MEEK, Evelyn Zadora (neé Einboden)

January 03, 1921 – November 04, 2011

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, sister and friend. Evelyn will be lovingly remembered by her sons; Gerald (Debbie) and Barry (Sylvia), of Kitwanga, B.C., five grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren and by her sister Gwen Wheatley of Calgary. Sadly, she was predeceased by her husband Barney in 1994, her father Martin in 1963, her mother Christina in 1988 (neé Gunnarson), sisters; Joyce Bayes, Edith McMahon and her brother Ted. Evelyn was born in Minnedosa, Manitoba before moving to Toronto where she finished her schooling and started a career in bookkeeping and accounting. She met Barney Meek at work and waited four years for him to return from WW II before marrying him in Edmonton in 1947. Working in the mining industry, they would move to Wells, BC where they would raise their family until the early 1950’s when they moved to Hazelton Kitwanga area. After retiring, they moved to the Okanagan Valley in the 1980’s, Cawston & Penticton, and would spend their winters in Arizona. Evelyn enjoyed doing crafts but her favourite sport was golfing. Private family arrangements have been made. Messages of condolence may be sent to the family c/o hansonsfuneral.com
