Eva Russel passed away on May 27, 2014 in her 90th year while in the loving care of Beaconsfield Manor. She will be missed and remembered by her family and many friends in Canada, America and in the Czech Republic. Eva left her Czechoslovak homeland in the late 1940s to settle initially in Ottawa, where she pursued careers in consular services, then acting. After completing further studies, she taught Drama and Theatre at McGill University in Montreal. Eva met and married Robert Russel of the National Film Board in 1957 and enjoyed a 27 year partnership. Eva retired from McGill University in 1996 and subsequently spent many active and happy years, travelling, entertaining, tending her garden, cycling and cross-country skiing. A private Memorial Service will be held in June at the Kane & Fetterly Funeral Home, 5301 Decarie Blvd. (corner Isabella). In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory to the McGill Center for Studies in Aging, Development Office, 6825 LaSalle Blvd., Verdun, QC H4H 1R3 or to Beaconsfield Manor, 34 Woodland Avenue, Beaconsfield, QC H9W 4V9 would be most welcome.
