Eva-Marie (Wiehler) Daniel went to her forever home on Sunday Jan. 8, 2023. Later that afternoon, her home was filled with friends and family for 3:00 coffee time. This was always her favourite part of the day, especially when someone came to visit. Eva was born Mar. 4, 1926, in West Prussia. She was the fifth child in a family of 13 kids. After WWII, Eva was sponsored by Mennonite Central Committee to work at a hospital in Pennsylvania for one year. This prepared her for Herbert’s proposal in 1956: “Will you marry me? I’m immigrating to Canada.” She said “Yes!” Canada was full of adventure: getting married within one week of arriving, working at Vancouver General Hospital, moving to North Delta, B.C., building a house, and making a home for her husband and 3 children. Eva was active at Kennedy Heights Church, helping at Pioneer Clubs and always practising hospitality. After the children grew up, she worked at the Fairweather clothing store, learned hairdressing, and then took a long-term care course and worked a few years in a senior care facility. Later she volunteered many years at the MCC Thrift Shop. After her husband’s death in 2012, Eva invited a group of widows from Central Heights Church to her home for coffee every Sunday at 3:00. This tradition continued right until Dec. 18. She lived a long and full life surrounded by people who loved her.
