Evelyn was born in Radway, Alberta on March 18, 1932. She was married to Robert “Bud” Ward on June 26, 1951. Evelyn spent many years volunteering during her children’s school years and at the Sarcee Auxiliary Hospital. Her hobbies included knitting, rug hooking and needlepoint.

Loyal, kind and loving, Bud and Evelyn enjoyed life to the fullest from their many road trips, wonderful cruises and the friendships forged through their offshore drilling experience. Evelyn was a wonderful wife, a gifted and cherished mother and a very proud grandmother and great grandmother.

Evelyn was recently predeceased by her husband Bud on March 14, 2012. She is survived by her children; Sharon (Richard) Thompson, Douglas (Maureen) Ward, Thomas (Nora) Ward and Mary Jean (Ziad) Sabbagh, grandchildren; Bradley (Lori) Thompson, Mathew Thompson, Brandice Thompson, Brandon Ward, Omar Sabbagh and Jasmine Sabbagh, great-grandchildren; Lucas Thompson and James Thompson, sisters-in-law; Mary Hryniuk and Jean Hryniuk, numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

    Dear Sharon:
    I am so sorry at the loss of your mother. I wish I had the words to express my grief for you. I remember your mom as a sweet, loving and caring person, with an easy smile and heartwarming laugh.You are a reflection of your mother in the way you treat people with respect and empathy, not to mention the way you make each person feel loved. I know that you and your family will miss her terribly but I hope that it gives you a little bit of comfort knowing that heaven just received a most special angel.
