Diana (Perrini) Evans

October 15, 1938 ~ June 3, 2022 (age 83)


Diana (Perrini) Evans, 83, of Columbus, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family on June 3, 2022. Holy Family alumna, owner and co-founder of Evans Carpet Junkyard, Inc., which she built with her late husband of 55 years, Larry, and their children.
Diana had a larger than life Italian personality and never met a stranger. Her selflessness was unparalleled, whether raising her nine children or her care and generosity to the less fortunate. Her devout Catholic faith, her husband, children, and grandchildren defined her. She was most content when spending time with her family at the beach, sporting events, or watching fireworks on the 4th of July. Her strong, unwavering Catholic faith and devotion to our Lord was the most important legacy she passed on to her family. Member of Saint Brendan the Navigator Catholic Church for 47 years.
Preceded in death by husband, Larry, parents Ettore & Christina Perrini, in-laws, Jack and Betty Evans. Survived by children, caregiver, and daughter, Jackie (Erik) Naille, Craig (Connie) Evans, Cheryl (Tom) Pitt, Michael (Lisa) Evans, Linda (Mike) Paullus, Karen (Lou) Griffith, Lisa (Don) Woosley, Annie (Ray) Heston, Anthony Evans, grandchildren Diana (Kris) Campbell, Phillip Pitt, Nick, Andrew, Vince (Grace), Luke (Abby), Dominic, Maria, and Angelo Evans, Abby (Matt) Porter, Ashley (Michael) Bailey, Allie (Doug) Siegesmund, Grant and Peter Griffith, Evan, Michael, and Lydia Woosley, Ruthie & Jack Robert “Larry” Heston, 14 great-grandchildren, sister, Gloria Melfi (Destin, Fl), Delores Fawbush (Hilliard, Ohio), and Elaine (Willie) Neumann (Hilliard, Ohio). Many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Friends may call 2-7 p.m. Friday at the Egan-Ryan Funeral Home Northwest Chapel 4661 Kenny Rd. Funeral Mass will be held 10:30 a.m. Saturday at St. Brendan The Navigator Catholic Church 4475 Dublin Rd. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Diana’s name to Holy Family Soup Kitchen, 57 S.
