Evelyn grew up on a farm. She met Edwin while working at Bethany Bible Institute, Hepburn, Sask. They started life together in Dalmeny, Sask., and in 1965, moved to a farm nearby. Evelyn taught Sunday school and sang in the choir. Her faith and the church were important. Evelyn loved planting flowers, attending music festivals, making photo albums, watching curling on TV and helping grandchildren learn piano. In recent years, Evelyn enjoyed making cards and volunteering at Spruce Manor.
