Evelyn Florence (nee Haynes) Hyde

HYDE, Evelyn Florence (nee Haynes) - Evelyn Florence Hyde, in her 100th year, formerly of Arden Park, Stratford, passed away peacefully at Spruce Lodge on Wednesday, January 30, 2019. Born in Stratford, she was the daughter of the late William and Elizabeth Haynes. Beloved wife of the late Alvin Hyde (2002), whom she married on August 2, 1947. Loved mother of Gerry Hyde and his wife Leslie (Guelph), Don Hyde and his wife Fatima Alves (Etobicoke) and Diane Woelfle and her husband Kevin (London).

Survived by two sisters Helen MacDonald and Irene McLeish. Predeceased by two brothers Charles and Bill and a sister Daisy. Evelyn lived with a zest for life - homemaker supreme - canner of relish and jam - crafty with ceramics and crochet - a wicked lefthander in bowling and baseball and a lover of music, dancing and piano. Evelyn also enjoyed her 15 years of ushering at the Stratford Festival. Heartfelt thanks to all the staff at Woodland Towers and Spruce Lodge for all their wonderful care over many years. Visitation at the W.G. Young Funeral Home, 430 Huron St., Stratford on Sunday, February 3, 2019 from 2-5 p.m. and at the Griffith Auditorium at Woodland Towers, 639 West Gore St., Stratford on Monday, February 4 from 12 noon until the time of the funeral service at 1 p.m., followed by a reception.
