June 23, 1944 – December 22, 2021
In loving memory ~
Evelyn was born in Bonnyville, Alberta to William and Pauline Brennan. She relocated to Terrace in 1962. Evelyn started at Derksen’s Credit Jewellers in 1969 and purchased the store in 1980. The store closed in January 1983 and Evelyn became a fulltime caregiver for foster children. She continued this work for the remainder of her life.
Evelyn is predeceased by both her parents, her brother Ed, her eldest daughter Charlotte and her husband Frank. She leaves behind her daughter Colleen (Len) Froese, granddaughter Ashley (Fernando) Medeiros, grandson Nathan (Denise) Froese and six precious great grandchildren; Max, Eva, Claire, Luke, Chloe, Liam, and her long -time resident Arthur Watts. Evelyn also leaves behind 6 siblings and their families and many friends.
The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Mills Memorial Hospital, Dr. Strydom, Home Support, Home Nursing Staff and the staff at North Coast Home Medical Equipment for all their support with Evelyn’s brief battle with cancer.
A celebration of life will be held in May 2022.
In lieu of flowers please make donations to the REM Lee FoundationObituary
