It is with sadness the family of Evelyn Cornell announces her passing on August 3, 2022, at the age of 91. Born and raised in St. Boswell, SK before moving to Moose Jaw in 1942 where she attended Central Collegiate. She went on to work at CIBC before leaving to be a stay-at-home mom. She married Kenneth Cornell on August 4, 1951, and they were married 71 years less one day. Together they raised four children and suffered the loss of eldest son David in 1960. Evelyn was a wonderful wife, mother and grandma. Nothing was more important to Evelyn than her family and she was always our biggest source of love and support. She was predeceased by her son David, parents James and Elizabeth Baird, brother Jim (Helen) Baird, sister Marguerite (Robert) Livesey, and brother-in-law Jim Thomas. She is survived by her sister Jean Thomas; husband Ken; daughters Nancy (Randy) McCurdy, Sheila (Garth) Timoruski, and son John Cornell; grandchildren Adam (Nastashia), Mitchell (Kim), Morgan (Stacy), Kyle (Stevie), Abby (Tyler), Jesse (Shana), Drake (Bridget), Katelyn (Tyson) as well as eleven great grandchildren. A Private Celebration of Evelyn’s life will be held. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to the Moose Jaw Humane Society. In living memory of Evelyn, a memorial planting will be made by W.J. Jones & Son Ltd.
