Eva (Neufeld) Collins was born on June 29, 1945, near Wingard, SK. She was the second oldest of Abe and Ellie Neufeld's ten children. Because she was the oldest sister, she played a very special role in the lives of all of her siblings. Eva attended school at Horse Lake until she entered the workforce at a young age. Eventually she took a job in the meat department of Lawblaws in Saskatoon. This became her career until she retired in 2008. In her early 20s, Eva became friends with Donna (Jensen), and soon after married Donna's older brother, Ivan Collins, on January 18, 1969. Ivan and Eva raised their two daughters Gloria and Glenna on farm near Sonningdale, SK. The family attended the Sonningdale Pentecostal Church where Eva was an active Sunday School teacher and took part in various singing groups. For Eva, her family was second in her life only to her devotion to her Lord and Savior, Jesus, whom she served every day of her life. Summer camping at the lake was always a highlight. This was especially true once grandchildren arrived. Despite a very small camper stove top, most mornings, Eva made countless crepes for all who would show up for breakfast. Eva's door was always open to visitors. She was always willing to put on a pot of coffee. And coffee was always served with homemade pie, cinnamon buns, jamjams or other goodies, or peppernuts at Christmastime. Eva was diagnosed with cancer in 2009 and fought it for five years until her death on June 25, 2014. She will be always missed and forever remembered by her husband Ivan, daughters Gloria (Monte Allcock) and Glenna (David Ambros), and six grandchildren Ivana, James, and Gregory Allcock and Evangeline, Jacob, and Estella Ambros, along with many family and friends. Yet this we know: we will see her again! "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints" (Psalm 116:15). A private Memorial will be held for family members. Gifts and flowers are gratefully declined. Instead, those who choose may honour Eva by making a donation to her favourite Christian charity, "Bridges For Peace" (www.bridgesforpeace.com).
