Evelyn, Ruby Hayter



(nee Preston)

On June 12th, 2014, Evelyn Ruby Hayter, born July 3rd, 1919 in Turtleford, Saskatchewan, passed away peacefully at Haven Hill Retirement Centre in Penticton. Evelyn was predeceased by her husband, Cecil Hayter; brothers, Clarence and Lawrence; granddaughter, Krissy; grandson, Myron; son in law, Dennis Ewanchuk and great grandson, Aaron Derbyshire. She is survived by her two brothers, Lyle and Lloyd; sons, Marvin (Sandy), Ken (Margaret), Don (Ilona) and Daryl (Cynthia); daughters, Sylvia (Norman) Fretz, Valerie (Ken) Doty, Marlene (Mike) Keen and Sandra Ewanchuk (special friend, Garry). Evelyn is also survived by 16 grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren. Though she spent her last few years under great care at Haven Hill, Evelyn’s home was always Kaleden. She was an endlessly kind and giving woman who was an incredible mother to her community as well as her children. Her door was always open to family, friends, and anyone in need. She never passed judgment on a single soul, and her company was as comforting as the smell of her homemade bread. Evelyn bettered the lives of everyone she knew, and she will be forever missed and fondly remembered by all who knew her. A Celebration of Evelyn’s life will be held on Friday, June 20th at the Bethel Pentecostal Church, 945 Main St., Penticton at 1:30 p.m. Interment will follow at Kaleden Cemetery, after which a reception will be held at Linden Gardens. Memorial Tributes may be directed to Penticton & District Hospice Society.
