KUSMIRE L. Evelyn Isabel (nee Muirhead) March 19, 1924 – February 3, 2008 It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Evelyn Kusmire at the age of 83 years. Mum was born and raised in Estevan, SK and lived in the Estevan area, B.C., Weyburn and Red Deer.  She was educated in Estevan and graduated from the Grey Nuns nursing school, Regina in 1945.  She worked in the nursing profession all her working life.

Mum was always active with her family and friends.  She loved macramé, needle point, petite point, knitting and one of her biggest loves was playing cards.  She loved camping, boating and swimming with her children and grandchildren.
