In loving memory of the late Evelyn Mary Toulouse, born January 23, 1938.  Passed away peacefully at the Wikwemikong Nursing Home

Evelyn lived a simple independent  life.  She was hard working, lived on the Toulouse Homestead all of her life, farming, making preserves, gardening, harvesting maple syrup.  She enjoyed knitting, quilting and making
birch bark quillwork.  One of her quill box was recently included in the “Quill Boxes from Mnidoo Mnising Exhibition” at Carleton University Art Gallery in Ottawa on May 2018.  In her younger years, she worked at the Little Current Hospital in the housekeeping department.  Evelyn had a strong faith with her Catholic beliefs.  She always walked to and from church for Sunday service.  Her pastime was spent watching hockey and football and playing cards especially “war”.
