EVANS, Helen Elena

April 24, 1920 – Edwand, Alberta
November 7, 2017 – Calgary, Alberta

Helen, beloved wife of the late Lincoln Evans of Calgary, AB, passed away on November 7, 2017 at the age of 97 years.

Helen was born on April 24, 1920 in Edwand, Alberta. Throughout her lifetime she way employed with Hudson’s Bay in the menswear department. Here she enjoyed outfitting the Soviet oilmen during the late 60’s and 70’s especially if a Ukrainian was among them, that way she could practice her Ukrainian speaking skills. In her spare time Helen enjoyed gardening. She was known as a quiet unassuming gardener. She also loved cooking, canning, square dancing, singing and beading, but most of all spending time with her family.

Helen is survived by daughter and son-in-law Liala and Chris Stafford of Calgary; son and daughter-in-law Rick and Marilyn of London, Ontario; her grandchildren James Stafford of Calgary, Vanessa (Brandon) Dubyk of Ottawa, Ontario and Colin Evans of North Battleford, Saskatchewan; her precious great-grandchild Lochlan Dubyk; as well as numerous family and friends.

Helen was predeceased by her loving husband Lincoln Evans; and her granddaughter Laura Evans.

The family would like to thank all of the Royal Park Staff for their exception care and attention to our mother.
