EVELYN ANN MAYCHER (published on January 08, 2009)



EVELYN ANN MAYCHER June 25, 1936 - January 5, 2009 An energetic and youthful soul changed its course on Monday January 5, 2009. Evelyn succumbed to the cancer that had surprised everyone in a body that had so rarely been sick. At 10:30 p.m. Ev opened her beautiful blue eyes one last time and with her husband of 50 years, Stan, holding her hand, was peacefully led by the angels to join her beautiful daughter Sandra in heaven. Evelyn was predeceased by her parents Alex and Sybil Yustak; by her beautiful 3 year old daughter Sandra and by her grandbaby Zachary. Left to cherish Ev's memory but mourn her absence are her husband Stan; daughters, Brenda (Gerry Holowka), Cheryl (Vaughn White) and Nancy (Forge Francella) and grandchildren, Andrew, Alexandra, Quintana, Graeson, Rhonan, and Alessandra. Ev is survived by her brothers, Gordie (Eileen) and Ronnie (Joanne); nieces, nephews, cousins and many friends and neighbors. Evelyn was a dedicated and loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Ev's family and especially her grandchildren were a huge focal point in her life. She was an integral part in their lives and their activities. Whether it was shuttling someone to school, attending school functions and cheering them on at all sporting events, Ev made the grandchildren the centre of her universe. Ev was a proud homemaker and stayed home to raise her daughters until they were in school. At this point she embarked on her career as a paraprofessional. Her love of children made this job a joy. She loved being a para and worked at Emerson School for 20 years before retiring in 1993. Ev's retirement made for a smooth transition into her new career as a grandmother. Memorable summers were spent at Catastrophe Lake surrounded by her extended family and friends. Ev enjoyed casino junkets and frequent shopping excursions south of the border. She was a gorgeous, classy lady who was always dressed to the nine's. The family would like to acknowledge the Doctors and caregivers during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Ev's favorite charity, The Siloam Mission, or a charity of your choice. Funeral mass will be celebrated on Friday January 9th at 3:00 p.m. at the Holy Redeemer Catholic Church 264 Donwood Drive. Cremation has already taken place and a private family interment will take place at a later date. White's Funeral Home Neepawa Carberry in care of arrangements 204-476-2848.
