In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband of 62 years, Kenneth F. Ralston, who passed on October 25, 2010; and one brother, William (Boots) Pearson.

Evelyn especially cherished her role as a homemaker, wife, mother, and grandmother. She also took great pride in decorating her home for holidays, and hosting family gatherings.

She was a member of the Chester First United Methodist Church.

Survivors include two sons, Timothy (Barbara) Ralston, and Thomas (Michelle) Ralston of Chester; one daughter, Tammy Jackson of Weirton; and seven cherished grandchildren, Travis and Carson Ralston, Callista and Conner Ralston, Brandyn and Cody Churchill, and Britney Jackson.

The family will gather for private graveside services at the Shadow Lawn Memory Gardens in Newell with Pastor Phil Dukes of the church officiating.
