Evelyn (Evie) Chatters
Evie Chatters, 70, of Jarvie Alberta passed away Thursday, August 29, 2019 in St. Albert, Alberta. Mom was born July 24, 1949 in Westlock, Alberta to parents Patrick and Hyacinth Makey. She married David Chatters in 1969 and they raised two sons Gary and Matt (Andrea) on the family farm west of Jarvie.
She is survived by her older brothers Patrick (Deloris) and Tom (Gloria) and twin sister Erna (Grant) McGillivray. She will be sadly missed by her grandsons Cody and Calder and great granddaughter Evie and many nieces and nephews.
Mom had deep roots in the Jarvie community and developed cherished, lifelong friendships. Visits she had with her close friends brought her great joy. She took particular pride in her flower gardens and pots and despite her health challenges she maintained a beautiful yard and a meticulous house. Mom was fiercely independent and an incredibly strong woman. I’m proud she did it her way even though it seemed she always chose the hard way: her way.
A memorial service has been set for the Jarvie Community Center September 7, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. The family insists that in lieu of sending flowers, donations be made to the Jarvie Community Council.
