March 13, 1930 – October 28, 2014
at the age of 84 years
A memorial for Eva will be held on Saturday, November 8th at 1 PM in the Bible Church in Sicamous.
Wonderful mother… devoted to the Lord Eva Maria Nieminen, 84 passed away peacefully on October 28th to be with the Lord she loved. Born in Finland on March 13th, 1930, she emigrated to Canada after the war, met her future husband Eero and settled in Sicamous in the late 1950s.
Eva is survived by her sons, Robert, John, Bruce and Bernie as well as her grandchildren Jessica, Sarah Rose and Christopher. Loving, generous, hardworking and always enthusiastic toward the majesty and the awe of the Lord and helping others; Eva was a person of high ethics, amazing production, and her life was the embodiment of true grit and strength of spirit.
Eva loved her family and friends immensely and we were blessed to have a super mom! The truth is that we miss you more than we know… Love you forever mom!
We also thank Hillside Village for their fine care of Eva as well as the wonderful people that helped her cope with her condition in the last years of her life.
In lieu of flowers, a donation to The Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation (www.alzinfo.org) is suggested…
Eva was a great lady and her history with my mom and dad was fantastic. I know that my mom – Maureen – is grieving already as are we all. You’ll be missed Eva.
