She grew up in Deep Brook and later moved to Oshawa in 1955 with her husband, Colin. Eva then spent the next 36-years in Oshawa before returning to Nova Scotia upon her husband’s retirement.

Eva enjoyed gardening, playing cards, especially cribbage, crossword and jigsaw puzzles, driving her car, and people. She enjoyed travelling with her husband.
Many thanks to my nieces Heather and Dolores (my daughters I never had), who looked after me so well in the last years of my life.
