Evelyn York (Lawrence) with family have gathered. She was called home to meet her Savior on July 30, 2022.Evelyn is survived by her family; James (Joanne), Arlene (Michael), Keith, Susan (Michael), her grandchildren, and her great grandchildren.

She was predeceased by her husband Victor Assels in 1971; her parents Bert and Edna Lawrence, and in 2019 her daughter Joan (Randy Porcher).Evelyn met Owen York whom she married in 1984 and together they moved to Alberta. Owen passed away in 2016.

Evelyn loved gardening. While in Alberta she built a greenhouse where she started most of her plants from seed. Soon the house was surrounded by a colorful array of multiple flowers. The deer were pleased with her selection of plants too and, although mischievous they, too, were loved.

Evelyn often spoke of the great enjoyment she received from her times with her “sisters” in the Lord. She spent time working in the office of Children’s Youth Ranch and also taught Sunday School. Some of those children are now married and still corresponded with her on Facebook.Her last few years in Stonewall were spent enjoying her ever increasing family, especially her great grandchildren.

In her last few months, Mom enjoyed living with her son-in-law, Randy. There, she was surrounded by family and cared for by Maria and Hannah, her home attendants. And, we can’t overlook the many angels in the health-care field for their loving care and dedication to Mom.

There will be a private family funeral. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Bethel Orphanage in Kisimu, Kenya, ℅ Box 4646, Stonewall, MB R0C 2Z0.
