We sadly announce the passing of Evelyn Denis on Tuesday, January 7, 2014 at the age of 81 years. She was very important to so many people. She will be lovingly remembered by her son Brad and daughter-in-law Karen as well as her daughter Barb and son-in-law Ted. She was so proud of her devoted and cherished grandchildren Michael, Jordan (Clare) and Danielle Denis and Joel and Nicole Finningley. Evelyn was predeceased by her husband Michael, her daughter-in-law Virginia and eight siblings. She is survived by three siblings and many family members and friends.

Growing up in a large Saskatchewan farming family shaped Ev’s values for the rest of her life. Despite declining health, Ev faced life head-on with grit, determination and a keen sense of humor. To the end her mind was active and engaging and she had much to say on many topics past, present and future. She has been a fine Matriarch who gave us the gifts of love and sharing, and her legacy will live on.

    I was so very sorry to read of Ev’s death. We worked together in the Gift Shop at the Alberta Children’s Hospital, and shared many laughs and stories. Ev. was a long-time volunteer in the gift shop, where she made many friends and we all enjoyed her humor, her opinions and her love of life. She did live a full life, and may she find peace in heaven with her loved ones and friends.
