(nee HENRY)

On July 15, 2020, Evelyn was called home to be with her Heavenly Father. Mom was a spiritual person with strong faith and we take comfort in knowing she is now on her ultimate journey in life with Jesus.
Evelyn was born on October 27, 1944, oldest of nine children (Gilbert, Louise, Ben, Jeanette, Leonne, Camille, Simone and Mark.)
Leaving behind to cherish her incredible memory are her children, Christopher (Matthew, Joshua and Taylor), Gregory (Kari, Sydney, Chantelle and Thomas) and Jo-Ann (Emanuel, Breanna and Julien) Machado.
Mom loved to cook, garden and have a good laugh over coffee or wine. Evelyn had a quiet strength within her and always had a smile on her beautiful face, even when times were tough. She never complained and always looked to a better future. Our home was a sanctuary and even when we had so little, she never turned anyone away.
Mom was ever calm and soothed by her Catholic faith, accepting and celebrating the gifts in her life from God. Her character and temperament can best be shown through all the struggles she endured in her life and she had every right to cry and be mad during her battles with heart disease and cancer; instead she loved and lived every moment she was given. Neither hard times, nor illness would rob Evelyn of being who she was, always graceful until God called her home.
In accordance to mom's wishes, she has been cremated with her funeral service to be held at a later date.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • Ev, I , with Moochie, Nicky (our canine family members) almost daily shared stories, laughter and enjoyed the moment. My mother Freda and I were her co-members of a Catholic Woman's League. She was so genuine and a spiritual confidant to many including including me which are invaluable legacies. A close friend to may mom, Freda A - Posted by: Cathy Kozak (Friend) on: Jul 29, 2020

  • Evelyn was a strong spirit whose love of family was almost an automatic gesture. Only that her learned skills made it look easy. She was the kind of Woman who would hear other parents say “this kid is just too rambunctious. May as well remove him/ her from church because we’re not getting much from this.” And she would respond, “yeah, that kid is rambunctious, we should let him/ her stay longer in church until he/ she gets it!” Throughout my life with her, I found security in her constant no BS demeanor I would learn to adopt with my life lessons. She will be sadly missed. Her place is now with her Maker, and Mom and Dad. - Posted by: Marc Henry (Bro, Godchild) on: Jul 22, 2020

  • Chris, Greg, Jo-Ann - sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. My deepest condolences to you and your families. - Posted by: Heidi S (Westend Classmate) on: Jul 21, 2020

  • My sister Evelyn who was the oldest sibling in our family, always was a guiding light to our family. When mom was unavailable, she would babysit us and would usually bake our favourite cake (spice cake). Later on she became involved with the church and continued with her favourite activity, namely baking. She was involved in preparing fall suppers for the church. While her skills at the church will be missed, I am sure that she will be greatly welcomed in heaven. My condolences to her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. - Posted by: Louise Hintz (Sister) on: Jul 19, 2020

  • Your mom has always demonstrated those life skills: love, compassion and empathy to whomever she met. She is resting in peace, side by side with those who have welcomed her presence in heaven. May you all find strength during this difficult time and remember that she will forever guide you spiritually. - Posted by: simone lamoureux (sister) on: Jul 18, 2020
