Who are Evelyn Juanita Currie and Ruby Alline Bullock?

Evelyn Juanita Currie

Alline Bullock and Evelyn Juanita Currie are Tina Turner’s sisters. While the latter is her biological sister, the former is her half-sibling as a result of her mother’s relationship with Percy Lovelace.

According to Jukebugs, Evelyn was raised in Haywood County, Tennessee, but eventually relocated to Brownsville, Tennessee, to live with their grandmother Georgeanna Currie.

Four months before turning 20, Evelyn passed away on January 31, 1954. Margeret Currie, her cousin, and the Tennessee native were both injured in a car accident. She did not pass away on the spot like her cousin did, but she did suffer multiple injuries that led to her death.

In Nutbush, Haywood County, Tennessee, she was laid to rest in the Woodlawn M.B. Church Cemetery.
