care facility after a prolonged

illness. She is predeceased by

her loving husband of 51 years

Donald Geoffrey Jorden and her brother Arne Henrikson. She is survived by her sons Michael and Geoffrey, their wives Susan and Nancy and her grandchildren Jane, Karl, Andrew and Catherine Rose as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Eva and her family lived in Nelson, B.C., in England during the war and for many years in North Vancouver. Upon retirement, Eva and Don moved to Salt Spring Island where they lived and enjoyed the support of the island community for many years. Eva was a resident of Greenwoods care facility for two years before being transferred to care in Mariposa Gardens in November, 2008. The family wishes to thank all the staff and administration at Mariposa Gardens for the care which our mother received in her final months, particularly Lesa, Rob, Erlina, Greg, Anne, Ingrid and Deanna for the sensitive, caring management of Eva in her final days. We are grateful that Dr. Tarr accepted Eva into his busy practice so that she could be with us this past year. An interment service will be held at St. Oswald’s church, Port Kells, B.C. at a date to be determined.

Condolences may be directed to the family by visiting

Arrangements entrusted to Nunes-Pottinger Funeral Service, Oliver, 250-498-0167.
