She entered into her eternal life at Royal University Hospital, Saskatoon, SK, on September 20, 2013, at the sweet elegant age of 86. Evelyn was born near Pilger, SK, on June 4, 1927. On November 8, 1948, she married the love of her life, John Pomedli, at St. Bernard's Church, Pilger. Together they raised 11 children. They ran a mixed-farming operation near Pilger and retired to Humboldt in 1992.
