CAYWOOD, Selma Margaret Evelyn (nee Bjorge)
September 29, 1915 – November 6, 2014
Evelyn Caywood passed away peacefully on November 6, 2014. She was predeceased by husband, Alfred Beebe Caywood, sister Gladys (Robert) Keeling, brothers Ernest (Olive) Bjorge and Kenneth (Norma) Bjorge, sisters-in-law Irma (Milt) Hagen and Marion (Harold) Hood and brother-in-law Lynus Caywood. Evelyn is survived by her three children, Wendy, Bruce (Bonnie) and Bill (Dawn), ten loving grandchildren and six great-grand-children as well as many nieces and nephews and their families. Evelyn was born in Ferry Point, Alberta and grew up in Edmonton where she married Alf. Their early years together were sometimes challenging, but she was as content in a home with no electricity in Canada’s north as she was on a farm in Alberta or, later, in one of the beautiful homes she kept. When Alf retired they moved to Vancouver Island where they spent many years enjoying their gardens and poodles and hosted many, many joyous gatherings of family and friends. Evelyn was a gracious hostess and a gifted cook. Anyone who visited her home was welcomed by her kind and warm heart. After Alf’s passing, Evelyn moved to South Surrey to be closer to her family. For several years she enjoyed travelling extensively with family and friends. She continued entertaining into her early nineties. She loved being challenged to a game of bridge or scrabble, and always had time for a game of UNO or ‘go fish’ with an adoring grandchild. A Celebration of Evelyn’s Life will be held on Saturday, November 15, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. at Valley View Memorial Gardens and Funeral Home, 14660 72nd Avenue, Surrey, BC. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the SPCA or a charity of your choice.
