Evelyn was born to Kuzma and Mary (nee Smith) Zamikousky near Perdue, SK. She married Henry Thole in October 1956. Together, Evelyn and Henry farmed in the LeRoy district and raised a family of nine, four sons and five daughters. As well as being a busy homemaker, Evelyn planted and harvested a huge garden, raised and sold chickens, and spent innumerable hours in the kitchen cooking and baking, which she loved. No one ever left her house hungry. In 1986, Evelyn and Henry moved to Humboldt, where she did a lot of babysitting for many families. In her leisure time, Evelyn enjoyed doing crafts, quilting, and knitting, which Henry helped her with by casting on. She also loved collecting spoons and teacups, and going on road trips with Henry to visit family and sightsee in Canada and the United States. More than anything, Evelyn loved her family and enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren. Her grandkids loved the care parcels at Christmas with banana bread, cookies, squares, buns, perogies, and cabbage rolls. Evelyn will be remembered for her smile, the twinkle in her eyes even when she was sick, and how she was always there to help or support those who may have needed it.
