Peacefully at The Village of Glendale Crossing, London with family by her side, on Saturday, December 7, 2019, formerly of Exeter, at the age of 88. Beloved wife of the late Arthur Walkom (1978). Cherished mom of Kathryn Walkom and Chauncey Durkin of Toronto, and Carolyn Walkom and Robert Newhook of London. Proud and adored grandma of Mackenzie McKim. Dear sister and sister-in-law of Helen Dalby of Kingston, Iva Bell of Stratford, and Nelson Walkom of London. Evelyn will be remembered by many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by Margaret Beardshaw, Harold Albright, Ruby Turner, and David Albright.
Evelyn and Arthur spent many years in the Exeter area, before Evelyn moved to London. She was so proud of her family and their accomplishments. Her smile and love will be dearly missed by everyone who knew her. The family wishes to thank all of the staff at The Village of Glendale Crossing, in particular the Pond Mills group for all of their care and compassion shown to Evelyn during her stay.
At Evelyn’s request, cremation has taken place. A Celebration of her Life will be held at a later date. Private family interment has taken place at the Exeter Cemetery.
Donations to the Alzheimer Society of London-Middlesex would be appreciated by the family.
