The family would like to extend a special thank you to the wonderful staff at the Good Samaritan Southgate Care Facility, Unit 3C who cared so much for our mother during her 10+ years of living there.
As an expression of sympathy, memorial contributions may be made in honor of Evelyn’s name to the Alzheimer Society AB/NWT. Donations can be made online at Alzheimer.ca.
Evelyn worked as a telephone operator for over 35 years in Manitoba and Edmonton. She enjoyed quilting, curling, needlepoint, playing BINGO, country music, spending time at their trailer, and chaperoning and fundraising for her daughters. Hal and herself hosted epic Fish Frys and great singalongs at their fire pit at the trailer. She enjoyed watching her grandchildren in their many competitions, also working and supporting them in their fundraising events. We are all going to miss this great and wonderful woman.
