Dear Aunt Evelyn, you were a very important part of my life and my family's lives. You watched my children grow. You were a part of every birthday, anniversary, Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter and Mother's Day (as my God Mother). We have fond memories of all of these events in life with you. Now we want to say Rest In Peace, Auntie.
Love, Donna, Verne, Andrew, Matthew and Caterina.

My family and I will always remember her cheerful wonderful personality whenever we saw her anywhere whether at weddings, family’s, friend’s, or relative’s homes. Always caring wanting to know how well we were doing. I can’t forget the time when Evelyn came over and brought us little travelling barbie cases for my sister and I before leaving for a family trip to Italy in 1963. We still have them. God speed dear cousin. We will never forget you.

Last time I saw you we laughed and had pizza and I gave you the rosary from St. Peter's in Rome. Still laughing over your comment that you were surprised it didn't collapse when I went to confession! So happy Monsignor Joe Shiels is going to visit you. I too cannot afford to get there - my flight was $1300+

I will be there in spirit and so will as many nieces, nephews and relatives as possible. I will be in church here from 11am to help send you off. (930 Toronto time)

I know too that all of the kids who went to see you in the giant apple for candy floss and treats do too.

Rest easy Auntie Ev and know that you are loved.

My God! I'm 64 and I still think of her as my "Auntie"! ❤️
