The sad news has come from the USA that Evelyn Alexander (née Evelina Forte) passed away yesterday in San Francisco. Evelina was the daughter of the late Massimino Forte and Pacetta Forte, and younger sister to the late Air Gunner Sgt. Rodolfo Forte, who was killed in action during World War II.
Massimino and Pacetta were originally from Mortale, but moved to the Galashiels and Kelso area in the 1920s.
Our condolences go to Evelina’s husband, Patrick Alexander, her daughter Simone and grandchildren in California, where Evelina had lived for many years.
