Christine Caroline Evans

Christine Caroline Evans (nee Olson) passed away peacefully at Victoria General Hospital at 10:45pm on March 23rd. She was 74 years old. Born in Alberta on March 6, 1942, Christine came to Victoria to begin her more than thirty year career as a laboratory technologist. She is predeceased by her mother Mabel Olson, father Henry Olson, sisters Maude Fasick and Dorothy Knull and husband, Paul Michael Evans. She is lovingly remembered by her son, Jay Evans.

Christine loved art, gardening and being outdoors, she was a fearless cook and artist and had a quick wit and brilliant sense of humour. She had a deep sense of compassion, justice and integrity. Her generosity of spirit and kindness were very apparent to those who knew her. She will be dearly missed.

“There in the sheltered draw-bottom the wind did not blow very hard, but I could hear it singing its humming tune up on the level, and I could see the tall grasses wave. The earth was warm under me, and warm as I crumbled it through my fingers. Queer little red bugs came out and moved in slow squadrons around me. Their backs were polished vermilion, with black spots. I kept as still as I could. Nothing happened. I did not expect anything to happen. I was something that lay under the sun and felt it, like the pumpkins, and I did not want to be anything more. I was entirely happy. Perhaps we feel like that when we die and become a part of something entire, whether it is sun and air, or goodness and knowledge. At any rate, that is happiness; to be dissolved into something complete and great. When it comes to one, it comes as naturally as sleep.” – My Antonia, Willa Cather

A celebration of her life will be held at Royal Oak Burial Park Chapel, 4673 Falaise Drive on May 27, 2016 at 2:00 pm.
