Linda Charest

Such a sad and sudden loss for Reed, the children, grandchildren, in-laws and many relatives. Evelyn was tiny in stature, but had a strong work ethic and was mighty in character. She was always cheerful and willingly served her family, friends and community at every opportunity. Evelyn was devoted to Reed, proud of her children and grandchildren loyal to her many friends, faithful to God and the church she served for so many years. Music was a gift which she shared generously over many decades. Her death leaves a large void in many hearts and homes. Rest well sweet lady.
