February 14, 1928 – June 28, 2019
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Evelyn Jean Rachar on Friday, June 28, 2019 at the age of 91 years in Stettler, AB. Evelyn was born February 14, 1928 in a log house on the Foxall farm near Erskine, the oldest child of Yates and Bessie Foxall. The family was completed two years later when her brothers George and Ian were born.
On June 6,1953 she married Dave Rachar. Evelyn and Dave would spend the next 52 years raising their children and farming on the Foxall farm until they retired and moved into Stettler. In 2011, after 57 years of marriage Dave passed away and Evelyn learned to carry on without him. Shortly after his passing Evelyn moved into the Willow Creek Lodge and had several wonderful years building friendships and enjoying life in the lodge. Evelyn is lovingly remembered by her children, Sharon (Kevin) Peters, Darryl (Laurie) Rachar, Heather (Bernie) Loewen. Evelyn’s six grandchildren: Karalee (Dave) Andrus, Andrew (Rachael) Peters, Destiny (Leighton) Busch, Jordon (Aja) Rachar, Matthew (Natasha) Loewen, Daniel (Risa) Loewen, are left with many precious memories of time spent with Grandma. Over the recent years 13 great grandchildren added much joy to her life.
She will be missed by her brother George (Ruth) Foxall, Jean Foxall, Dave’s siblings, spouses and numerous niece’s, nephews, other relatives and friends. Evelyn was predeceased by her parents Yates and Bessie, stepmother Ida, husband Dave, and brother Ian.
Funeral services were held on July 3, 2019 at Erskine Evangelical Church with Pastor Ross Helgeton and Pastor Mark Broadway officiating. Evelyn was laid to rest at Lakeview Cemetery, Fenn, Alberta beside her loving husband Dave with her six grandsons as Pallbearers.
