Tony /Marlene Bedard.
To all of Evalines family ..we are so sorry for the loss of your loved one.
On October 31,1957 my family moved from London to Exeter. I clearly remember being part of a lovely family gathering that evening at the Whiting home just around the corner from our new home on Main Street.
I came to love this family, full of wonderful brothers and sisters, always a house full of love. Ev was always there, feeding us, caring for her little ones as well as the many neighbourhood children that congregated in that happy home.
Every summer Linda and I had a little house in the lower branches of a lilac bush where we spent many hours playing happily.
I remember the day that baby Faye came home. She was the tiniest bundle all wrapped in pink. Ev placed her on the sofa and we excitedly ran in circles ( this house was designed so we could run through every room- round and round) Larry was younger than Linda and I and he was so exhausted from running that he plopped down on the sofa, just missing baby Faye!
I spent 100’s of hours in this lovely home, enjoying dinners, so many sleepovers and making unforgettable childhood memories.
Thank you Ev for your love and care.
My sincere sympathy to all, I know there is now a large hole in your hearts. Your Mom was a perfect Mom.
You are in my prayers,
JoAnne (Burke) Hodgins

Very sorry Faye and Dwight to hear of the passing of your dear Mother. Please accept my condolences to you and your family.
She was a great women, although I have not seen her for a few years or a lot of the family i think of the Whitings often. Who ever took care visited her in her last years congrat. We’ve seen a cardinal at our house the last couple days. May have been a message from John. Sorry for your loss.
