We Remember

Ames, Evelyn May

Peacefully went to be with Jesus Christ her Lord and Saviour, while surrounded by her loving family on Saturday, November-17, 2012 at Central Okanagan Hospice House, Kelowna, B.C. in her 89th year.


Beloved mother of three daughters Wendy (Gharib) Mohamed, Tricia (Ralph) Lapp and Doreen (Larry) Child and daughter-in-law Georgia Wells. Much loved Grandma of Christina Ames, Vicky Bowness, Laura (Louis-Philippe) Plante, Candace (Brian) Chapman (and their daughter Samantha), Anne (Kris Ellens) Child, John Child, Daniel Child, Chuck (Charles) Ames, Conor Wells and Erin Wells.


Evelyn was predeceased by her son, Charles and husband, Donald.


Over the years Evelyn enjoyed gardening, music, visiting with friends, sharing time with and baking for her grandchildren and loved to reminisce about her childhood years in Meeting Creek, Alberta.  She had a wonderful smile and gentle spirit. Family and her faith were always her sources of strength and joy.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Dr. Verster, Pastor Asmus and the staff and volunteers of Hospice House for their compassionate care.

A Memorial Service will be held at Redeemer Lutheran Church, 3637 Brown Road, West Kelowna, V4T 1P7 on Saturday, November 24, 2012 at 2:00 p.m.  Interment will follow in the Spring of 2013 amidst the shooting stars at the Meeting Creek Cemetery.
