Evelyn began life in Revelstoke, B.C., but grew up mostly in Port Moody. She became a teacher, especially enjoying teaching grade 1. After marrying Peter, they brought up their family in Vancouver, Ottawa, and Mississauga. They retired to Victoria, B.C., to enjoy their extended family there, but eventually returned to Lakefield to be nearer their children. Evelyn enjoyed her home, her garden, her travels, but especially her family.
