It is with profound sadness that we, the family of Eva Johanna Pembroke, share the news of her passing on Monday February 13, 2023 at the age of 81. Born in New Waterford, Eva was the daughter of Christina Currie and Danneil Morrison. Eva was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend.
She and her husband, Ronnie, operated Pembroke’s Irving in Scotchtown, where for many years they worked side by side, they built a successful business and were well respected in the community.
Eva is survived by her husband of 61 years, Ronnie Pembroke; daughter Cathy (Harold) MacPherson; granddaughter Ashley (Chris); great grandson James. She is also survived by her brother-in-law Adrian (Patsy); sisters-in-law Dolly, Lorraine (Vince), Joan, Patsy, and many nieces, nephews, and lifetime friends.
We would like to thank the staff of 3B and Palliative Care, as well as Dr George Burns, for their care and compassion during her illness. Thank you to her family physician, Dr Worth, who has been very attentive to her medical needs for many years.
Funeral arrangements are under the care and direction of McLellan Funeral Home, 3183 Plummer Ave, New Waterford. As per Eva's wishes a Funeral Mass will take place on Saturday February 18th at 10 a.m. in the Parish Church of St. Leonard, Mount Carmel Avenue, with Fr. Jim Oliver officiating. Interment will be held at a later date. You may express words of comfort and condolence directly to Eva's Family by visiting her Tribute Wall at the top of this page.
…..Your mother is always with you. She’s the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street. She’s the smell of certain foods you remember, flowers you pick, the fragrance of life itself. She’s the cool hand on your brow when you’re not feeling well. She’s your breath in the air on a cold winter’s day. She is the sound of the rain that lulls you to sleep, the colors of the rainbow; she is Christmas morning. Your mother lives inside your laughter. She’s the place you came from, your first home, and she’s the map you follow with every step you take. She’s your first love, your first friend, even your first enemy, but nothing on earth can separate you — not time, not space….not even death.
