Mary Evelyn (Huett) Cowart (93) passed away peacefully on July 17, 2022, at the Wuesthoff Brevard Hospice Center in Rockledge, Florida, surrounded by her family.

“Ebbie” was born April 9, 1929, to King David and Mary Roberta (Whitten) Huett in Center Hill, Florida. She graduated from Largo High School in 1947 and moved to Jacksonville, Florida. Ebbie met Joseph Allen Cowart, Jr., on a blind date to a Florida football game and they married in October 1950. After a few years in Pensacola, Florida, and Washington, D.C., they settled in her husband’s hometown of Cocoa, Florida. They raised four daughters and a son: Mary DeLys Hathcock, Kathryn Kim Paulk, Penny Lynn Lutz, Eugenia Lee Fadely, and Joseph Allen Cowart III. She was a beloved “Mimi” to ten grandchildren and fifteen great-grandchildren. Ebbie was predeceased by her parents, her son, and her only sister and closest life-long friend, Mary Jane (Huett) Bunton.

Ebbie dearly loved her family, her friends, and her church and enjoyed volunteering in various capacities in her community.
