March 10, 1926 – January 22, 2020
at the age of 93 years
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Eva Emily Wrigley on Jan. 22, 2020. Mom was born on Mar. 10, 1926 in Normandy, England to Alfred and Adelaide Wellington. She had one sibling Betty. At the age of 16 she married Ted Wrigley a Canadian soldier and at 18 had her 1st of 6 children. That same year they all came to Canada, settling in Vancouver, B.C. She also lived in the Caribou (east of the 70 Mile House), Green Lake, Chase, Kamloops, Enderby and Salmon Arm. Mom was a very talented lady she painted, drew, wrote poems, taught herself to play the piano, sewed, and loved gardening, singing and travelling. In her 70’s she wrote 2 books and had them published. Mom met everything in her life head on, but always with a sense of humor.
Mom is predeceased by her husband Ted, sister Betty and 2 sons Bill and Jim.
She is survived by her children Elaine (Dallas) Dobbyn, Lynne (Dennis) Quinn, John (Sharon) Wrigley, and Liz (Fritz) Ziercke and her daughter-in-laws Donna (Bill) Wrigley and Lyndy (Jim) Wrigley.
13 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren. As well as relatives in England.
Mom was a devoted servant of our creator Jehovah, she has the wonderful hope of living in a future paradise on earth a fulfillment of Rev. 21:3,4.
The family would like thank Dr. C. Weicker and the staff at Bastion Place for their care, compassion and kindness.
A family service will be held at a later date.
