I am so sorry to hear of Evelyn's passing. I have many fond memories of her while I was growing up. She was such a kind sweet lady. I know my mom considered her a 'friend' and looked forward to exchanging xmas cards every year. Let your memories help to guide you through this sad time.
Evelyn's Family, I'm so sorry to hear of Evelyn's passing. I was a neighbour around the corner from her when she lived in Petrolia on Fifth Street. I used to do her hair 25 years ago. One of my first customers after opening my shop in my home. Great lady, we always enjoyed our visits. R.I.P. Dear Evelyn. Take care, Paula
My deepest sympathies in the passing of Aunt Evelyn.I remember the great times at her house, and the many times she gave me money for me to go out for a show. She was a beautiful caring lady. No one could ask for a better Aunt. may your family find comfort in the many happy memories she has created for all of you. God bless all of you, and know that i am thinking of you at this difficult time. Ken Salisbury and family.
I have such fond memories of Evelyn, my sister in law, but I looked on her as my big sister. When she came over to England and stayed with me and my partner we had lots of laughs and adventures and when we stayed with Evelyn in Petrolia when Jim was in the home we had such a lovely time and were made so welcome. Although so far away, I'm gonna miss my sis big time. I was hoping to be able to see Evelyn one more time, but it was not to be. RIP Evelyn, I'll always love you. They broke the mould when God made you. I am thinking of you all at this sad time, take care love Derry & family
