DONALDSON – Evelyn Ann

July 30, 1921 – January 18, 2010

It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our mother, Evelyn Ann Donaldson at the Rockyview General Hospital on Monday, January 18, 2010 at the age of 88 years.

Evelyn loved Calgary and considered it home after relocating from her birthplace of Montreal, QC over thirty years ago.

Mom was a most caring, kind, and loving soul who always put family first. Her humour and selflessness were apparent right up until the end; for that we thank you Mom.

Evelyn is survived by her children, Bob (Edith), Cheryl (Al), and Audrey (Dennis); six grandchildren, twelve great-grandchildren; sister Margie; brother Allan (Patty), and sister-in-law Pat. Evelyn was predeceased by the love of her life for fifty-eight years, her husband Jack; sister Viola; and brother Don.

We wish to thank Dr. Simmons and the staff at the Rockyview Hospital for their caring support and compassion during our time of need. In addition, we wish to thank Dr. Wayne Warnica for being such a wonderful doctor and friend for the last thirty-four years.

At Evelyn’s request, no funeral service will be held. Forward condolences through If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Alberta, 200, 119 – 14th Street N.W., Calgary, AB T2N 1Z6 Telephone: (403) 264-5549,

You will be sadly missed Mom, but never forgotten.

    Dear Donaldson family,

    It is with deepest sympathy that we send greeting on to you and the family. We are your cousins from the states, Lorna, and Sandi. Our sister Elaine passed away back in 1985 I believe it was. Elaine and family who lived in Plattsburgh, N.Y. would often make the trip to Montreal to visit with Jack, and his sister Margaret. While Aunt Christie was still alive there in the convent in Montreal they would also visit her. Elaine’s son Jami now in his fifties was always taken up with Uncle Jack as we knew him, and sent for Jack’s military records. Your father/grandfather received many medal for his dedicated service during WW1. Some of the family have been working on, and have posted some of Jack medal’s there along with an old photo my mother, Mary Williams, Aunt Mae or Aunt Anna had of him. One other bit of news from back East, your cousin John Angus Kennedy, and his brothers on the farm there in McCrimmon’s Corners Ontario were asking for you. They often wonder what happened to Jack’s kids.
    Bloomfield, New York
    Your mom I believe came down to Aunt Anna’s 80th birthday, along with other members of the family. Give our love to all.
    With love and Sympathy
    Sandi Knopf
