One of Evelyn’s greatest passions was painting.  Her art became popular, selling much of her work.  Evelyn and Arnot’s home presents an array of her artwork.
Evelyn had a strong faith in God that began at age 8. She loved to be part of church and community.  Evelyn taught Sunday School, was instrumental in starting a Girl Guide troop at Wasaga Beach and in recent years made and sold aprons for missions.  She loved to travel and camp.
Evelyn and Arnot spent many days on the road between Ontario and British Columbia visiting family and exploring Canada.   She will be missed.
