Obituary for Leila Farrey Evans

Leila Farrey (“Lee”) Evans, 79, of Johns Creek died Tuesday, April 30, following an extended illness. Lee grew up in Miami Beach, Florida. She graduated from the University of Georgia Business School with a B.B.A. in retailing and was a proud member of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority. She spent several years working as a business professional until meeting and marrying her husband, Bill Evans, and starting a family. Lee and Bill went on to found Sound Video Corporation in 1978. She served as the bookkeeper until the business was sold upon Bill’s passing in 2013. Throughout her life, Lee lovingly devoted countless hours shuttling her sons to and from practices, games, matches, and other activities and events, volunteering at their schools, and supporting, teaching, and encouraging them. Her favorite topics of conversation were her love and gratitude for family and friends. Her relationships with her grandchildren, grandnieces, and grandnephews brought her special joy. Lee is preceded in death by her husband Bill and brother, Frank Farrey, and is survived by her son Michael; her son David and daughter-in-law Sarah; her grandchildren Harrison and Palmer; her brother Bud Farrey and sister-in-law Maria; and her beloved nieces, nephews, grandnieces, and grandnephews.
