Mom was born in Selkirk on June 25, 1939, and grew up on the farm in Walkleyburg. She married Dad on October 8, 1955, and settled in Tyndall, where they built their one and only home. She worked as a bookkeeper and parts runner in their trucking business, and raised their seven children. She drove a school bus for Agassiz School Division, and became "Mom" to many more kids, particularly the group from Lac du Bonnet who she bussed from Beausejour to Selkirk Comprehensive. She also worked for Ludwick's Catering for many years.
Mom spent her spare time gardening, berry picking, canning, sewing, knitting, and crafting. She enjoyed making perogies, meatballs and cabbage rolls for the holidays, and looked forward to the house overflowing with her children and grandchildren.
We grew up watching Mom handle every obstacle life put in her way with strength and courage. She was the most selfless person, who would do anything for anyone, it didn't matter who. Everyone was a part of her family, and she'd welcome anyone into her home. It didn't matter what time of day or night you stopped by or came home, Mom would always ask if you wanted something to eat.
Mom somehow had an uncanny sense to know when one of us kids was up to something we shouldn't have been. She often busted us when we thought we were in the clear. She had a great sense of humour, and we shared so many laughs in later years when we'd reminisce about those times.
She did a great job raising us, and we learned from the best. Her kind heart and compassion will always be remembered by us, as well as her many friends. She will be forever in our hearts, and be greatly missed by all who knew her.
We would like to thank the staff of East-Gate Lodge for the care and compassion they showed towards Mom. For that, we will always be grateful.
Cremation has taken place. A private family memorial will be held at a future time.
In lieu of flowers, if family and friends so desire, donations may be made to Diabetes Canada, East Gate Lodge, Beausejour, MB, or a charity of your choice.

My Thoughts and Prayers go out to the Greschuk family. Eva was a kind and giving person. May you take comfort in all of your joyous memories of her. When we used to meet she always brought a smile to my face like a ray of sunshine. Kevin Dawson - Posted by: Kevin C. Dawson (Friend) on: Apr 25, 2020
