Passed suddenly in her beloved Muskoka home on Saturday October 3, 2020. Eva was the proud mother of Jennifer Fleming (Michael) and Emily Cockburn (Brian). The loving Nana of Grace, Paige and Skye. Married 51 years to Brian, they traveled the world together. The last four years were a challenge for Eva, with the onset of Alzheimer's, but she never complained, never lost her good nature, and never gave up.
A private service will be held with internment at Torrance Cemetery.
Any donations in her memory can be made to the Alzheimer's Society of Toronto.
She Is Gone
You can shed tears that she is gone Or you can smile because she has lived
You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her Or you can be full of the love that you shared
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday
You can remember her and only that she is gone Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
