On Saturday, October 19, 2019, at the age of 83, Eva Jean passed away peacefully, with her family by her side.
Eva was born to Margaret and John Letkeman and was one of nine siblings. Eva was predeceased by her husband Ernie, both her parents, siblings, Esther, Alice, Johnny and Ronnie, and her great-grandson Callum.
Eva was a devoted wife to her husband Ernie, and they shared four beautiful children, Ted, Brenda (Cully), Darryl (Hollie) and Pamela; who blessed them with 11 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-granddaughter. Eva’s family was her pride and joy and the love for them was always evident; in fact she spent most of her years at home raising her family and caring for her children and grandchildren.
She loved to tell jokes, spoke her mind, and had a whit like nobody else. Over the years and into her retirement, Eva enjoyed knitting, baking, playing bingo, and spending time with family and friends, and although these things all brought her joy, not a day went by when she didn’t share how much she loved and missed her husband Ernie.
Eva was the glue that held her family together, and she will be missed dearly.
The family would like to thank the staff at the Deer Lodge Centre for their special care over the past two years.
A memorial service will be held Monday, October 28, Thomson Funeral Home, 669 Broadway Ave., Winnipeg. Viewing at 1:30 p.m., memorial service at 2:00 p.m., light lunch to follow.
