Evelyn Mabel Barnes of Medicine Hat, beloved wife of the late Ian Barnes, passed away on Sunday, April 26th, 2020 at the age of 79 years. Evelyn leaves to cherish her memory her son, Darcy (Patricia) Barnes; grandchildren, Derek (Tanya) Barnes, Brandi Harvey (Corey Wesson), and Rob (Kim) Pittman; great-grandchildren, Samantha, Jaden, William, Owen and Wesley; sister, Linda (John) Mackintosh; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her loving husband of more that 40 years, Ian; parents, John “Jack” and Lea Pogmore; grandson, Steven Kroeger; and sister, Trudy Powell. Evelyn was born on June 11th, 1940 in Edmonton, AB. Her family moved to Calgary and she attended school there and then she got her first job working for AGT. After marrying Ian, Evelyn spent the next 46 years on the farm with her husband and their son, learning to drive tractor, haul grain, and being a helpmate. She enjoyed all the clubs that she was in, Community Club, Hall Board, the United Church, and held several Board positions over the years. She was especially proud of the two history books that she helped complete for the Bindloss Community as well as a book for the school. Evelyn’s health began to decline in January 2001 and she was told that she would require a liver transplant. She was very grateful to receive that transplant a short time after. When she celebrated her 40th wedding anniversary with Ian they requested donations to the Southern Alberta Transplant Program and to Medic-Air. They successfully raised $2700.00. After her retirement and Ian’s passing, Evelyn filled her days with family, volunteering at the Chinook Village Cornerstore and crocheting items to donate to various charities. She made a lot of very good friends and will be dearly missed by all those who knew and loved her. Evelyn has kindly asked, “If you have it in your hearts sign your donor card and help save lives. Because someone did, I have had 19 years added onto my life.” Her family would like to say a special thank you to the staff at Chinook Village for their friendship, kindness and support throughout the years. Also, a special thank you to the home care team for their special care. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Donations in Evelyn’s memory can be made to Canadian Liver Foundation, Suite #309, 1010 – 1st Avenue NE, Calgary, AB T2E 7W7 or to the Alberta Heart & Stroke Foundation, 200, 119 – 14th Street NW, Calgary, AB T1A 7L5. Condolences may be sent through or to subject heading Evelyn Barnes.

One of my favourite aunts!! I’ll remember her smile and sparkling eyes and yummy meals! Sleeping upstairs in an old single bed with a quilt (maybe on the wall) with all the provincial flags) when I visited the farm in Bindloss! I remember her calling my uncle Ian ‘Pa’ and their visits to Richmond when I was younger. I’m proud of her and how she was one of the first liver transplant recipients. Love and fond memories to the family!!!❤️❤️❤️

We extend our sincere condolences to your entire family in the loss of Evelyn. We are saddened to hear of her passing.
As a school bus driver at the time and living at Cavendish, I would stop at the local store in Bindloss, My most fond memory of Evelyn was that she would greet you with a smile and would assist in any way possible. She was a very kind and sincere lady!
Charlie has fond memories of working with Ian that goes as far back as some 64 years; Charlie was 17 years old at the time, Ian taught him how to operate a Caterpillar and scraper - they socialized and spent lots of good times together!

My Deepest Condolences to All! I was very saddened to hear of Evelyn's passing. Evelyn was a dear friend for many years and I cherished her friendship like no other. She was a wonderful person who had a gruff exterior some times but the hugest heart of gold anyone could have, I was very fortunate to have kept in touch with her over the years and although we only were able to visit occasionally it was always as if we had never been apart when we did get together. Love you always my "Special Sister" May God Rest Your Soul.
