On March 9, 2024, Louise Evaschesen, surrounded by family, passed away at the age
of 83. Louise is survived by her daughters Jaclyn and Donalee, sons-in-law Wayne
Warkentin and Dave Sharratt, and blessed grandchildren Walker Warkentin, Emily
Sharratt and Ryder Sharratt.

She is also survived by her sister Pat (Murray Frost), in-laws Vic Peters, Elizabeth
(Murray Burt), Beth Evaschesen, June Evaschesen, Jeannie (Chris Brewer), Alice (Neil
Marvin) and her precious nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Louise was predeceased by her husband, Michael, parents, John and Louie Delarue,
and sister, Vicki Peters.

Louise was born in Eston, Saskatchewan and grew up in Grand Coulee, and later,
Regina. She graduated from Teacher’s College in Moose Jaw, and later, from the
University of Manitoba with a B.Ed.

In 1960, she married Michael, and they spent 56 beautiful years together. They lived in
Regina, then Saskatoon, before settling in Winnipeg. This became their home, where
they built (and she re-built) their dream home.

Louise was a devoted teacher, principal and Assistant Superintendent with Seven Oaks
School Division. Her students were her priority and her colleagues became family. Every
day brought new inspiration, and each challenge was met with collaboration and a
child-centred approach.

Throughout her life, she found ways to brighten her community as a board member with
CWHA, WASO, the Seven Oaks Hospital, eventually serving as Chair. She was active
in the Atlantic-Garden City United Church, Commonwealth Society and Legion Branch
215 Cribbage when she wasn’t working in her beautiful garden, entertaining dear
friends, or travelling with family. Party-planning could have been Louise’s second
calling. Her eye for decorations made holidays, banquets, weddings, and Grey Cup
parties spectacular!

Thank you to each friend and family member who cared for her in this difficult time. Your
love will never be forgotten. Remember Louise next time you see a bird, a flower, or
have coffee and a scone with a friend. Celebrate the little moments like a blue sky after
the rain, or a friend’s call. She found no task too big or too small, and did it all with joy.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Seven Oaks Education Foundation or
Seven Oaks Hospital Foundation in her memory.

A celebration of Louise’s life will be held on Sunday, May 19, 2024 at 1:00pm at Cropo
Funeral Chapel on 1442 Main Street, Winnipeg.
