Evelyn B. McGregor, 99, died peacefully on Monday, Nov. 3, 2008, at the Olivia White Hospice Home in Flagstaff.

Mrs. McGregor's journey began Dec. 29, 1908, in Middletown, N.Y. The youngest of four, she was born to Antonio and Serefina Curti Blasioli. After graduating high school, she pursued a career in nursing and received her registered nurse certification in 1932. She began her career at St. Luke's Children's Hospital in Philadelphia, where she worked until 1936. She then moved out west to work in the Public Health Hospital in Fort Defiance. She dedicated her life to caring for others and remained a nurse at heart until her death.

She was married to Samuel P. McGregor in 1938, at St. Michaels Catholic Church, in St. Michaels. Together they welcomed three children. They moved to Prescott in 1973, where they spent the next 34 years. She moved to Flagstaff in 2007 to enjoy more time with her family. She spent her remaining year and a half enjoying her great-grandchildren and her new found friends at The Peaks.

She is survived by children Anthony McGregor (Mildred), Louise McGregor and Edith Lorton (Ken); six grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, Samuel P. McGregor.

A memorial service in honor of her life will be Friday at 1 p.m. at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church, in Prescott.

The family would like to offer special thanks to the staff at the Olivia White Hospice Home, the residents, caregivers and staff at The Peaks, close friends and the Catholic community.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial donations be made to Northland Hospice, P.O. Box 997, Flagstaff, AZ 86002, or www.northland
