I grew up knowing Eve as a neighbour on Water St and a co-worker at Canadian Tire where she worked for many years. Eve was a great lady and I will always remember her. Gordon and family, our thoughts are with you. Gary & Carol Walsh

WE send our thoughts and prayers to your family. Eve was such a great friend to our mother Dorothy and they had many adventures together. Just a trip through the back yard where they each knew the other would be ready for a visit. Eve was such a nice lady and we got to know her through our Mom. Dorothy sends her sympathies and hugs and love to the family. She will miss her good friend Eve very much.

Penny has always talked about what wonderful lady she was and her importance to your family. I'm so sorry for your loss. Words always seem completely inadequate at a time like this. Please know you are in my thoughts. Nadine

Our condolences to the family. Someone as special as Evelyn will not be forgotten. She was our neighbor at Hope Bay Campground. It always brings a smile to my face when I remember her joining us for our ladies night dinner and a movie on the deck. Such a delightful person.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family at this very difficult sad time. I have very loving memories of Aunt Evelyn and she will be in all of our hearts forever. Everyone that knew Aunt Evelyn were very fortunate to be able to remember her being the headstrong, caring, loving person that she was. There was absolutely nothing that she could not accomplish. Aunt Evelyn was a second mother to the Braun children and went way beyond being an aunt and we will always cherish her motherhood. I know that she is in a loving place with Uncle George, her two sisters(my mom and Aunt Flo) and my dad and Uncle Bill. May her loving and caring memories stay in all of our hearts forever. Be at peace Aunt Evelyn and you will be missed.
