Evelyn Latta of Calgary passed away on Friday, February 27, 2015 at the age of 101 years.
Evelyn’s favourite employment was as manager at Grand Blanc Auto Workers Credit Union for twenty-five years, retiring at 72. She loved sewing and before losing her sight she was an avid reader. Family was always important to her and she and her husband had fifty years plus one month of happy marriage until his death. Upon moving to Priddis, she became active in Red Deer Lake United Church. Evelyn especially enjoyed her involvement with the Heritage Seniors’ group in Calgary and the many wonderful people and activities shared through this group.
Evelyn is survived by her son and daughter-in-law Ken and Anamaria Latta of Miami, FL; two daughters and sons-in-law, Kathryn and Peter Matrosovs of Priddis, AB and Cynthia and Steve Long of Waller, TX; six grandsons, Ricardo Latta (Tava), Derek Latta (Norma) and Fernando Latta (Jenifer), Kevin Matrosovs and Kyle Matrosovs, and Sean Long; six great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother Joseph Bradley (Marge) and numerous nieces and nephews. Evelyn was predeceased by her husband Kenneth (KO) Latta and four siblings.
