April 23, 1928 - February 21, 2020

Evelyn was born and raised in Winnipeg, attending General Byng and General Steele schools. She was an Eatons employee for over 40 years (often riding her bike to work when she lived in Fort Garry.) Evelyn volunteered at the Manitoba Theatre Centre and Park Manor Nursing Home for many years. Her favourite pastimes were gardening, sewing (including millinery) and baking which everyone enjoyed - once driving to Kenora with 14 tins of baking for her family.
In 2015, she relocated to Kenora to be closer to family, moving into Pinecrest Home for the Aged, where she made many friends with residents and staff. She enjoyed the activities and helped out with gardening and the library. There are many happy memories of visits in the garden and family dinners in the Tea Room. Many thanks to all the staff at Pinecrest for their exemplary care throughout her five years there and who regularly took the time to drop by her room and say hello.
Evelyn is predeceased by her husband Fernand Emile in 1987; an infant son in 1955 and her sister Doris in 2007.
She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Rick and Margaret Moore; her grandsons, Peter (Amy) and Andrew (Ashley); her great- grandsons, William and Cooper; her sister Jeannette Angus; as well as numerous nieces and nephews and many close friends.
A graveside service will be held at a later date.

Entrusted with Arrangements.

  • Margaret, our sympathies to you and your family. Our mom Marie passed on August 25, she had massive stroke 5 years ago and was confined to a wheelchair. We both had great moms and they will be surely missed. To great memories. Take care, Gay - Posted by: Gay Arnal Melnic (cousin) on: Oct 01, 2020
