EVELYN MYRTLE ADAMSON
1932 - 2020
Ev was predeceased by her parents, Abraham and Kathleen Boyer; her husband Bill (2010); her sons, Douglas and James; her siblings, Ernest, May Churches, Albert and Raymond.
She is survived by her son Rob (Elaine) and grandson Scott (Sam), as well as many nieces and nephews.
Ev was born in Winnipeg on July 17, 1932. She married the love of her life Bill and they were married for 57 years. She began working at the age of 15 and she worked in various jobs as a factory worker, a book keeper and a clerk at Eatons and Talbot Pharmacy. She maintained a lifelong friendship with Matt Glass and his family. She turned her love of making ceramics into a business and ran a ceramics studio for several years. Once she retired, she spent her time volunteering and working on her many crafts.
Ev had a way of making you feel as though you were a part of her family. Even though Scott was her only grandchild, many others would lovingly call her 'Grandma'.
After Bill died, Ev moved to Concordia Village and she was there for over nine years. She loved living at the village. She was an active participant in the many activities they had and she volunteered whenever she could. Her favourite performer was Aaron Hutton and she had a special bond with him.
At the end of August, she moved into the Maples Long Term Care Home. It was there, that she contracted Covid-19.
We would like to thank the incredible staff at Grace Hospital who made her last days comfortable and allowed her family to visit with her virtually.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, a memorial service will be held at a later date.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)
Evelyn and I became fast friends at Concordia Village...her bright and friendly personality really drew you to her. She told me that I was one of the first staff she got to know after she moved in, as I had recently started working there around the same time. At dinner she would invite me to her table for a chat, and always took an interest in my life; she truly felt like another grandmother to me. She offered many hugs, stories of her family and her life, and words of encouragement. Although she sometimes forgot my name, she always recognized me and was so happy to see me. She definitely made my shifts brighter with her smile and laughter. I extend my deepest sympathy to her family and friends...Evelyn was truly a special woman and I will never forget her kindness. May she be at peace and continue to smile from Heaven. - Posted by: Chelsea (Staff at Concordia Village) on: Jan 14, 2021
All the kids in the neighborhood called Evelyn, Auntie Eve. She was the nicest person to all us kids. When Auntie Eve moved to Concordia Village she was just down the hall from my mom, Helen Dudych and they both enjoyed participating in the events at the village. They both truly enjoyed going to play Bingo on Saturday nights. She was a very special lady and will be missed. Both my mom and her will be together again playing bingo on Saturday nights. - Posted by: Elaine Scammell (Dudych) (Childhood neighbor) on: Nov 29, 2020
Rob, Elaine Scott and Family: Thinking of you all as I read the passages today I recognized your Mom/Grandma from baseball games when all our families would watch Scott, Quinn and all the boys baseball team. She was always so kind, caring, funny we enjoyed watching her cheer on Scott and the entire team playing baseball. She often spoke of her husband Bill and her family. Our hearts feel deeply sad as your Mom/Grandma has passed know she is free from pain and continues to watch down on you all with a huge smile. Her laugh was contagious. Such a bubbly personality. Take Care Love the Sapach Family Glen, Cheryl, Quinn and Leah ❤️❤️❤️❤️🤗🙏 - Posted by: Cheryl (Friends from Baseball ) on: Nov 28, 2020
I knew Evelyn for 3 years while employed at Concordia Village. She was such an amazing positive lady who loved her coffee while socializing with other residents. She always was so caring of others and did not show the pain in her heart after losing her son. She was a very strong lady who was an asset to the village. Evelyn loved to chat so she was never at a loss for words. She took great care of herself. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. May God be with her family and friends during this sad time. Wishing you peace and the love of your friends and neighbours! - Posted by: lynne cooper (former supervisor/hostess at Concordia Village) on: Nov 28, 2020
