Evans Monument Company
Monuments and Headstones
We understand the importance of family, and we work to create unique memorials that are not only pleasing to the eye but that lovingly tell stories in stone. A properly designed monument or grave marker reflects something of the life, the personality and the contributions of the person for whom it was built. In our eyes, every person who has lived has value and deserves to be remembered with a beautiful monument.
There are numerous good reasons for pre-planning a monument purchase. Making memorial choices ahead of time, often as part of the estate planning process, can greatly ease burdens and allow for cost savings.
From standard to custom, Evans Monuments can create any size to meet your cemetery’s requirements.

Lettering, Cleaning, & Repairs
We offer monument cleaning and repair services. If a monument was damaged due to a storm or accident, we can repair it! Even if it has a large crack or a piece has broken off (please keep any broken pieces, we may be able to reattach them). If a monument is damaged while in the cemetery, due to human error, it may be covered by the cemetery’s insurance policy.
Anna Nicole Smith
“We preserve stories for all time in the creation of beautiful monuments. For Anna Nicole Smith, we crafted a gorgeous monument for a beautiful lady and her son. It tells the story of an extraordinary life, of timeless beauty and of their devotion to those whom they loved.
We were honored to have been selected to do this work.
“I was honored to do business with an honest company from my hometown. They handled the project with sensitivity and compassion, overcoming many obstacles to deliver a truly beautiful stone on time.”
– Larry Birkhead
The Anna Nicole Smith monument is made from black granite quarried in Asia. It measured 6 feet in length, 5 feet in width and 8 inches in thickness. Its total weight was just over 2 tons. Because of the weight it was necessary to ship it to the cemetery in the Bahamas by boat rather than by plane. The design of the monument was built around the beautifully detailed laser etchings of Miss Smith and her son, Daniel. The corner designs, the etchings and the touching words combined to create a beautiful monument for a beautiful lady.
This intricately carved monument, featuring a lion and shield commemorates the life of a young Marine officer. It speaks of his strength, courage, faith, and devotion to family and country. He had a wonderful probing mind. He thought deeply about matters of both the world and of his relationship with God. Many of his thoughts were expressed in his touching poetic writing. This unique monument has preserved his memory for the generations of his family that are to come.
The tragic death of Breonna Taylor touched the hearts and souls of people throughout the entire country. This monument preserves her memory and memorializes the effort to achieve racial equality. The Evans staff incorporated into the design of the monument the phrase, “Say her name”. These words are often repeated by her admirers to remind people of the enormous sacrifice she made.
Bailey Harris was a beautiful and caring young woman. She had dozens of close friends and was described as being “truly an angel here on earth”. Her monument was made from black granite quarried in India. Because of her affinity for butterflies, the top of her monument was constructed in the shape of a butterfly, complete with bright and vivid colors. The result was a stunning monument to match her bright outgoing personality and her wholesome beauty.
