Evangeline Payne

May 25, 1923 – March 26, 2021



It is with unbearable sadness that the family of Evangeline (Lean) Payne (nee Caines) announce her passing on March 26th, 2021 surrounded by her adoring family at the Palliative Care unit in Corner Brook. Formerly of Belldowns Point, NL, Evangeline spent most of her life living in the Corner Brook area where she raised the most wonderful family she could have ever hoped for. Her smile, laugh, hugs, kisses, superstitions, stories, dedication to her faith, and the love of her family will forever live on in the memories of everyone who knew her.

She left behind her flock of dedicated followers, her family – children: Grant (Ella), Cyril (Sandra), Milton (Amanda), Ingraham (Suzanne) and Dianne (John Sweetapple), special nephew: Richard (Marilyn) , grandchildren: Phyllis, Brian (Michelle), Jeff (Kim), Sheldon (Stacy), Michael (Tara), Cherie (James), Rochelle (Clayton), Robin (Mike), Heather (Josh), Julie (Glen), Bradley (Nikita) and Jeremy, great grandchildren: Bryce, Landis, Decker, Rachel, Maddox, Carley, Ethan, Jacob, Addison, Liam, Emma, Kyle, Hayley, and Caleb, sisters: Elizabeth Hiscock and Ula Payne and a large group of nieces, nephews, friends and family.

“Lean” was predeceased by her parents: Eliza Jane and Martin Caines, her husband: Leonard (Len) Payne, daughter: Agnes (Aggie), brothers: John, Wilson, Fred, and Martin, and sisters: Dorothy and Bertha.

The family would like to thank Dr. Tim Griffin, Shelley Taylor and the staff at Mountainview Estates, Dr. Ntambwe and the staff in the Emergency Department at WMRH, and Dr. Lafferty and the staff in the Palliative Care Unit at the Western Long Term Care Home.

I am not dead, just sleeping here.

I am not thou alone, Christ love me best

And took me home in his arms to rest.”
