Eva passed away peacefully after a brief battle with pancreatic Cancer.
She is remembered by her children: Randy (Sue), Kathie (Bruce) and Michael; her grandchildren: Bruce (Maureen), Giles (Robin), Aiden, Brendon (Nicole) and Breanne (Jeff); her great-grandchildren: Coco, Hazel, Elias and Olive. She was predeceased by her son Richard (Lynn).
Eva was born in Serny, Ukraine and at the age of 11 she lost her mother. She was raised by her loving grandmother who began to teach the then unwilling student, the art of pysanky and embroidery. She was a self-taught artist who was passionate about preserving the Ukrainian culture and nothing gave her more pleasure than a full class of eager students. She taught her children the importance of family, friends and faith. She made a house, a home and she always gave unconditional love to all those dear to her heart.
Special thanks to the staff at the University Hospital unit 5D3 who lovingly provided care to mom during her illness.
