Evelyn Margaret Deering was Mom to her daughters, Barb (Grant) Gardiner and Marlene (Vern) Ruff; Nan to her ten grandchildren, Gary, Catherine, Bruce (Michele), Joni (Murray), Deb (Albert), Jim (Angie), Bob (Kandi), Susan (Mike), Lori (Harlan) and Kathy (Carmen); her twenty-one great grandchildren; and her first great great grandson, Wyatt; two brothers-in-law, Bob Spooner and Howard Moore; two sisters-in-law, Ruth Richardson and Rosie Lehr; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Nan was predeceased by her husband, Ed; her daughter, Barb; her parents, Robert and Mary Richardson; her great grandson, Will Bouchard; and her great granddaughter, Erin Gardiner. Nan was the other half of the ever-practical, always there-for-you Nana and Pa duo with whom she shared 62 of her 97 years. Clearly, Nan’s farm upbringing gave her the natural ability to nurture us all through her homemade food – fresh buns, turkey soup, pumpkin pie and nana bread were among our favs. Without question, we were all lucky to have shared so many great years with her. The Nana who seemed like she would really live forever, will truly be missed. Our great thanks to the staff of Sunnyside Nursing Home for their kind care throughout Nan’s last years. The Funeral Service will be held at FIFTH AVENUE MEMORIAL UNITED CHURCH, 476 – 4th Street SE, on Tuesday, September 8th, 2015 at 1:30 p.m. with Reverend Helen Reid officiating. A private interment will take place at Hillside Cemetery. Memorial gifts in Evelyn’s memory may be made to Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, Alberta/NWT Chapter, #700 – 10665 Jasper Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta T5J 3S9, or to The Will Bouchard Memorial Foundation (willbouchard.com).
