It is with profound sadness that the family of Eva Marie Evans announces her passing on May 20 2018 at the age of 82. Eva is predeceased in 2014 by her husband of 57 years, Lyle. She will be lovingly remembered by her daughters Donna (Tony) and Denise (Glen), grandchildren Breanne and Mitchell (Tayler) great grandson Thomas, sister Marian and many nieces, nephews and friends. Born in Kelowna, Eva met Lyle after moving to Abbotsford. Surrey was their home for more than 50 years. Eva was blessed with a beautiful soul and her unwavering love, patience and kindness bound her family together. She took great pride in her home, her garden and enjoyed sewing, knitting and crocheting. She spent many years as an active member of the PTA and was a regular volunteer at the girls school. She never missed a baseball game when her girls were playing and had it not been for Eva, there may have not been anyone to keep score. A celebration of Eva’s beautiful life will be held on Sunday June 24 2018 at 11:00am at Oliveira Funeral Home located at 2657 Shaughnessy Street in Port Coquitlam. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to The Terry Fox Foundation or the Alzheimer Society of BC, in Eva’s name. She will be forever loved.
