What we once
enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose, for all that we love
deeply becomes part of us. (Helen
After a century of
enjoying life and creating wonderful memories with family and friends,
Evelyn closed her eyes for the last time on December 27th, 2019. A
strong woman with an independent spirit, Nana Mac or the Duchess as
she was sometimes referred to, lived her life with her family as her
primary focus. She was caring, thoughtful, hardworking, compassionate,
loving and sometimes quite outspoken. A lover of golf, bowling, bridge
and of course the occasional shot of rye, Ev was a wonderful
homemaker, caregiver and friend. Her perseverance and graceful dignity
as she dealt with adversity is a lesson she leaves with all of us. We
are truly blessed that she was part of our lives for so
Predeceased by her
husband, Vern, her son Brian and her grandson Andrew, she is lovingly
remembered by her daughter Linda Love (Michael Collins) and her
granddaughters Amy Newman (Jeff) and Shauna Love (Sean). Her great
grandchildren, Kylie, Ashley and Julie Newman and Xander and Libby
Edwards-Love held a very special place in her heart.
The last of the Hammond
girls, Evelyn was predeceased by her sisters and their spouses Della
(Alf), Edna (Jack), Francis (Chuck), Peggy (Doug) and her brothers
Bill (Benny) and Jack (Gert). She is fondly remembered by her sister
in law Yvonne McNeill and a number of nieces and nephews from both the
Hammond and the McNeill sides of her family.
