Evelyn Gertrude Dubois 

Evelyn Gertrude Dubois, 83, passed away peacefully at her home in New Madrid on November 19, 2020. She was cared for by her daughter, Phyllis St.Mary and many other loving caretakers through an extended illness. 

In Matthews, MO, on April 30, 1937, Gertrude, the fifth child of eight, 

was born to John Sterling Nolen and Evelyn Miller Nolen. On February 14, 1953, in Marston, MO she was married to Jessie (Jack) Sullenger, who preceded her in death in May, 1977. She was later married to Alvin 

Dubois in Marston, MO. 

As a devout Christian and member of Evergreen Missionary Baptist Church in Marston, her church family was very dear to heart. Her easy nature touched many people through her garden bounty, home-cooked meals or beautiful flowers.
