Evelyn M. Onofryszyn passed away peacefully at the Red Deer Hospice embraced by her family on December 20, 2013 at the age 79. She faced the end of her journey with the same strength and dignity as she lived her life. Evelyn was born in Calgary on May 7, 1934 to Edgar and Martha Smale. She moved with her family to the Gilby area where she grew up. On May 9, 1952, she was united in marriage to Jarvis Onofryszyn and moved to his family farm at Eckville, where she continued to live until her passing.

Over the years, she was committed to St. Paul's Presbyterian Church, Eckville Hospital Board, 4-H, the Eckville Manor House Board, Eckville Chamber of Commerce, The PC Party, and many other community initiatives. Our mother was a hard working partner on the farm, but still had a busy career as manager of Blindman Valley Propane Co-op for forty years. Later in her life she became a marriage commissioner, which was another role she greatly enjoyed. Evelyn was known to be gracious, diligent, capable, ambitious, wise and a role model for many. Evelyn Onofryszyn is survived by four daughters Elaine (Len) Engen, Sharon (Dave) Lemke, Noreen Stuart, and Karen Burnand as well as special family members Gordon (Carmen) Butcher and Drew Burnand; her grandchildren, Trent (Pam) Engen, Nicole (Justin) Obst, Trisha (Ryan) Rigler, Nathan (Carrie) Lemke, Carolyn (Jared) Engel, Cameron Stuart, Rebecca Burnand, Vanessa and Blair Butcher.
