Nov 21, 1931 – Apr 15, 2018
It is with profound sadness that the family of Evelyn Brykaliuk announce her passing. Evelyn was born on
November 21, 1931 in Rossburn, Manitoba and passed on April 15, 2018. She was 86.
Evelyn was a spirited woman who loved her walks, gardening, baking and having coffee with friends and family. She was affectionally known around town as ‘the Chocolate Lady” because of her generous nature to hand out chocolates to everyone she would meet throughout her day.
Evelyn was predeceased by her parents, Joseph and Nellie Maydaniuk, husband Nicolas Brykaliuk, grandson Shaun Donaldson, and son-in-law Mike Newell.
She will be lovingly remembered by her long time partner, Gerald Clark, her daughters Marlene (Alan) Law, Patricia Newell, Shirley (Len) Donaldson, Susan (Perry) Creguer, Gail (Harry) Gelowitz, Doris Parsons
(Craig), and her numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
The family wishes to thank Dr. William Brown and the staff at Invermere & District Hospital for caring for our mother with dignity and respect.
As per Evelyn’s wishes, there will not be a funeral. A private family gathering will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to the Canadian Heart Foundation.
