Obituary

Peacefully, surrounded by family, Evelyn passed in her 98th year. Evelyn now joins her loving husband Norman, leaving children Jack, Douglas and (Bruna), Elaine and (Stephan Bartolini), beloved grandchildren Christopher, Vanessa and (Brian King), Tara and (Jeffrey Carlson), Alana and (Nathan Clark) and cherished great granddaughter Camille.

Evelyn was born in Toronto in 1923 into a large Irish family. Weekends were spent travelling by train and then horse and carriage to family farms in King Township. Through her large extended family she learned many life skills; she could pluck a chicken, sew a dress and play the piano, just to start with.

Evelyn and Norman met at Sunnyside Pool when they were both 14 yrs old and he was the love of her life. After returning from the second world war Norman suffered from undiagnosed PTSD. Evelyn's unwavering love, compassion and support throughout their marriage helped Norman become a successful man and father. Together they travelled the world, they laughed, they danced and they raised a family with joy and devotion.

Before becoming a wife and mother Evelyn had a short but successful career in accounting which served her well. She managed her own books and investing, only agreeing to have her taxes done by her financial advisor well into her 90's.

Evelyn's keen interests in current affairs kept her engaged and always relevant. A love of reading novels, newspapers and magazines, made discussions on politics, investing, cooking, decor, fashion and one of her favourite topics the Royals, fun and interesting.

Music was essential in her life. Piano became second nature to her and she would happily accompany Norm when he would sing and dance in their younger years. Her music collection ranged from Ella Fitzgerald and Tony Bennett to her new favourite Lady Gaga. The latest musicians were a great topic with her grandchildren.

Her lifelong commitment to the United Church community and many charities kept her busy where she made many good friends. She loved running the charity fashion show!

When entertaining family and friends, Evelyn sported the latest fashion, accessorized with colourful jewelry and with a smile she would say,

"Would you like a cup of tea?"

We would like to acknowledge the staff of St. Joseph's Villa in Dundas. The commitment and kindness of the nurses and PSW's especially during these difficult days was inspiring.

A private family service will be held.

Elaine,
What a beautiful tribute to your mom. She had a wonderful and fulfilling life.
I will always remember Mrs. Bruce as laughing and smiling. No matter what the occasion was , your mom was always dressed up in a pretty outfit and flashy jewels.
I know she will be missed, but letting you know I am thinking about you and family.
