It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Irene Evelyn “Ev” Wills at Lloydminster Hospital, Lloydminster, SK on June 14 at the age of 86 years, just ten days shy of her 87th birthday.

Ev was predeceased by: her husband, Robert (Bob) Wills, parents, Martin and Viola Person; and her brother and sister-in law, Bob and Audrey Person.

Ev was born in Lloydminster and went to school in Lloydminster area. Her greatest joy was her family. She made everyone feel like the favorite. Being an excellent cook she showed her love through cooking big meals and baking special treats. She never failed to ask what she could bring to family dinners and was usually told “buns”. Ev enjoyed many friendships as well, welcoming people into her life with open arms and her big heart. Ev was a very active participant in her husband’s cattle buying business and shared his passion for horses and chuckwagon racing. She will be remembered as an avid card player and a great listener. We will miss her greatly.
