Evalyn Wills

Born in 1921, passed away peacefully on August 1, 2014.

Ev is predeceased by her husband Sid, to whom she was married for 66 years.

She is survived by her loving children Ron (Carolyn) Wills, Mel (Heather) Wills, Wayne (Tracey) Wills and Gloria Wills. She has 5 wonderful grandchildren, Leah (Wade) Pile, Andrea (Lorne) Camp, Derek (Janice) Wills, Glenda Wills and Julia Hague. She is also survived by 7 loving great grandchildren.

Ev was born in Victoria but met Sid on the prairies. They lived most of their lives in Nanaimo.

Right up to her last few weeks Ev lived a vibrant life, full of fun and laughter. She had many cherished friends who cared for her and whom she loved deeply. She loved her home on Songbird Place and all the wonderful residents there.

Once the children were grown she took up painting and made beautiful paintings in oil and water colour. She took great pride in keeping an immaculate home and appearance.

Bye Mom. We love you! Say Hi to Dad for us.
