Evelyn Louise Lockwood

Evelyn Louise Lockwood, age 94, of Mill Village, Queens County, passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 15,2020, in Queens Manor, Liverpool.
 Born September 24, 1926, in Mill Village, she was the daughter of the late Roy and Barbara (Lockwood) Anthony.  After working a few years in Halifax, she returned to Mill  Village and married Hugh Lockwood of Charleston.
She had a great love of music and taught herself to play the fiddle at the age of nine. Hugh played the guitar and many friends and relatives joined in for many evenings of fun.
She had many hobbies including painting in water colors and oil, her beautiful gardens, knitting and making dolls, many for family members, some donated to IWK and a dozen historical Gibson Dolls which have been donated and on display at the Queens  County Museum.  She will be well remembered  as leader of the Girls Explorer Group and many great times going on hikes, picnics and weekends at the family cabin on the Medway River, with all the girls.
She enjoyed her days of salmon fishing on the Medway and learned to shoot when she  belonged to the Liverpool Rifle Range. She and Hugh owned horses for a number of years and she  loved her jaunts up the back road on Biscuit. 
In 1970 she and Hugh purchased and operated the Mill Village General Store, now known as The River Bank.  Also during the next fifteen years she was elected Councillor for the Municipality of Queens and later Deputy Warden.  She was  chairman of the committee responsible for the construction of the Queens Manor and chairman of the committee which did the renovations at Hillsview Acres in Middlefield. She was a member of the Mill Village Fire Department Auxiliary for many years and a member of the Anglican Church.  
Nine years after her husband passed away she met Curtis Mahaney and they lived together in Churchover, Shelburne County for 24 years.  Curtis played the banjo and mom played the fiddle for many charities with local artists Jamie Cotter and Dave Burbine as well as on the ferry to PEI and at tourist sites where they wintered in Florida and at the University of Georgia with their friends there. She lived life to the fullest, was devoted to her family and had a great and generous heart to all who knew her.  She loved to play board games and cards but she also loved to win and when she wasn’t winning she would always let us know she was getting bored.
She is survived by her daughter Dollie Cole (Laurie Wamboldt) Mill Village, granddaughter Kim Crouse (Lawrence Cunningham) Milton, step-grandaughter Shawna Hall, Maine, great grandchildren Ashley, Bradley, Erin and Cole, great-great grandchildren Bentley, Nevaeh, Dawson, Paisley and Allie and sister-in-law Naomi Anthony and many loving nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her husband Hugh, infant daughters Heather and Jewel, sisters Isabel White, Barbara Coles, Marjorie Linden, Marilyn Conrad, brothers Arthur, Vernon and Carmen Anthony and step-mother Mary Anthony.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers Funeral Home. A private graveside service will be held at a later date at Mill Village Cemetery with Reverend Peter Anthony officiating. Donations may be made to charity of choice. Condolences can be made to www.chandlersfuneral.com.
Many thanks from our family to the staff at Queens Manor and to Dr. Ernest and Dr. Woodford for their care and compassion during the last few years of mom’s life.
