Eva Gulliford 1927 — 2018

Eva Gulliford

October 22, 1927-November 14, 2018

 Eva Gulliford, 91, passed away peacefully in her sleep the afternoon of Wednesday, November 14th, 2018 at Kamloops Senior Village. She was born October 22, 1927 in Virovitica, Yugoslavia and immigrated to Canada at 9 months of age with her parents, Adam and Karolina Schimpf on the Empress of Australia in July, 1928.  She grew up on the family farm in Brocklehurst and met her husband, Bill, working at the Whiteway Laundry. They married in June 1948 and built a life together until his death in 2012.

Eva is survived by her brother Tony (Kay); two daughters Carol (Ken) and Jackie; grand-daughters Erin, Leah (Dallas), Nicole, and Shannon (Andre); great grand-children Leslee, Henry, and Dominick; and many nieces and nephews, family friends and neighbors. She is predeceased by her sisters Annie, Elsie, Louise and son-in-law, Chris (Jackie).

Eva was a stay-at-home mother and homemaker. She liked to cook, bake, sew, embroider, knit, and garden. She enjoyed square dancing, playing cards and bowling and enjoyed travelling with her husband to Australia, Cape Breton, Grand Caymans, Hawaii and Mexico.

It is with much sadness that we say good-bye to a wonderful mother, sister, grandma, great grandma, aunt, and friend.

At her request, a public service will not be held.

    Dear Carol and Jackie,

    It’s with sadness that I see that my “Auntie Eva” has passed. As I think of her now I remember that big smile and laugh and it brings a smile to my face.

    Thinking of you both…Reggie
