It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother, and sister, Caroline “Evelyn” Cooper (nee White), of Calgary, on Wednesday, March 16, 2005 at the age of 83 years.
Evelyn loved spending time with her family, and talked daily on the telephone with her cherished brother and sister. She will be lovingly remembered by her two sons and a daughter-in-law, Patrick and Gayle Cooper and Kelly Cooper, all of Calgary; her daughter and son-in-law Wendy and Gary Salloum of Nanaimo, BC; grandchildren, Kerri (Calvin), Michael, Deanna, Rory, Ross, Sean, Kyle; and great-grandson Cody. She is also survived by her brother Robert White of Nanaimo, BC; and her sister Eleanore Shymanski of Snowden, SK, and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Michael, sister Maybelle, and brother Edward.
We have only a memory, dear mother,
We cherish our whole life through;
But the sweetness will live forever
As we treasure the memory of you.
