Eva loved gardening and was well-known for her flower gardens. She volunteered at the MCC for many years and helped with quilting at the Olivet Church in Abbotsford. She had many hobbies; making greeting cards with dried flowers, drawing and painting, sewing doll clothes for the MCC to name just a few. Eva had been declining in health for the past few years. She was a resident in the Menno Home, Abbotsford since September 2011. The family would like to give a big and grateful thank-you to the staff at Menno Home and Dr. John Chan for the many years of caring for her.
