On Monday, September 7, 2020 Evelyn Mary Chalmers (nee: Wludyka) passed away peacefully with her family by her side at the Mackenzie Health Richmond Hill Hospital in her 85th year. Beloved partner of Larry French. Cherished mother to Derek and Michelle (Steve) Chalmers. Loving grandmother to Andrew, Ryan, Brett and Kaitlyn. Survived by her siblings Charlotte (Ernie) and Walter “Butch” (Helen). Predeceased by her sisters Eileen, Dolly and Clara. Evelyn will be lovingly remembered by her many nieces and nephews, extended family and many friends. Evelyn was devoted to her children and grandchildren. They were the world to her. She loved supporting them at their sporting events, baking special treats on holidays and always sending cards with loving messages. Evelyn enjoyed knitting, reading, dancing, swimming and spending time in Niagara with Larry. Evelyn worked many years at York University. She was a landlord with Larry of an apartment building in the “Hill” until her passing.

Evelyn had so much love to give. I don't know if you recall, Larry and Michelle, that she gave me a candy dish. I already had one just like it but she wanted me to have a pair. She also gave to each Michael and I, a little chest. We have them both on display. Such a special lady. We love her and will miss her very, very much. .
