July 5, 1948 – Aug. 13, 2015
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our mother and grandmother at the 100 Mile House Hospital on Aug. 13, 2015.
She is predeceased by her daughter Doris. Evellen will be greatly missed. Left to cherish her many memories are her surviving sons Shane and Dallas, her five grandchildren; Mathew, Daniel, Summer, Brooklynne and Kristen.
Evellen was born on July 5, 1948 at Headingly, Manitoba to Louis and Victoria Haugan. She was the youngest child of a family of five. She lived in Headingly her entire childhood and was known as an outgoing child with a bit of mischievousness mixed in with her kind and happy personality.
Evellen later moved to British Columbia with her young family in 1971 and eventually settled in 100 Mile House in 1980. Evellen was a generous and loving person who loved children, horses, gardening, walking and life in general.
Evellen will be particularly missed by those who loved her wonderful sense of humour, benefitted from her kind and sharing nature and above all her optimistic outlook on life. In her own words “I have always had a strong faith in the goodness of life despite its occasional hardships”. Losing Evellen will be one of those hardships.
A Celebration of Life will be held in the 100 Mile House Centennial Park on Saturday, Sept. 12, 2015 at 1p.m.
