Evelyn was born in 1917 during WW1 and lived through the Depression. Originating from Lac Saint Ann born in Edmonton, and widowed early, she raised three daughters as a single parent. With only basic reading and writing she rose above all challenges to full pension at the University of Alberta Hospital as a physiotherapist assistant in the burn unit. She was recognized for her gentle and kind treatment of patients and was often asked to train the new physiotherapist staff.
Evelyn learned to appreciate the value of food and was known for her lifelong love affair with her garden.
She had many friends and loved ones who she has out lived most of, but there are some very special people the family would like to thank, Jackie Murray, Linda Dawson, the late Velma Bell and of course those who attended to her for the past decade at Chart well Country Cottage.
