Evelyn Quick

June 17, 1931 - May 25, 2014


Evelyn passed away peacefully at the Cowichan District Hospital on May 25 after having suffered a massive stroke. She was born in Liverpool, England on June 17, 1931. In 1965 she emigrated to Canada, traveling by ship accompanied by her four children, Alan, Susan, Ian and Jackie. Her first husband Tom Roughley had traveled before her a few months earlier to set up a family home. They first lived in Calgary but subsequently moved to Victoria, Sydney and finally to Duncan.

In 1968 Evelyn joined the Church of the Latter Day Saints. She became a devout and faithful member fulfilling many church callings. She served two missions for the Church, one to India, a country that she adored and one to Montreal. One of her regrets in life was that she never had the opportunity to return to India as she loved its people and culture.

Evelyn had the wonderful gift of touching the hearts of every person that she met. She had no strangers in her life as every person that she met immediately became a potential friend. She had boundless energy and was always prepared to help others but without asking for anything back in return.

In May 2004 she married her second husband, Viv Quick and together they had 10 wonderful years of marriage. They traveled extensively back to England and on many cruises until regrettably failing health curtailed their travels.

She will be sorely missed by her husband Viv, her surviving children Susan, Ian and Jackie, her grandchildren and great grandchildren and especially her dear friends Maxine, Clay and Angela whose love and care supported her during the final failing years of her life.

There will be a private family Funeral Service on Tuesday, June 3, 2014 at HW Wallace Burial and Cremation Centre, followed by a Celebration of Life at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 1815 Tzouhalem Road, Duncan BC at 2:00 P.M. Flowers are graciously declined. Donations to the Cowichan Valley Hospice Society would be greatly appreciated.

From: Joanne Earnshaw
Relation: Evelyn was my great aunt x

I have been privelaged in my lifetime to have Ev and Viv involved in it! To have them both there to share in my children’s christenings was a blessing. Everyone who met Ev just fell in love with her, not only because she was little and cute but she was infectious:-) her voice, her laugh, her hugs, Ev was Ev and there’ll never be anyone like her! Going out for a meal once, she challenged my husband that he couldn’t eat the famous dinner deal they served, it was a ridiculous amount of meat, veg, chips etc and Ev bet him that if he finished it she would pay for it! Viv and I had to pick her up off the floor she was astounded that he’d done it!! Ha ha find memories I will remember each one and watch you fondly on our home videos Evelyn xx you were always there when I needed you, I will love you forever and always xxxx shine bright my angel and take care lots of love from Jo, Andy, max and Mia xxxx

Relation: Ev was my great aunt x

Ev, you’ve had a huge influence on my life. I will forever be grateful to have been related to you, loved by you, to have known you and love you and to have spent some wonderful times with you. I will ensure your memory lives on in my stepchildren who adore you and ‘nanny Betty’. You have been responsible for me, my sisters, niece, nephew and stepchildren trying veg because “they’re not British *carrots/broccoli etc*, they’re Canadian *as before*, Auntie Ev sent them especially for you, they’re much nicer in Canada!” will never forget you. Lisa, Mark, Jake and Lauren xxx

From: Penny Greenfield
Relation: a very good friend

Viv, I am so sorry. I just received word. Dear Ev a truly wonderful friend with always her ready laugh with her Brit sense of humour. The twinkle in her eye she always had and concern for everyone but herself. I remember the birthday celebration in Parksville, what a wonderful time we all had. I am truly grateful for having Ev as a friend.
Penny (now living in Penticton)
