Eusebia Maria GONCALVES

August 14, 1941 – February 7, 2012

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, wife, sister, grandmother and friend after a short battle with cancer.

Born in San Miguel, Azores, she travelled to Canada with her family and settled in Castlegar, BC, where she met and married her husband Carlos. Later they moved to Ladner, as Carlos had purchased a fishing boat and became a commercial fisherman. During her time in Ladner, she spent her time caring for her family, and others, working at Delta Hospital, from which she had retired.

Eusebia’s caring and compassionate nature and her love for all the wonderful, simple gifts of life and nature will be truly missed by all. We keep her love in our hearts so that we may be able to live our lives appreciating all the spectacular and wonderful gifts life has to offer.

Mass of Christian Burial to be held at Sacred Heart Church, 3900 Arthur Drive, Ladner, BC on Thursday, February 16, 2012 at 11:00 am, followed by interment at Boundary Bay Cemetery, in Twawwassen. A reception will follow at Coast Tsawwassen Inn, 1665 – 56 Street, Tsawwassen.

In lieu of flowers, we would ask that a donation be made in her memory to Delta Hospice Society at:

‘Those we love don’t go away. They walk beside

us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near. Still loved, still missed, and always dear’.
