In Loving Memory of
It is with great sorrow and grief that we announce the death of Evelyn May Morin, age 97, who passed away peacefully January 21, 2021. She was born Dec 17, 1923 in Timmins, Ontario to Victor and Gertrude Knott. She eventually married her husband Larry Morin, who preceded her in death in November of 1980.
Evelyn lived a long, sometimes arduous, yet fruitful life. She was a kind soul always putting the concerns of others, especially her family, above her own. Early in her life, she developed a love for sports, both as a spectator and as a participant that endured for the whole of her life. Evelyn was an accomplished baseball, basketball and tennis player, winning many championships and tournaments throughout Northern Ontario and as always, she was humble in victory or defeat. Later in life, she developed a love for golf which she fostered and instilled in two of her grandchildren.
Evelyn was also somewhat of a pioneer for her time, working at Hydro until she started her nurturing life as a mother. She later returned to the work force as a valued team member at The New Tin Shop where she continued to work until her retirement in the early 90s.
She was the loving mother of Keith (Charlene) of Timmins, Janice (Yvan) of Hearst, Gary (Paula) of Timmins, and Brian of Vancouver. Cherished grandmother to Lindsay Toby (John), Rylan Kirley (Amy Roskell), Spencer Skowronski (Kailey), Kellen Morin (Lisa), Amy Lecompte (Jason Williams), Jennifer Lecompte, Erin Lecompte (Jon Coopper), Garett Morin (Kathleen Cloutier), Kyra Morin, and Darryl Morin. Great grandmother to Alexis, Octavian, Onaj, Piper, Cecily, Nolan, Coleson, Joey, Jack, and Gabriel.
Evelyn is also survived by her sister, Shirley St. Jacques (Rusty), as well as many nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by brothers Alvin, Ernie, and Earl Knott, sister Margaret McLean, great grandson Baby Jaxon, and granddaughter-in-law Shannon.
The family wishes to express a heartfelt thank you to the entire staff of Extendicare, Kamiskotia section, and to Dr. DiTullio for taking such good care of mom. Your kind gestures will not go unnoticed.
As Evelyn wished, there will be no formal service. She will be interred alongside her loving husband in the spring. We will always remember her sacrifices and her unyielding love for those around her, especially her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Remembrance donations to the Alzheimer's Society would be greatly appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to Stinson Funeral Home, 100 Bruce Avenue, (705) 235-2900 www.stinsonfuneralhome.net
