Besides her husband, Mrs. Wasson is survived by three daughters, Mrs. Clarence Hollifield of Ypsilanti, Brenda J. Robinson and Barbara G. Robinson, both at home; one son, Paul E. Wasson Jr., at home and a step-daughter, Mrs. Michael McKivens of Ann Arbor.

Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. Thursday from the Metropolitan Baptist Church in Ypsilanti. Burial will be in United Memorial Gardens.

Friends have established the Evelyn Marie Wasson Memorial Fund for the benefit of her children. Contributions may be made to Thomas Dickinson of the Ann Arbor Trust Co.
