Evelyn Easton

May 5, 1933 - December 2, 2011


Evelyn May Easton (nee Wright)
May 5th, 1933 – December 2nd 2011
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our Mother, Evelyn Easton, on the 2nd of December as a result of a cerebral haemorrhage suffered on November 25th. Ev is survived by a loving family, son Douglas (Joan), daughter Shelley Mayo (Davinder) and 3 cherished granddaughters Elizabeth Mayo, Elspeth Easton and Brittany Mayo. Ev is also survived by sisters Doreen Key (Stewart) and Mary Patrick and their families and she will be missed by her many friends. Ev was born on May 5th 1933 in Shawnigan Lake, she moved with her parents at an early age to Youbou where she lived until she was married. Ev moved to Duncan in the late 1950’s and remained the rest of her life. Ev worked as a medical stenographer for almost 40 years, over 30 of them at J.U. Colman and Associates. In 1992 Ev survived a life changing accident being run over in a crosswalk on her way to work. After close to a 9 month recover and with a lot of determination Ev went back to work and stayed until she turned 65. Ev was active in the Eastern Star (Sunset Chapter #44), Scottish Country Dancing, the Heart and Stroke walking club, Lawn and Carpet Bowling and the Parkinson’s Society. While Parkinson’s slowed down Ev in recent years she was determined to remain as active as possible and continued many of her activities until her untimely death.
In keeping with Ev’s wishes a memorial service will be held at 1pm December 17th at the Duncan United Church, 246 Ingram St., Duncan BC. Flowers are gratefully declined by the family in favour of Ev’s two charities, The BC Parkinson’s Society or the BC Heart and Stroke Society.
