He was educated in the public schools of that county and was graduated from William and Mary College.  In 1930 he and the former Margaret SMITH, of Natchez, Miss., were married. Shortly thereafter they moved to Ahoskie, where they continued to live throughout their 63 year marriage. They had two sons, Andre Jennings EVANS, of Virginia Beach, Va., and the late Merrill Jarvis EVANS, of Edenton.  EVANS led an active civic and political life. In 1940 he was elected to the North Carolina State Senate, where he served two terms. Later he served in the State House of Representatives. Throughout his legislative career, EVANS was known as ``The Gentleman from Hertford,'' an appellation which characterized hi life. In addition to his legislative representation, Merrill EVANS served from 1945 to 1949 as Highway Commissioner for the First District, overseeing the highway offices relocated in Ahoskie. Later, 1961-1965, Governor Terry Sanford selected him to serve as Chairman of the State Highway Commission, the highest appointive position in the state. While serving as Chairman, the first one having lived east of Raleigh, EVANS initiated and saw to completion various highway projects important to eastern North Carolina. Among them were a new bridge from Currituck County to the Outer Banks; the Knotts Island Ferry, which provides children a shorter route to their school; the bridge over Oregon Inlet; Highway 11, which permits direct access across the Roanoke River to the Greenville area; the bypass west of Ahoskie; Route 561, connecting northeastern North Carolina to the Piedmont; and a new highway connecting Ahoskie and Murfreesboro.  EVANS did not neglect local public office, having served as a member of the School Board and a Hertford County Commissioner. In semi-retirement from his business interests in real estate and life insurance, he served as Mayor of Ahoskie from 1973 to 1985, having been elected without opposition each term.  Among his civic works, he served as President of the Ahoskie Rotary Club and the Ahoskie Chamber of Commerce. EVANS always found time to serve as an active Baptist layman. He was on the Board of Deacons of the Ahoskie First Baptist Church, the Moderator of the West Chowan Baptist Association, Chairman of the Chowan College Board of Trustees, and a member of the Campbell University Board of Trustees. His proudest accomplishment was as the first teacher of the Ahoskie First Baptist Church Radio Class, where he taught weekly for 35 years.  Merrill Jennings EVANS is survived by his wife, Margaret Smith EVANS; a son, Andre Jennings EVANS, of Virginia Beach, Va.; two sisters, Iva E.

KNOTTS ISLAND MAN DIES IN HOUSE FIRE - Investigators searched for clues Friday into an early-morning house fire that claimed the life of a Knotts Island man.  Guy W. FLANNAGAN, 84, the sole occupant of an older model mobile home at 554 Knotts Island Road, died in a blaze that's believed to have started in a bedroom, according to Terry KING, assistant chief of the Knotts Island Volunteer Fire Department.  KING said a passing motorist called in the fire about 4:22 a.m. Friday. When firefighters from the Knotts Island VFD arrived, officials thought something was on fire behind the mobile home.  "The initial size-up (of the fire) was of heavy smoke and fire behind the trailer," KING said. "Those flames behind the trailer were actually coming out the rear window."  Firefighters did an initial search of the mobile home but didn't find anything, KING said. Approximately 20 minutes later however, when the fire was sufficiently under control, firefighters conducted a second search and found FLANNAGAN's body.  The body was transported to the state medical examiner's office in Greenville for an autopsy, KING said.  The State Bureau of Investigation is investigating the fire, which is routine when a fatality is involved, he said. In addition to the cause of the fire, investigators also hope to learn the identity of a man, possibly the same man who called in the fire, who helped them fight the blaze. "When I arrived there was a civilian manning a hose nozzle," KING said. "I took it from him and haven't seen him since. I'd like to just thank him, if we can find him. I am very appreciative of that person for staying long enough to help the first-in units."  KING said that the stranger indicated he was a firefighter somewhere else and displayed obviously skills and training.  "He took one of the hose lines and helped fight the fire until we could get outfitted to do an interior attack," KING said.  Currituck Sheriff Susan JOHNSON, who also visited the fire scene early Friday, said the anonymous helper may have been a Navy firefighter.  "Once he saw we had enough manpower there, he was gone," KING said.  Loann HUDKINS, a great-niece of FLANNAGAN's, described him as a gentle and somewhat reclusive man.  "He lived alone, took care of his yard, walked in the woods," HUDKINS said. "He was a bachelor, he never married. He's been retired a long, long time."  HUDKINS said she thought her great-uncle may have worked for some of the hunting clubs on the island when he was younger.  "He didn't go out in the community," she said. "He was pretty much a loner. But he planted a vegetable garden every year. He just planted his potatoes last week. He was very nice, kind."  (The Daily Advance - Saturday, March 26, 2005)

