(nee HARCUS)

July 20, 1961 - March 18, 2023

It is with great emotion that we announce the passing of our beloved Evelyn Marie Cyr (nee Harcus) after a short yet valiant battle with cancer on March 18, 2023, at the Riverview Health Centre.
Born July 20, 1961, to parents Olga and Don Harcus, in Selkirk, Manitoba and spent the early part of her life in Port Alberni, BC.
Throughout her entire life Evelyn assumed the role of caregiver after the passing of her father, whether emotionally for herself at a young age, for her siblings, family, or anyone who Ev encountered. Ev always chose to put everyone else above herself and acted with such selflessness in all aspects of her life.
After following her mother's footsteps Evelyn found her natural fit in nursing where she put her caring nature to good use at the St. Boniface Hospital for an impressive 39-year career.
Lover of many things, Evelyn would like to be remembered as a little girl with a thirst for knowledge and quiet curiosity. Evelyn had a strong love of nature, particularly the water and always longed to be close to it.
In her last weeks the phrases and affirmations such as "Choose to thrive not just survive" and "you never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have" became very present.
Evelyn will be forever remembered by her mother Olga, partner Clarke, sisters, Sherry (Terry), Kim (Stan), brother Don, son Nolan (Madison), best friends, Debbie and Jo-Ann, countless cousins, friends, nieces and nephews, and her precious grandson Easton, all of whom will take Evelyn's lead to live the rest of their lives full of positivity.
Many thanks to the Riverview Health Care team, CancerCare and anyone who has played a part in Evelyn's journey.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, March 24, 2023 at 11:00 a.m. in the Gilbart Funeral Home, 309 Eveline St., Selkirk, Manitoba.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Kids Help Phone or St. Boniface Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
This summer please consider planting some wildflowers in memory of Evelyn.

"As long as we remember a person they are not really gone, their thoughts, their feelings, their memories, they become a part of us"

Gilbart Funeral Home, Selkirk
