Eva Eve Thiessen

February 2, 1931 - March 28, 2013

Tribute

After a courageous struggle with cancer, Eve passed away peacefully on March 28, 2013.  She was predeceased by her parents Margaret and Frank Thiessen, adopted parents Agatha and Jacob Reimer, brothers Peter Thiessen, Jake Reimer, Died Reimer and her lifelong friend and companion Eileen de la Ronde.  Eve is survived by her sisters, Anne Funk, Nettie Keisman and Barbara Pratt (Alex), brothers John Reimer (Helen), Harry Thiessen (Doreen), John Thiessen (Martha) and numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

 

Born in Rhineland Municipality in southern Manitoba, Eve completed high school in Altona and nurses training in Brandon.  Eve was employed at the Brandon Mental Health Centre where she met fellow nurse Eileen who became her close friend and companion and was ‘adopted’ by the entire Reimer family.  In the mid 1960’s Eve and Eileen moved to British Columbia.  After a brief time in the Okanagan, and then New Westminster they settled in Port Coquitlam.  Eve worked at the Essondale Psychiatric Hospital until her retirement in 1985.  In 1993 Eve relocated to Abbotsford where she spent her remaining years.  Fond of entertaining at E&E’s B&B, traveling, gardening, hobbies such as sewing, knitting and crafts, Eve will be lovingly remembered by all who knew her.

 

Special thanks to the staff of Cheam 2 at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital who provided exceptional care during her final days.

 

A celebration of Eve’s life will be held on Saturday, May 4, 2013 at 2:00 pm at the ABC Country Restaurant, 32080 Marshall Road in Abbotsford with refreshments to follow.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Abbotsford Regional Hospital Cancer Centre or to the FVHC Foundation in support of the Tertiary Palliative Care Unit at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital.
