My sincere condolences to all of Evelyn’s family and friends. May your memories bring you comfort during this difficult time. I will always remember Evelyn’s caring nature. her love of family. the love of her gardens and cooking and admired her many artistic talents.. She will be missed. I always remember when Evelyn & my Uncle Harold would leave from Sarnia in their van after a visit and she would always have the sweetest smile and a big wave as they were on their way. Rest in piece Evelyn. ,

Condolences to both Nancy and Wayne on the passing of your mother. Looking back at the Ware and later the Ware/Hagar reunions I have fond memories of Evelyn and the wonderful goodies she would bring for everyone gathered to enjoy . She was a warm caring individual who always had a smile on her face.
Rest in peace cousin Evelyn!

Nancy and family, you are in my thoughts. I remember Evelyn as being a dear friend of Mom’s. Her sunny personality would brighten the room. I wish you comfort in the memories you hold.

Nancy & Family:
I was saddened to hear of the passing of your Mom. I was in your parents company occasionally over the years.
At Buckhorn, boating on the Rideau and Stirling to name a few spots.
It was just about 2 years ago now that we all had lunch together in Beeton.
I always admired your Mom’s talents. I wish you peace.

Grandma Evelyn was a special part of our lives from her wedding to our dad/grandpa Harold Ferguson through many years of gingerbread houses, trips to the cottage and wonderful quilts and throws for snuggling. We are so grateful that she came into our lives and had wonderful adventures with Harold. Sending hugs and happy memories in this sad time.

Evelyn was a lovely lady who will be missed. She quilted with us at St. George’s in Barrie for many years. Such a talented person! Her hand stitching was exquisite. Not only quilting but other genres as well. Although I had planned to attend the funeral Tuesday, circumstances prevent it, unfortunately. My husband has been in hospital for several weeks and will be discharged Tuesday afternoon. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sad time.
Sincerely, Bonnie Craw

Remember dear Evelyn as a very gracious & intelligent lady. We were work mates at CBC. Even while retired &
living up north, she would drive down & meet us for luncheons. She was the voice of reason in our heated CBC Credit
union meetings and was loved by all.
