Obituary for Evangeline Alexina McNally

Mrs. McNally (nee Snowdon), Evangeline, Alexina

Born on December 22, 1919 in Altamont Manitoba, entered the presence of her Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ on Tuesday August 6, 2019, at 99 years of age.

Evangeline was predeceased by her husband William Holland McNally, her siblings Frances, Laurel, Jewell, Stuart, and Marion, and by her grandson Graedon McNally.

Eve was loved and will be missed by her children, daughters-in-law, son-in-law, grandchildren and their spouses, her great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and their families. She will also be missed by her sister Thelma Ruegg who resides in California. Eve is survived by her son Gregory (Wendy) McNally and their children Marcia, Andrea, and Linnea, by her daughter Elynn (Les) Moyer and their children Bethany and William, her son Grant (Wendy)McNally and their daughters Jordana, Reanne, and Kaelin. Eve is also survived by many nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, and by her 8 precious great grandchildren.

Evangeline (Eve) will be fondly remembered as the baby whisperer, she was gifted in caring for little ones, even babies were drawn to her sweet-natured spirit and calm manner. She and her dear friend Rose took care of the babies in the church nursery at Blue Mtn. Baptist for years. She was called Grandma Eve by many that were connected to her through the church. Eve was a talented individual, she could nurse houseplants back to good condition, she was a great baker as her cookies and cakes could be described as award winning quality. She was accomplished with handwork including knitting, crochet, needlework, and sewing. She was the seamstress that could make garment fitting adjustments as skilled as a professional tailor and sew clothing with the expertise of a creative costume designer. She will be remembered as a long-time member of the Edgewater Resort in Birch Bay Washington as she spent most of every summer there for 31 years. She traveled to Ontario, Florida, Hawaii, Oregon, California, cruised to Alaska, and she made many visits to Killarney Manitoba to visit family. She was dearly loved and will be remembered by her many friends at the Blue Mountain Ladies’ Group where she led a Bible Study until the age of 95.

A Memorial Service for The Celebration of Eve’s life will be held at Blue Mountain Church in Coquitlam on Saturday October 12, 2019 at 2:00 with a fellowship reception in the church following the service.

Special Thanks to the Blue Mountain Ladies’ Group who prayed for and sent words of encouragement to Eve.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the ministry work at Blue Mountain Baptist Church or Children’s Hospital (Vancouver).
