Evie was an outgoing, inventive person, who loved meeting people and trying new things. She never stopped, was always, always busy on the go and never could sit still. She loved cooking, canning and experimenting with recipes. She had a love of the outdoors, farming, gardening, and selling her vegetables, homemade crafts, baking and canning at the farmers market.
She loved her grandchildren, great grandchildren and will be missed by her family.
She no longer walks beside us but she will always live within our hearts.
We would like to thank the Ontario Finnish Resthome staff and doctors for all their care and compassion.
A private family service will be held at a later date.
Memorial contributions by cheque or online to the Ontario Finnish Resthome Association would be greatly appreciated by the family.
