Anna Damoulou (Diamond) Evans
Anna Damoulou (Diamond) Evans passed peacefully on Tuesday, June 28, 2016 after a lengthy journey with dementia. Born in West Seattle to Constantine and Calliope Damoulou (Diamond) on December 12, 1929, she lived her entire life in the greater Seattle area.
Anna was a graduate of Queen Anne High School, and attended Cornish School of the Arts and the University of Washington. She cultivated a life- long love of music at an early age, with study of piano and singing in various choral groups even into her early 80s. Anna met her future husband, Peter Evans, Jr., in the church choir. They went on to sing together for most of their married lives.
She was a traditional mother and wife until the early 1970s when she worked as an instructional aide in the Edmonds School District. She continued in that career for much of the remainder of her life, later teaching swimming to children with special needs.
Anna is survived by her husband of 62 years, Peter; her children Peter, Marianna and David, and their spouses; eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. In addition, she leaves many nieces and nephews and their children.
Anna had a natural curiosity, an inclusive and deep love for all people, especially those on the margins. She was dedicated to her parents, her sisters, and her own family, but her influence was much broader. She will be remembered for her gentle smile, the knowing twinkle in her eyes, her great cooking and her sense of style.
