Wynter Pitts Bio, Net Worth, Birthday & Age
Wynter Evans Pitts, the niece of Dr. Tony Evans and mother of actress Alena Pitts, died suddenly on Tuesday night.
Alena, who along with her aunt, Bible teacher Priscilla Shirer, played the role of Danielle Jordan in the hit film “War Room,” posted the shocking news on Instagram.
“On July 24, 2018, Jesus took my precious mother (@forgirlslikeyou) from this earth,” she said. “It happened within a few hours and it was so sudden. My heart hurts like never before. Comfort seems far away. Fear is extremely present. It still feels like a dream that I’ll soon wake up to. I will remember these thirty minutes.” The rest of my life and I will remember the pain I felt when I found it out. But the nurse repeated this sentence as I walked down the hallway of the hospital. And for some reason I couldn’t forget her Mum had gone, those words went on and still pounding in my head. “I’m going to tell you something I need, that you never forget, ok? You serve a great God. A great God. Never forget that. ”
Her post continued: “I am a great God. Obstacles are thrown at me, but my God is still there. He knows what he’s doing and he has a plan. I say this not out of the sheer will, but out of faith. At that moment, his plan may seem outrageous and I may not understand him. I continue to wonder why I chose him. But I am reminded that he is in control. Even when I cry and mourn, I can smile with joy because I will see her again. Even now, she throws a little wink at me. Please pray for my family as my three younger sisters and I have lost our mum and my father has lost his best friend. ”
Dr. Evans and several other family members also shared the shocking news on social media.
“My niece Wynter Evans Pitts (@forgirlslikeyou) died unexpectedly last night,” Evans wrote. Wynter, a beautiful mother of four girls and a devoted woman, loved her family with great commitment. Please keep her husband Jonathan, their four young daughters, and our entire family in your prayers. ”
The son of Dr. Evans, the gospel singer Anthony Evans, said: “(I am generally a very private person, but I am in shock, hurt me and would love your prayers …) Our beautiful Wynter … I can’t believe we were at my birthday party a few weeks ago and a few days ago FaceTiming from your new house … and now you are suddenly no longer here with us. Flying home felt forever and I still can’t see it clearly through my tears, sadness, anger, and confusion. The one thing I can think clearly enough is that I promise you that I will be there forever for your husband and I will be the best uncle for my 4 perfect nieces Sometimes Don’t understand God and don’t know how I’m going to recover from it, but I will try. I love you forever, Wynt. ”
Pitts, 38, was the founder of a ministry called “For Girls Like You” and a magazine of the same name. A few days before her death, she spoke at an event for girls called “Reel Girls Conference”.
Actress Candace Cameron Bure, a friend of Wynter’s, responded to her death in an Instagram post by saying: “I’m incredibly sad when I hear about the sudden death of my friend Wynter Pitts. She was a kind, loving and strong woman of God, and while I can trust that she will walk through the golden streets in heaven and sit at the feet of Jesus, my heart mourns to be such a faithful and incredible example of a divine woman, mother and wife and to take a friend for the time we spent together last month when she was in town. (My) Heart hurts so much and I pray for her husband Jonathan and their four daughters Alena, Kaitlyn, Cameron, and Olivia. @forgirlslikeyou @alenapitts she is yours. ”
Chrystal Evans Hurst, the sister of Priscilla Shirer, announced that a GoFundMe account had been set up to support Wynter’s husband Jonathan and their four daughters.
