Eva Jorden

May 13, 1921 - October 14, 2009



Born in Goteborg, Sweden on May 13, 1921, Eva passed away October 14, 2009 at Mariposa Gardens care facility after a prolonged illness. She is predeceased by her loving husband of 51 years Donald Geoffrey Jorden and her brother Arne Henrikson. She is survived by her sons Michael and Geoffrey, their wives Susan and Nancy and her grandchildren Jane, Karl, Andrew and Catherine Rose as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Eva and her family lived in Nelson, B.C., England during the war and for many years in North Vancouver. Upon retirement, Eva and Don moved to Salt Spring Island where they lived and enjoyed the support of the island community for many years. Eva was a resident of Greenwoods care facility for two years before being transferred to care in Mariposa Gardens in November, 2008. The family wishes to thank all the staff and administration at Mariposa Gardens for the care which our mother received in her final months, particularly Lesa, Rob, Erlina, Greg, Anne, Ingrid and Deanna for the sensitive, caring management of Eva in her final days. We are grateful that Dr. Tarr accepted Eva into his busy practice so that she could be with us this past year. An interment service will be held at St. Oswald’s church, Port Kells, B.C. at a date to be determined.

Relation: Friend for many years

My husband Ken and I met Eva and her husband Don in Egypt many years’ ago.

Since then, we visited them many times on Saltspring Island and they visited us here in the UK, as well as spending two holidays with us: on the Algarve in Portugal;and on the Greek Island of Poros.

We were very sad when Don died and now Eva; it’s the end of an era !

Our love and God Bless to all the family,

Mary and Ken Higgins
