Eva Di Pasquale of Trail passed away peacefully August 18, 2014 at Poplar Ridge.
Eva was born in Trail on February 1, 1918. She graduated as a Registered Nurse from St Joseph’s Hospital in Victoria, BC and continued nursing for several years in Victoria and across Canada, until returning to Trail in the 1940’s. She grew up in a large, extended Italian family where there was always room for one more at the table. Eva maintained that love of hospitality throughout her life, along with her love of music and the joy she felt with children. She spent her years from 1946 until 1991 managing Sandy’s Music and Record store — helping many young musicians become talented artists.
She is survived by her brother Sandy and sister Mary (Bill Ferguson). She was predeceased by her parents Raffaele and Marianna Di Pasquale, sisters Evelyn Deering and Belgina Cusella. She is lovingly remembered as “Auntie Eva” by numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews and family friends. All of us will miss her greatly, but she will always be in our hearts and memories.
Sincere thanks to Ellen Johnson, Cindy Hill and to all the staff at Poplar Ridge for their care of our dear Eva.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Holy Trinity Catholic Parish on Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at 10:30 am with Father Bart van Roijen, Celebrant. Al Grywacheski of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with arrangements.
