It is with great sadness and much love that we say goodbye to our beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother Evelyn Mae Murray who passed away on February 9, 2020 at the age of 82 years, three days before her 83rd birthday.

Evelyn is survived by her daughters Yvonne Hulleman (Gary) and Ardelle Lowe; grandchildren Jennifer, Terence (Amanda), Justin (Sheila), Melissa, and Jeremy (Cheryl); great-grandchildren William, Amelia, Aurora, Ayden, Hayden, Ella, Tristin, and Kole; brother Alfred Horn (Delores); sister Lottie McGee; sister-in-law Doreen Horn; and numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews.

Evelyn was predeceased by her husband of 48 years Hal; parents Wilfred and Gladys; brother Clarence Horn; brother-in-law Ken McGee; mother- and father-in-law Elizabeth and John Murray; and numerous brothers- and sisters-in-law.

Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life will be held May long weekend 2020.

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.

Sorry, there are no details found...

Tribute wall - a place to share your memories and condolences

Most of the Memories I have are being in that 1979 Fleetwood Prowler trailer out at Pigeon lake every summer rain or shine. She helped me learn how to ride a 2 wheeler. And how to cross stitch.

She always made sure us kids came first whether that was food in our bellies or something to do.

She will forever live on in the memories we have, the photos we look back at, and the lessons she taught us we will teach our kids.
