Obituary of Evelyne Violet Steenburgh

Steenburgh, Evelyne Violet

Evelyne Steenburgh (née Outwater), peacefully, at Broadview Long Term Care, Smiths Falls, on Wednesday, April 10, 2019, a few days after marking her 100th birthday with family and friends.

Beloved wife and best friend of the late Stuart Wesley Steenburgh. Loved and loving mother of Elizabeth (H. W. Alden) Stuart (Cathy), David (Viki), Craig (Cathy), and Mark (Ann); and dear family friend Heather Friesen. Proud grandmother of twelve, and great-grandmother to twenty-one, she will also be fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews, and kept in the hearts of her many friends. A woman of great energy and faith, Evelyne was active in her church throughout her life, with a special devotion to children and supporting missions overseas. She loved flowers, and was renowned for the beauty of her summer garden. Sharp, witty and outgoing to her final days, Evelyne was a keen follower of politics; a staunch defender of animals large and small; and always, always ready to laugh.

Friends are invited to visit with the family at the Lannin Funeral Home, Smiths Falls, on Monday, April 15, 2019 from 10 AM to 12 PM. A Memorial Service will be held at the funeral home at 12 PM. A Celebration of Life will take place immediately following the service at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 95, Smiths Falls. As expressions of sympathy donations to the Salvation Army, the Alzheimer Society, the Ottawa Mission, or a charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated by the family.
