Eveline was a very quiet, loving and caring woman who always had a positive attitude towards life.

Eveline was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother and will be deeply missed by her family. She loved reading and could be found relaxing, enjoying a favorite book. She always enjoyed watching hockey games and was a loyal fan of the Vernon Vipers.
