Janet Evelyn Becker


December 4th, 2005

Known to all her many friends as Evelyn and to many members of her family as Mrs. B. This wonderful lady passed away peacefully during the night on December 4th, 2005 at Finlay Pavilion at the Peace Arch Hospital in White Rock, B.C. at the age of 93. Evelyn was born on July 12th, 1912 in Coleman, Alberta and moved to Nelson, B.C. in 1930. When practicing as a registered nurse she met her future husband Frank F. Becker and moved to Vernon in 1940 where they made their home and life together. Frank was Mayor of Vernon from 1955 to 1961 and passed away in April of 1973. Evelyn is survived by her only daughter Valerie and son-in-law David Brown who brought her to White Rock in 1999 to be in their home for a number of years after she was injured from a fall. She was sadly unable to return to her home in Vernon and was admitted to Finlay in March of 2003 where she received tremendous care and was well looked after. She will be warmly remembered by the other members of the immediate family which include her grandchildren, Craig and (Reagan) Brown, Leanne and (Bruce) MacKenzie and her adored great grandchildren Justin and Ryan MacKenzie. Her bright smile and engaging manner was appreciated by all who knew her and her family will hold a memorial to her memory at White Rock in the very near future. There will be no service and funeral arrangements have been made with Avalon-Surrey Funeral Home. The Family has requested no flowers.
