Evelyn Matilda Burch
Evelyn Matilda Burch (nee Baker) passed away at Northumberland Hills Hospital in Cobourg on Tues., Dec. 13, 2016 in her 99th year. Her loving family was by her side as she went peacefully knowing she was well loved.
Evelyn was known for her tireless commitment and dedication to Inner Wheel, the Canadian Cancer Society, the Red Cross, and the Port Hope Hospital Auxiliary. She was the ultimate Blue Jays fan, recording every pitch, hit, error, and she especially loved ringing the bell for runs earned!
She was the beloved wife of the late Austin Burch. She was the loving mother of David (Carol) of Georgia, Peter of Port Hope, and the late John (Chris) of Toronto. She was the loving grandmother of Wendy Jones (Matt), Heather Gordon (Nick), Christopher (Emily), and Sarah Hurst (Daniel). Evelyn was the eldest of the three Baker sisters of Winchester. Her sisters, Dorothy Morphy and Violet Johnstone, predeceased her. She will be greatly missed by her nieces, Carol Holmes Guitard of Mountain, Judy Nicol of Maberly, and Nancy Morphy-Nichol of Toronto, and nephews and friends, including everyone that supported her the last several years that enabled her to remain in her own home.
Private services will be held at a later date.
