Born August 24, 1922 to the late Jasper Diaz and Lovie Strickland Bryant, she was a lifelong resident of Pierce County.  She was a housewife and was always happiest when she had all of her family around her. She was a loving mother and grandmother, and was a wonderful cook, loved to work in her yard and mowing her grass, and loved cleaning her house. She was a member of First Baptist Church of Blackshear.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Jasper Feldon Tyre; a son, Hal Tyre; her sister, Annie Pearl Callahan; and her brothers, Ernest Bryant, Diaz Bryant, Jeff Bryant, Robert Bryant, and Ancil Bryant.

A funeral service will take place Sunday (3/4/18) at 3 PM in the chapel of Hart Funeral Home. Burial will follow in the Blackshear City Cemetery.

Having gone through this experience recently, I know you and Family are immersed in sorrow. Keep in mind Aunt Eva has only gone to prepare a place for you. She continues to watch over you and tries to comfort you in time of need. After all that is what Mothers do, is it not. Wipe the tears from your eyes and look toward Heaven each day knowing one day you will all be united again. Until then you only need to remember she is with you always!

I am very sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you in this difficult time. I hope you may find comfort at Revelation 21:4, “And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” We can look forward to the time when God will take away all reasons for distress and he even gives us a hope of a resurrection. (Acts 24:15) If you’d like to learn more about this beautiful hope, feel free to visit JW.org.
