Eva was born in Alida, Sask. in 1913, to parents Celina and Eli Wilcott. In 1934 she married Donald Brown, and together they farmed in the Parkview District for many years. Eva was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and friend, who will always be remembered for her laughter. Her happiest moments were tapping her toe to a lively fiddle tune, gardening and knitting and spending time with her children and grandchildren. She was a wonderful cook and made the best doughnuts and soup (which will always be remembered by Ron) and gravy (which will always be remembered by Keith). Other peoples happiness always came first. She took each day as it came, always with a smile, and she never complained. She is survived by and will be dearly missed by her loving husband Donald; sons, Raymond (Lucianne), Art (Brenda) daughters, Rose (Phil) Leitold, Jean (Ron) Heroux; grandchildren, Keith (Theresa), Kevin (Dawn), Michelle (Ryan), Pam, Eleanor, Richard, Floyd, Chad, Michael, Rachelle (Jody) and Nicole (Jeff) also six great-grandchildren; a brother Victor of Pine Falls; two sisters, Edna and Emma and sister-in-law Christine.
