July 28, 1924 – April 6, 2015
Eveline Bouey, a feisty Irish woman with a quick wit and tremendous energy, passed away in Kelowna on April 6, 2015. Born in Belfast on July 28, 1924, Eve arrived in Canada as a young war bride. She travelled by train across the country and landed in Prince George where her high heels clattered down the wooden sidewalks. With husband, Stuart, Eve raised her family, worked, volunteered, sang opera aloud in the kitchen and made too many apple pandowdy to count. They retired to Penticton. A widowed Eve later moved to Summerland. Eve leaves behind 6 children, Alaine (Jack) McEachnie, Paul Bouey, Clare (Barry Yip) Bouey, Christopher (Judy) Bouey, Kate (Peter Roberts) Bouey and Stephen (Sung Ha Shin) Bouey, as well as 11 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. At Eve’s request, there will be no service.
