HEASMAN, Evelyn Gertrude Elena (nee Hilton)
Evelyn was in her 93rd year of life (1926-2019) when on March 8, 2019 she peacefully took her last breath in her sleep. She was a bighearted soul with a friendly smile, and quick to give you a kiss on your hand. She was also determined (even stubborn at times), hard working, and held on to life with tenacity. After a stroke in 2007, she lost mobility and speech and moved from her home in Callander to reside at both Nipissing Manor (2007-2010) and Eastholme (2010-2019), where the staff often called her a “sweet lady”. Evelyn’s husband of 46 years, John Heasman, preceded her in death (1913-1995). Evelyn was the beloved mother of 3 daughters and 2 sons: Janis “Sheila” Boucher of Parry Sound, Kathleen Young-Cooper (1945-2010), Charles Heasman of Redbridge, Rosemary Cook of Broomfield, Colorado, USA, and Mark Heasman (1962-2008). She will also be lovingly remembered by 17 grandchildren, 15 plus great grandchildren and even some great-great grandchildren. Evelyn was predeceased by siblings Joan Robertson, Jim Hilton, Vernon Hilton, and June Hilton. She lived to be the oldest of her family. Evelyn’s family invites friends and family visitation on Saturday, March 16th, 2-4:30 pm at Paul Funeral Home, Powassan. A private family memorial will be held Sunday, March 17th, at Eastholme Chapel. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Evelyn’s honour to Eastholme Resident Council Garden Beautification Fund (cheques payable to “Eastholme” please).
