After ehr marriage to Lorne Hefflefinger, the family eventually moved to the Edmonton area, and when the Western Field-based Diaconal Program began at St. Stephen’s College, Evie was ready for it. After commissioning to diaconal ministry in 1984 she worked in a congregation, at the Adult Learning Centre, and with the Prostitution Awareness and Action Foundation.  Evie was diagnosed with MS and as it progressed, she was unable to continue working. Conversations with Evie always revealed the value of family and friends, a passion for life, and a passion for social ministry.  (Memorial prepared by Dorothy Naylor)
