership. These include the Smithfield Woman?s Club, Johnston County Genealogical Society, Contact Telephone Ministry, and United Daughters of the Confederacy. She was a charter member of the Smith-Bryan Daughters of the American Revolution. She has been a member of the Centenary Methodist Church since 1947 and was member of the Sadie Spiers Circle there.
