Evelyn WILSON

WILSON, Evelyn Margaret

It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Evelyn Margaret Wilson (Sprague) at her home in White Rock, B.C. on Tuesday June 22, 2010.

Evelyn was born July 17, 1923 in Prince Edward County Ontario and married Webster (Web) Wilson in 1942. She and Web lived in Belleville, Calgary, Ottawa and Mississauga, Ontario, moving to White Rock B.C. in 1990.

Evelyn was predeceased by Web in 1995, son Richard in 1998, and daughter Susan in 2009. We take comfort knowing that they are together. She leaves behind daughter Jane and son-in-law Sandy, daughter-in-law Diana, grandchildren Steve (Brenda), Julie (Jeff), Jody (Jason), Drew, Heidi, Danny, and great-granddaughters Katrina, Amy, Samantha and Kennedy. Evelyn is also survived by sisters Pauline and Nell (Donald), brothers Glen (Wendy) and George (Evelyn) and a host of nieces and nephews whom she adored.

Evelyn’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren were her pride and joy. She was excited with the recent news that two more great-grandchildren are due later this year. Because she so loved children, the family is asking that in lieu of flowers donations be made to Canuck Place Children’s Hospice in Vancouver BC.

Mom was laid to rest June 29, 2010 at Victory Memorial Park in Surrey BC accompanied by Dad’s ashes. A service was held at Crescent United Church. We will celebrate her life with family in Ontario in the weeks to come.
