Evelyn M. Tardif
Evelyn M. Tardif, 60, passed away unexpectedly, surrounded by her family, on Christmas Eve. She was born on May 30, 1960, the daughter of Alverie and Irene (Lavoie) Tardif.
Evelyn was not only well educated, but also a woman of faith. She loved with her entire being, always filling her friends and family with love and laughter. Evelyn was a proud Veteran of the United States Army and she loved her country. Evelyn was happiest when with her family, friends and traveling. She was dedicated to the students she taught and made an impact wherever she went. She transitioned from teaching to the career she was most proud of with the Customs and Border Patrol, where she continued to serve the country she loved. Though she never had children, she loved all her nephews and nieces as they were her own. She passed on her love of travel to her nieces whom she regularly took on vacation with her. She was a force to be reckoned with. Evelyn was the first person to support her family in all their endeavors, whether it be schooling, sporting events, fundraisers and anything in between. Her family meant everything to her. She looked forward to Sunday gatherings where she would cook, play games, and be surrounded by those who meant the most to her.
She is predeceased by her parents Alverie Tardif and Irene Lavoie. She is also predeceased by three brothers Russell, Joseph and Carlton and a sister Gloria.
She is survived by Louis (Marie) Tardif of Connecticut, Gerald “Joe” (Joyce) Tardif of Frenchville, Alvin (Debbie) Tardif of Frenchville, Mary Ann Tanguay of Fort Kent, Louise (Camille) Duval of Tennessee, Helene (Leonard) Robinson of Kentucky and Sandra (Rolland) Carrier of Frenchville. She is also survived by her nephews, James Tardif, Mike Tanguay, Russel Tardif, Jeff Theriault, Don Theriault, Shawn Robinson, and AJ Tardif and nieces April Difalco, Audra Cyr, Angela Rodriguez, Jessica Voisine, Gina Theriault and Casey Tardif and many great nephews and nieces, especially Brinley Voisine, whom she adored since the moment she was born. She is also survived by two special friends Louise Paradis and Valerie Voisine, together they made “The Three Amigos”
