Evelyn Grey McLean passed away peacefully on Tuesday, December 22, 2020, at the Village of St. Clair at the age of 89 as a result of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Predeceased by dear parents James Grey McLean III (1958) and May Millicent McLean (nee Smith)(1992), and dear big brother and sailing buddy James Grey McLean IV (1946). She is a proud descendant of great grandmothers Archange Jones, nee Descomps dit Labadie of Detroit, and Elizabeth Renier Dixie LeBer of Poona India.
Evelyn was awarded a Bachelor of Arts degree by Assumption University of Windsor in 1958, and a Master of Arts degree in European Architecture by Wayne State University in 1967; was Dean of Women, Lecturer in European Art History and Administrator at the University of Windsor; the first Heritage Planner for City of Windsor; a founder of The Friends of the Court (Mackenzie Hall, Windsor); and a founder of Les Amis Duff-Bâby, Sandwich; a heritage tour guide; a glass mosaic artist; and author of several booklets and papers on Windsor’s oldest heritage buildings. Evelyn was a most accomplished woman and a leader in the preservation of our heritage. She leaves no relatives, but many friends and colleagues.
We gratefully appreciate the tender care Evelyn received in this time of COVID from Dr. Shen, Dr. Chevalier and the Harrow team members at Schlegel Village at St. Clair.
