She was loved deeply by her nieces and nephews whom she always connected with, Lisa, Andrea (Randy), Neil (Colleen), Marc (Petra), Colette (Thane), Michelle (Marc) along with many more great and great-great nieces and nephews.

Evie had a career of over 30 years with the Bank of Nova Scotia, where her clients and colleagues valued her organized, caring personality. She and Larry travelled the globe throughout their lives. Evie had an active life and loved skiing, walking, and golfing. She was a lifelong learner and reader and enjoyed her ladies’ book club. All that knew her loved her calm, generous, gracious demeanour and sense of humour. She was known for her fashion sense, great book collection and well-manicured nails.
