Lynch Evans, homemaker Gladys Lingo Lynch Evans, 90, of Bethlhm/Pal,/rod Reli0b6th Beach, a Sussex County sea cap- tain's daughter who had the world as her oyster, found her personal pearl in Georgetown, married him and began a 70-year voyage as a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, died -Friday, June 12, 1998, at her home. The daughter of John W. Lingo and his wife, Anna W. (Lank) Lingo, Mrs. Evans was born in Philadelphia and grew up on Stat- en Island, N.Y., as. her father sailed the world for Standard Oil Co. After his death, she moved to Georgetown in time to enter Georgetown High School and to meet Homer W. Lynch. Upon her graduation from Fairfax Hall in Waynesboro, Va., the couple was married in 1928. After Mr. Lynch graduated from the Law School of the University of Virginia and be- came a lawyer in New York City, the couple settled on Staten Is- land, where they raised two daughters. Mr. Lynch died in 1968, and several years later, Mrs. Lynch married John W. Evans, a Staten Island businessman, and moved with him to Bethlehem. He died in 1996. Born in an era when a woman's work was in the home, Mrs. Evans was true to her time. A woman who was preparing elaborate meals single-handedly well until her 80s, she found time for membership in the King's Daughters and Christ Episcopal Church on Staten Island, but never to the neglect of her per- petually hungry family. Lavishing love as well as suste- nance, in her later years, Mrs. Evans regaled her grandchildren with tales of the old days when the railroad from Philadelphia ran straight down the middle" of Re- hoboth Avenue and on visits to her Lank grandparents' farm at Cool Spring, her grandfather would meet her at the station in a horse and buggy. Aside from the story about a ring lost at the farm, which was found and returned 30 years later, a favorite tale was the time her mother put her on the train with her pet kitten at Philadelphia but forgot to tell the conductor to put her off at Cool Spring. Fortunately, her mother realized her lapse and after a series of fran- tic phone calls, word was relayed to the conductor, a man Mrs. Evans vividly recalled kneeling next to her seat and asking, "Are you the little girl with the kitty?" Then there was the time she stepped on a rusty pitchfork at the farm. With infection raging in her leg, she rallied just in time to avoid an amputation and the pitchfork remained a treasured souvenir for the rest of her life. Mrs. Evans is survived by her daughters, Joan L. Thomas of New York City and Judith L. DeAngelis of Newark; five grand- children, David F. Thomas of New York City, Andrew L. Thomas of Lewes, Denise D. Hyde of Rehoboth Beach, Lauren DeAngelis of San Francisco, and Christopher L. DeAngelis of Newark; and four great-grandchil- dren.  .
