 Evelyn Robbins (nee Rudd)

1925 - 2017 

Evelyn Rudd was born December 24, 1925 to Clarence and Margaret Rudd of the Shadeland district. She was the eldest daughter of eight children. She married Clayton Robbins in 1948 and they raised three children, Myrna, Linda and Larry. Ev enjoyed gardening, dancing to old time music, bingo and handiwork. Her eight grandchildren and eleven great grandchildren were the light of her life. 

Ev died Monday October 1, 2017 at Boundary Trails Health Centre. The family is grateful for the care provided by Home Care staff and Palliative Care on the medical ward, Dr. Donna Neufeld and the compassionate visits from volunteers with the comfort cart who provided family with numerous cups of tea and coffee for snacks. 

A private family graveside service will take place, as per Ev’s request. If anyone wishes to make a donation in Ev’s memory, they may do so to the Boundary Trails Health Centre Foundation and the family would be appreciative.

Linda and Dennis, Larry and Jo-Anne, your families and the Robbins /Rudd relatives,
I just heard of your Mum's passing. My thoughts and sincere sympathy is with everyone at this time. I know your many memories of your Mum, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother will sustain you during this time. To this day I am grateful that Ev was such a great 4-H leader. Because of her I learned to sew, knit, crochet, and enjoy all kinds of handicrafts. She taught many girls how to march in a parade and do it well ! Her abilities as a cook were an asset and some of her recipes are still our family favourites. Clayton and Ev were great friends and neighbours to our family. Mum continued to enjoy Ev's friendship until her passing. Our lives were indeed richer for her presence.

So sorry for your loss, Ev was a dear friend of my mother in law (Carol Klein). I had visited her many times with Carol and shared her love of whipped shortbread (which I have her recipe) and she made all 3 of my children afghans.. Always in our memories..
