Ella Mae Evenson

March 24, 1918 – December 9, 2014

Ella Mae Evenson passed away on Tuesday,

December 9, 2014 at the age of 96.

Ella was predeceased by her sisters; Isabel, Dorothy, Mildred, and Lois; her brother, and her nephew Arnold.  She leaves behind her husband of 68 years, Walter (Wally) Norman Evenson, and many nieces and nephews, all the way to great, great, great nieces and nephews!!

Ella loved children, dogs, crocheting, knitting, ice-skating, and her Ministry.  She was also an avid square-dancer, often traveling to different towns in BC to participate!  Ella worked as a waitress in Port Alberni in the Café she and Wally owned, and as a furniture salesperson at Woodwards in Port Alberni until the store closed.  She also received a diploma for hair waving and esthetics.

We would like to thank her local congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Qualicum Beach for all their caring support over the past few years, and all the nurses and doctors on the fifth floor of the Nanaimo General Hospital for their thoughtfulness and kindness over the past few weeks.

A Celebration of Life will be held in Ella’s

honour at 1:00 pm on Saturday, December 20, 2014 at the Qualicum Kingdom Hall at

423 First Avenue West in Qualicum Beach. 

A reception will follow.
