Eva Dart

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother Eva Dart (nee Leslie) on August 6th, 2016 in Poplar Ridge. Eva was born in Saltcoats, Saskatchewan, a farmer’s daughter to Jean and Theordore Leslie and lived most of her life in Trail, BC where she raised her children. Eva was predeceased by her husband Ray, Brothers; Ted (Jock), Jim, George, Bill, Melvin and sister Nan. She is survived by her children; Lillian, Margaret, Susan, John, Lesly and Linda as well as her grandchildren Wayne, Shayne, Chris, Lisa, Jodi, Rachel, Jesse and Shawn and ten great grandchildren. Eva was a member of the Legion Ladies Auxiliary for over 33 years. She was a hard worker and loved her positions throughout the years with the Legion. She especially loved the Bake Sales and baking her great pies. She loved Country Music and being with her family. Nearly eleven years ago, Eva survived a car accident that changed her life. These past years were spent living with the effects of that accident along with dementia and more recently; Colon Cancer. Eva was an incredibly strong person and will be truly missed. We would like to thank the Nursing Staff of Poplar Ridge for all their special care. Cremation has taken place, Alexandra Butts of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with arrangements.
