Evertje Eva Hillegonda Cox (Braam)

November 12, 1951 - September 4, 2015


It is with deep sadness that we announce that Eva Cox, born Evertje Hillegonda Braam, passed away peacefully on September 4th, 2015. She immigrated from Amsterdam to Vancouver in 1972, relocated to the Slocan Valley in 1974, and lived in Nelson since 1986. Happily married for 41 years, Eva was a devoted wife, mother, and Oma. She spent much of her spare time active in the outdoors, either hiking up Pulpit Rock or biking with her husband Ed and dog Sheba. She was loved for her kind and open nature, positive attitude, and commitment to her family. Eva will be missed dearly by her husband Ed, children Jason and Jennifer, grandchildren Elyse, Wesley, and Lauren, and siblings Heidi, Jaap, Gerrit, and Dick, as well as extended family and many friends in BC and Holland. A tribute service for family, friends, and colleagues will be held at Taghum Community Hall (5915 Taghum Hall Road) on Sunday, September 20th at 2:00 pm. Memorial donations may be made to the BC Cancer Agency.

So sorry to read this. Eva was always an inspiration to me -her outgoing energy, her love of the outdoors and of the dogs, her unflagging positive energy were a model of living well. I shall always remember her skiing without poles when her shoulders hurt.
