Evelyn was born on June 18th,1959 and grew up in Rainy River, ON. She moved to Winnipeg, MB in 1978 where she devoted her 45-year long career to caring for the elderly at Golden Door Geriatric Centre. Evelyn’s compassionate nature and gentle spirit brought comfort to those she cared for, and she easily made many friends among her those who became her “work family”. Evelyn’s legacy of love, strength, and kindness will forever live on in the hearts of those who were privileged to know her.
