Evelyn Irene Rowsell was born to Elijah and Minnie Hannam at Hannam's Point, Leading Tickles, on December 15, 1927. Losing her father at the tender age of seven made life a hardship for Evelyn, her siblings, and her mother. Evelyn only received grade three education, mainly because she didn't have shoes to wear. In those short school years, she learned a lot. She saw much hardship. Losing three of her brothers and one step-sister at a very young age. Evelyn married her sweetheart on June 27, 1956. They were blessed with seven wonderful children. Her daily routine was caring for her children and making sure they received the basic necessities of life. Evelyn cared for her aging mother, mother-in-law and step-father. There was always a place at her table for her nieces and nephews or a bed as well. Evelyn was very outgoing and never let much grass grow under her feet. She lived a very fullfilling and rewarding life, to her final days.To send flowers to the family of Evelyn Rowsell, please visit Tribute Store
