It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Evelyn "Evie" Corinne Mayne, age 93, of Amherst. Evelyn passed away at the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre, surrounded by her loving family on April 16, 2022.
Born in Springhill, NS, she was the daughter of the late Corey and Grace (Wood) Moore.
The focus of Mum's life revolved around her family and friends. She was an active volunteer in the community for many years. She was a member of the United Church of Canada, Riverside Red Cross, Four Seasons 4-H Club, Gathering of the Clans Festival, the Northumberland Hospital Association, and the East Cumberland Lodge.
Mum enjoyed quilting, needlework, ceramics, and cake decorating having made many beautiful cakes for showers and weddings in the community. She and Dad loved to dance and were a regular couple at dances in the area. A talented seamstress, she often made clothes for her daughters and she was a great fan of the Toni Home Permanent System, trying for many years to make her straight haired daughters have flowing curls.
Evie will be deeply missed by her daughter Debra Singh (Selvon) Guelph ON; and Patricia Colson, Amherst, NS; grandchildren Daniel Singh (Haidee Lam), Georgetown, ON, Joshua Singh, Kitchener, ON; grandson in law Randy Stiles, Fergus, ON, Matthew Colson (Megan McLeod), Amherst, NS and Jeremy Colson (Katelynn Gallagher), Amherst, NS; great grandchildren Julian, Darian and Preston Stiles, Noelle and Warren Singh, Abel and Arlo Colson.
She is also survived by her, "loved like a sister", niece Donna Boyd (Fred) Bridgetown, NS; her, "loved like a brother" cousin Sherman Adshade, Springhill, NS; and her dear sister-in-law Mary Moore Valley Road, NS, as well as many nieces and nephews and cousins.
She is predeceased by her husband of 70 years Donald Mayne; sisters Thelma (Norman) Thompson and Shirley (Carl) Higgs; her brother Dalton Moore and her beloved granddaughter Amy (Singh) Stiles.
At Evie's request, cremation has taken place and a family service will be held at a later date under the direction of the Jones Family Funeral Centre, 70 Church St., Amherst, NS (902-667-8777).
