In Memoriam: Evelyn Deloris Coleman

Evelyn Deloris Coleman

Evelyn Deloris Coleman is the fifth daughter of Claude and Della Coleman and she is affectionately called “DD.”

A 67-year-old Air Force veteran, she attended J.N.Ervin and graduated from South Oak Cliff High School in 1973. She also graduated from Dallas Baptist University. She has demonstrated her love for this country, her family and her team, the Dallas Cowboys that is unmatched!

Her battle with stage four(4) colon cancer lifted her to Ancestor on Sunday night, August 28, less than 24 hours after her favorite Nana Irene Moore-head’s passing.

When her doctors in the Dallas VA ICUU told her they had done all theycould, she smiled and said, “I’m not giving up.”

She even asked the staff to leave her tv on the sports channel so that she could see the pre-season Cowboy game.

DD enjoyed the next pre-season game with the Cowboys and Seahawks.

Her family tried to make her last wish to travel to Africa and to surprise her with a call from her favorite player Dak Prescott. Although neither happened, DD was surrounded by family when she took her final breath.
