Obituary of Evelyn Anna Haffey

Haffey, Evelyn Anna It is with great sadness that the family of Evelyn Anna Haffey announces her passing on Tuesday, January 4, 2022 in Mississauga, Ontario, at the age of 90 years. She was pre-deceased in July 2020 by her husband of 51 years, Peter Joseph Michael Haffey. She was also pre-deceased by her siblings Clément, Marcel, André, Emma, and Léa. Evelyn will be lovingly remembered by her son David, her daughter-in-law Jennifer, and her siblings Cécille, Jeanne, Simone, Olivier, and their families. Evelyn was born in Fisher Branch, Manitoba on October 12, 1931 to Zélia and Wilbrod Meilleur and was the eldest sister of 10 children. She worked on the family farm before moving to Toronto to study nursing. It was there she married Peter and gave birth to their son, David. Her kindness and compassion would later lead her to volunteer for the Canadian Blood Services, which she was involved with for over 20 years. Our deepest gratitude to the wonderful staff at Cawthra Gardens, Evelyn's home for the last two years. Your kindness will never be forgotten. A memorial Mass will be held for Evelyn on Thursday, January 20, 2022 at 10:30 a.m. at Holy Cross Parish, 14400 Argyll Rd, Georgetown, with Father David Walter presiding.