Sarah E. FORBES

Sarah E. FORBES, a well-known Newport News physician, was killed on Friday afternoon in a car crash in North Carolina.  David PEARSON, a spokesman for North Carolina Highway Patrol, said that FORBES crashed her vehicle into the rear end of a farm tractor around 4:45 p.m. Friday on U.S. 158 in Coinjock, nearly 20 miles north of Kitty Hawk, N.C.  PEARSON said that FORBES’ H2 Hummer was traveling around 55 mph and that the tractor may have been traveling around 20 mph.  She was pronounced dead at the scene, PEARSON said. FORBES was 85.  In 1958, FORBES was the first woman to start a private OB/GYN practice in the city of Newport News. She also was president of the Peninsula Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals for more than 42 years.  FORBES stepped down in 2004 after allegations of financial mismanagement at the agency.  FORBES was credited with helping to turn around the Peninsula SPCA from a small animal shelter to a bustling center with more than $1 million budget.  She was born in Currituck County, and moved to Newport News as young girl, according to her website. She was a 1945 graduate of Newport News High School.  FORBES completed her undergraduate studies at University of Rochester in New York and studied medicine at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond, the site says. She was the owner of Women’s Complete Health Care in Newport News. She also owned several properties in the Outer Banks, where friends said she enjoyed traveling.  FORBES was a prominent philanthropist on the Peninsula and donated to institutions including Christopher Newport University and the local Boys and Girls Club, friends say.  On Sunday, friends and professional colleagues on the Peninsula remembered FORBES as being dedicated to her patients and the area she lived in.  “I think of her as a very gracious lady,” said Anthony Santoro, president emeritus of Christopher Newport University. “She’d come out and spend some time with patients in the waiting room. (She) always was a person who was willing to help.”  One of SANTORO’s favorite memories of her was a time when he was hosting a dinner as president of CNU, and she showed up late, still wearing scrubs. “I didn’t want to miss the dinner, but someone had an emergency,” she told him.  In the fall, CNU’s new science building, Mary Brock Forbes Hall, will open, in part thanks to a donation by Sarah FORBES. The building is named in honor of FORBES’ mother.   “The entire CNU community is deeply saddened by the passing of Dr. Sarah FORBES. We were all truly blessed to have known her,” Lori JACOBS, a spokeswoman for the university said. “Dr. FORBES' commitment to Christopher Newport University and the remarkable young men and women on our campus cannot be overstated.”  Newport News Mayor McKINLEY Price, who is a dentist, said FORBES was respected by her peers in the medical community.  (WTKR.com - News Channel 3; Newport News, VA)

NEWPORT NEWS - The Virginia Peninsula and the medical profession lost an icon on Friday, June 24, 2011, when Dr. Sarah Elizabeth FORBES was killed in a tragic automobile accident. Dr. FORBES would first want to be remembered as a compassionate physician, who was dedicated to her patients.  Dr. FORBES' extraordinary talents led her to be a successful real estate developer with her hallmark achievement in Virginia being the Warwick Medical Center. Her vision for making real estate come alive was showcased in Nags Head and Currituck County, N.C., and at her famed Windmill Point Restaurant.   Born in Currituck County, she was the only child of Mary Brock and Dexter T. FORBES. She moved to the Virginia Peninsula in the early years of her childhood and resided in Newport News until her death. She had a special bond with her mother who worked as an educator, and took a second job selling encyclopedias and dictionaries to help put Sarah through medical school.   Dr. FORBES began her education in local schools, graduating from Newport News High School in 1945. After obtaining her bachelor's degree from the University of Rochester in New York, she studied medicine at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond. Her perseverance helped her overcome the challenges of being a woman in the field of medicine at a time when only one or two women were accepted into a medical school class.  Throughout her life, Dr. FORBES was a woman of many "firsts." Under the mentorship of Dr. Mason ANDREWS, she completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology, becoming Norfolk General's first female resident, and eventually chief resident of OB/GYN. In 1958, she became the first female physician to open a private OB/GYN practice in Newport News, in which she successfully and lovingly practiced until May of this year when she retired from medicine.  Dr. FORBES was the first woman to be selected to the board and the first female president of the Boys and Girls Club of the Peninsula, where she was honored as a member of the "Wall of Fame" - the first and only woman to be so honored in the club's 65 year history.  Sarah was often honored for her contributions to the organizations she served and the community she loved. Among her many awards were the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities' Humanitarian Award in 2007 and the Medallion Award, the highest recognition The Boys and Girls Club of America presents to volunteers.  Her concern for her patients, affection for animals, and love for her community led to her engagement in and support of many professional and community organizations. She served as president of the Virginia Peninsula Academy of Medicine, the Newport News Chapter of the American Cancer Society, the Newport News Medical Society, and the Peninsula Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.  Sarah was a philanthropist.  Her generosity has benefited many organizations, including The Family Planning Council, First Baptist Church of Newport News, The Peninsula SPCA, the Mariners' Museum, Riverside Hospital, and Christopher Newport University.  Her estate plan is designed to continue her legacy of caring and sharing.  There was no bigger supporter of CNU than Dr. FORBES. She recognized its impact on the Peninsula and the importance of its educational mission. Dr. FORBES provided the lead gift for a new science building at CNU, to be named for her mother Mary Brock Forbes. Additionally, Dr. FORBES' generosity will make a bell tower on CNU campus a reality and the bell will be that of the SS United States, which was donated to CNU by Dr. FORBES.  Dr. FORBES embraced the historical mission of the Mariners' Museum and its world class stature, to which she added, not only by her generosity, but by donating numerous memorabilia from the SS United States. Dr. FORBES had the vision to rescue and preserve many of the artifacts of the SS United States, proudly built at the Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company.  Dr. FORBES was a passionate animal lover, especially of her prized dogs. Her leadership role in helping the SPCA grow and flourish was something about which she was justly proud.  Pioneer, Physician and Philanthropist, a life well lived and one to be admired. She will be missed.  A memorial service to celebrate Dr. FORBES' life will be held at 3 p.m. Wednesday, June 29, at the Music and Theatre Hall at the Ferguson Center on the campus of CNU.  (The Daily Press - Newport News, VA)
