August 26, 1929 – November 15, 2020

It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our dear sister, Eva, with her family by her side, on November 15, 2020, wife of the late Howard Liddicoat.
Left to cherish her memory are sisters Thérèse Carpenter-Hunter and Marguerite-Rose Risbey (Arnold), numerous nephews, nieces and cousins and brother-in-law Fernand Tremblay. Eva was predeceased by her parents, Alexandre and Denise St. Germain; her four sisters and their spouses, Rita Smith (Walter), Josephine Larkin (Paul), Juliette Beaudin (Earl Humphries), Alice Tremblay, and one brother Marcel St. Germain (Rose); brothers-in-law Leo Carpenter, Bill Hunter, George, Wesley, Clifford, Ivan and Clarence Liddicoat and sister-in-law Sophie McCabe.
Eva was born in Baie St. Paul E., on August 26, 1929. Eva had a happy childhood at home with her loving family, working in the family store, going to country dances at the Avenue Hall, the Haven, Meadows and Meadow Lee where she loved to dance. She went to St. Francois-Xavier high school and met many friends. When she was 17, she met the love of her life, Howard, and they were married in St. Eustache R.C. Church and moved to Thunder Bay in 1947. Eva and Howard worked in the bush camps for Abitibi Co. and Great Lakes Paper for many years, where she prepared meals for the workers. Eva and Howard loved getting dressed up and going dancing. She took pride in her appearance and always made sure she had on lipstick and her hair styled at the salon. In their retirement years, they moved to Kelowna, BC in 1988. Eva was a very neat and exceptional homemaker and baker. Her pies were her specialty along with crocheting doilies and knitting slippers, to name a few. She took great pride in her doilies and slippers and loved giving them to family and friends. Eva was a devout Catholic and a long-time member of the Catholic Women's League. Eva and Howard were blessed to enjoy 63 years of marriage. After Howard passed away in 2010, Eva moved back to Winnipeg to be with her sisters and their families. Due to ill health, Eva spent her final days at Golden West Centennial Lodge. The family would like to thank the caring staff, with special thanks to Wendy and the third floor staff who kept Eva safe through the COVID-19 crisis.
The family would like to express sincere gratitude to Arnold Risbey (Arnie), for his time and compassion shown to Eva, for running her errands and for visiting her every day until COVID-19 restrictions reduced visitation. Eva always commented how grateful she was to have Arnie helping her and she didn't know what she would have done without him after Howard passed.
Due to the pandemic, a private family service will be held.
In lieu of flowers, a memorial donation may be made to the Heart and Stroke foundation:
