Evelyn passed away suddenly at the South Okanagan General Hospital with her daughter, Carmen Gillis, at her side. Evelyn’s charismatic, infectious smile and joyful nature drew many friends to her. Her faith in God helped her overcome the many obstacles and trials in her life. Family was always her number one priority. She considered Motherhood to be her full-time job and was wonderful at it. She was predeceased by her older sister, Virginia Grant of Oliver and her twin sons, James Dougald Arthur Gillis and Daniel Joseph Gillis. Evelyn was very loved by all who knew her and she gave so much love in return.
Evelyn very much enjoyed her gardening, nature, music, kitties and her beloved Hospital Thrift Shop trips. She lived every day with a grateful heart and always looked for the very best in people. Evelyn and Carmen were best of friends and could be seen toodling around town together. She made many sacrifices for her family and worked hard to make sure her children were happy and healthy. The expression “Nothing like a Mother’s Love” had to be written about her. She will be greatly missed by all and will never be forgotten and always be loved.
Finally, you have your Angel wings. Fly and be free.
