Evelyn May Ames peacefully went to be with Jesus Christ her Lord and Saviour, while surrounded by her loving family on Saturday, November 17, 2012 at Central Okanagan Hospice House, Kelowna, B.C. in her 89th year.
Beloved mother of three daughters Wendy (Gharib) Mohamed, Tricia (Ralph) Lapp and Doreen (Larry) Child and daughter-in-law Georgia Wells. Much loved Grandma of Christina Ames, Vicky Bowness, Laura (Louis-Philippe) Plante, Candace (Brian) Chapman (and their daughter Samantha), Anne (Kris Ellens) Child, John Child, Daniel Child, Charles Ames, Conor Wells and Erin Wells.
Evelyn was predeceased by her son, Charles and husband, Donald.
Over the years Evelyn enjoyed gardening, music, visiting with friends, sharing time with and baking for her grandchildren and loved to reminisce about her childhood years in Meeting Creek, Alberta. She had a wonderful smile and gentle spirit. Family and her faith were always her sources of strength and joy.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Dr. Verster, Pastor Asmus and the staff and volunteers of Hospice House for their compassionate care.
