Evelyn May Naylor passed away peacefully on Tuesday, December 10th, 2013 at the age of 96 years. Evelyn is survived by her daughter, Anthea. Evelyn was predeceased by her husband, Ronald; and her son, Timothy. Evelyn was born in Nottingham, England on May 7th, 1917. She attended the Hollygirt School for Girls along with her four sisters. Evelyn drove an ambulance during the war and worked in Loughborough as a dental assistant for John Coe. Evelyn was a member of the Polaris Mountaineering Club where she met her husband, Ron. They married in 1956, and after a ski honeymoon in Austria, immigrated to Canada. Life in Ottawa was full of new experiences and the arrival of two children. The family moved to Ralston in 1964 for Ron’s work at DRES and to be closer to the mountains. Evelyn and Ron continued to climb in the Rockies and were members of the Alpine Club of Canada. Evelyn explored her talent for art by taking courses and workshops. Her work was shown in art galleries and art shows. She was a member of the Medicine Hat Art Club and the Fibre Arts Society. Living on the prairies offered the opportunity to own a horse. First came Taffy, then Max and finally Missy. She spent many happy hours riding with friends, helping friends gather cattle, and going on trail rides. She was a member of the Four Seasons Saddle Club and was secretary of the Medicine Hat Horse Show for years. At Evelyn’s request there will be no funeral service held.
