87, Hebbville, died May 16, 2018 at Harbour View Haven in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia after a very brief battle with cancer. She was the beloved daughter of Laura Mae Baker and James William Baker, both of New Cumberland. She was predeceased in 1995 by her husband of 44 years, Douglas Francis, and sisters Florence, Shirley, Muriel and Ruth. Surviving are brother Lee and sisters Melissa and Mildred. Eva leaves behind a long legacy, including 10 children that she adored: Beverly Robar, Aubrey, David, Paul, Wendy, Carolyn, Leo, Grace, Brenda and Pearl Clothier, all of Lunenburg County. They gave her 20 grandchildren, who in turn gave her 25 great-grandchildren. Her first great-great grandchild was born last June. The service was performed on May 23 at R.A. Corkum Funeral Home in Wileville, officiated by Rev. Willis Ott. She was interred at Hebbville Cemetery, beside her husband, on what would have been their 67th wedding anniversary. Donations in her memory may be made to The Rose Fund (http://therosefund.ca/). Instead of mourning her loss, listen to Charley Pride and drink a bottle of Keith’s in her honour, remembering the absolute force of nature she was in life. She will be missed.
