Evan was born September 2, 1926 in Hanna, Alberta. In 1935, the Williams family moved to the Kirkcaldy district then in 1938 rented section 33-15-25W4 in the Alston area. In 1949 the Williams family purchased the J-J ranch located on the Little Bow River on the Alston road. Evan and Audrey continued to farm and live on section 33 until 1975 when they moved to live on the coulee of 05-15-25. In 1995, Evan and Audrey retired to Lethbridge.
Evan had many interests; one of his greatest pleasures was visiting and meeting people. Dad never minded picking up groceries at the Kirkcaldy store as crib games and visiting always occurred. He was a long time member of both the Vulcan and Champion Lions Club, serving as Zone Chairman and Deputy District Governor. He served as a delegate for the Alberta Wheat Pool for many years. He was also the first leader of the Champion 4-H Beef Club and the kids he led were always special to him. In his retirement he spent time woodworking and tinkering with anything to fix. He was always teased his new “office” in Lethbridge was Tim Hortons and many new friendships were developed there.
His grandchildren were his greatest joy, always proud to hear of their accomplishments. Granddad loved attending any of their school or sporting events and was never afraid to let the umpire know if he disagreed with the call. He enjoyed travelling and road trips, often hopping into the car if pie was at the end of the road. Trips to Ontario and summers in South Hampton with family and grandchildren were fond memories. One highlight of his life was a trip back to Wales to visit his father’s birthplace and farm.
He will be greatly missed by all his family and friends.
A private family Graveside Service will be held.
Family and friends are invited to a Come and Go Reception between 2:00pm and 4:00pm on Monday, August 12, 2013 at COUNTRY KITCHEN, 1715 Mayor Magrath Drive South, Lethbridge.

Dedicated wife, caring mother, loving Baba, kind friend to all, Anne passed away peacefully in her sleep on Saturday, July 13, 2013 at the age of 93.
She was born in 1919 in Lethbridge into a family of ten, five brothers and four sisters, grew up in the depression and met her husband Lionel in 1939 while he was in Lethbridge during basic training as a Medical Orderly.

Anne and Lionel enjoyed camping with the Good Sam Club, and were longtime members of the Westwinds Curling Club and Canyon Meadows Golf Club.
Anne was a perfectionist in the kitchen, never serving small portions. A favorite of many was “The Mound”. She would always greet you with a peppermint, and make you take a couple more for your pocket. Anne was married to her loving husband Lionel for 69 years who predeceased her in 2009.
Anne is survived by son Craig (Joan), grandchildren Tad (Caroline), Trevor, Lisa, five great grandchildren, many nieces and nephews and sister Hazel Atwood.
