COOK, Eva Blanche (nee Parr)
Of Nanaimo BC. (formerly of St. Catharines, Islington
and Etobicoke, Ontario)

Eva will be sorely missed by her husband of 64 years William (Bill) G. Cook and loving family, Dr. Bill (Wendy) Cook; Sharon (Jim) Horncastle; Paul (Debbie) Cook; and Dr. Timothy (Jamie) Cook. She was a proud and devoted Nana to Willy (Stephanie) and David Cook; Brian (Amanda) and Craig (Laura) Horncastle; Courtney and Kelly Cook; and Gillian, Ian and Matthew Cook. She was also a proud Great- Grandma to Molly, Alex, Ryan, Kate, Owen and Madison. She was a devoted 'Special Aunt' and loving Nana to Kathy Cook (Hamar Foster) and their children Cayce and Rachel; and to Sandra Webster-Cook and her son Benjamin. Also left to mourn her passing are her brother Rev. Dr. Jewitt Parr (Margaret), Jean Cook, Sharon Groom and many other relatives. Eva will be missed for her enthusiasm, love, humour, strength, caring and love of music. Eva dedicated her life to her family, friends, community and church. A private family 'Celebration of Eva's Life' will be held, with interment to follow later at the Paris Cemetery in Paris, Ontario. Memories and condolences may be sent to E.B. Cook.InMemory@gmail.com .
