Evelyn was born on the farm 9 miles north of Yorkton, Saskatchewan. She was the third child of 9. Evelyn enjoyed living on the farm and helping her mother with her younger siblings. She was an avid reader, and horseback rider. Evelyn met John Wotherspoon Junior at a Country School dance. They enjoyed lots of laughs and had many similar interests. They were married and had one child Elaine Vinish. John and Evelyn eventually moved to Saskatoon and started a commercial cleaning business. In 1974 they moved to White Rock, BC to be closer to their son-in-law Edward and daughter Elaine and their 4 children, Scott, Kimberly, Kirk and Bradley. Unfortunately John’s health failed and passed away in 1979, but not before John and Evelyn instilled in their grandchildren the love of the bible and love of the grand creator Jehovah. The result of this marriage is 5 generations of Jehovah’s Witnesses. 10 years later Evelyn married Albert Bernard Coldwell. On June 9, 1990 the result of this union was 25 happy years. Bernie and Evelyn were an asset to each other, very loving & caring. You could see them walking hand in hand. They traveled extensively with family and friends.
