Eira Jessie Johns (Brown)

September 6, 1922 - October 23, 2015


Eira Johns     1922 – 2015

Eira passed peacefully on October 23 at Kootenay Lake Hospital. Born in Winnipeg, she remained ever

the Prairie girl and maintained that mountains just got in the way of the view. She lived in Winnipeg,

Wivenhoe (U/K), Montreal and Richmond before coming to Nelson. She was a feisty

lady who enjoyed life to the fullest and will be missed by all who had the privilege to know her.

Eira was predeceased by her husband Jack in 2004 and leaves her twin sister Jo (Charlie); her son David,

her daughter Lois (Dale), her grandchildren Morgan and Nils (Jesse) and her nieces and nephews.

The family wish to thank Dr. Bridger and the nursing staff on the third floor at Kootenay Lake Hospital

and Dr. Dixon-Warren and the team of the Stroke and Rehab Unit at the Trail Regional

Hospital for their kind and compassionate care of Eira.

Donations in Eira’s name to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Nelson SPCA would be appreciated.

No service by request. Cremation has taken place.
