CHALMERS, Evelyn Frances (née HEIDAHL)
(July 2, 1913-July 28, 2005)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Evelyn in Ottawa, widow of loving husband Frederick William CHALMERS.
For more than 90 years her life shone like a beacon as an inspiration to family and Friends alike. She was strong, yet sweet, gentle and generous. Her mind was as clear as her North Sea blue eyes. Her warmth, intelligence and flashing wit were the essence of her personality.
She was kind. Throughout her life, she devoted herself to service to others through membership in the Lady Aberdeen League in Edmonton, church groups and Goodwill in Toronto. Her greatest energies over the years were always focused on her family.
She is survived and mourned by her children, Dennis and Kate CHALMERS, Frances (Lassie) and Howie WILSON, Barb and Joe IZZIO her grandchildren, Heather and Glen KELLY, Holly CHALMERS, Gordon CHALMERS, Patricia WILSON and Christopher MALLORY, Stewart WILSON and Shannon FYNN, Andrew WILSON and Céline NADREAU, Peter and Sally IZZIO, Carol IZZIO and Glen ROWLAND, and Siobhan IZZIO sixteen great-grandchildren; her sister Norah GOOD; brother-in-law Bob BAXTER; sisters-in-law Dorothy CHALMERS and Win CHALMERS cousins Karen and Don OGSTON; special Friends Lorne LEIGHTON, Elinor MURPHY, and Paul and Christine CLARK.
Dennis said "I hope that Lass, Barb and I, our children and grandchildren, all have the good fortune to live the remainder of our lives with the wit, courage, grace and good nature that Mother demonstrated so admirably."
A family celebration of her life will be held in the fall.
