It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Eva on July 5, 2014 at Shuswap Lake General Hospital with loved ones by her side.
Eva was predeceased by her husband, Joe, of 45 years.
She was born in Germany on March 10, 1935 and spent her childhood there. Her early adult years were spent in Germany & Sweden before immigrating to Canada which quickly became her new home. Over the years she moved from East to West with her family, spending time first in Quebec, then to Alberta & the past 23 years in the neighborhood of Sunnybrae, Tappen, BC where she & her husband built their retirement home together.
After Joe’s passing in late 2008, Eva continued living in the home they built together. With enthusiasm, she pursued her passion for gardening, going on her daily walks with her side-kick, Pepper, and spending time in Calgary with her daughter Tess and son-in-law, Jason.
Left to cherish her memory is her daughter Tess (Jason) Vostner-Bell of Calgary, her brother Kurt (Heidi) Kasdorf of Wisconsin, close family friends Trish & Al Probyn as well as family and friends both near and far.
The family would like to extend their sincere gratitude to Dr. Erasmus Bonthuys for his compassion & kindness over the years, as well as the ICU nurses at Shuswap Lake General Hospital for all the love and care shown towards Eva and her loved ones.
Respecting Eva’s wishes, there will be no formal service. A donation in memory of Eva may be sent to your local SPCA or animal shelter (a cause dear to her).
