Eva Annie Yardley BRUHN


Eva Annie Yardley Bruhn of Rimbey, Alberta passed away peacefully at the Rimbey Hospital and Care Centre, Long Term Care on Sunday, March 13, 2016 at the age of 93 years.

Eva was born in Copenhagen, Denmark and was the last survivor of nine siblings. She met Rydich at an Agricultural College in Denmark, and they were married in 1944. In 1949, they immigrated to Canada with their daughter, Ulla. They arrived in Southern Alberta and worked on a grain farm where their son, Chris was born. In 1965, the family moved to a mixed farm near Rimbey. Together they farmed until 1987 when they retired to the Summer Village of Parkland Beach. Eva enjoyed her years of farm life. Her gardens were large and plentiful. She was admired by family and friends as a fabulous cook, her baking and decorated cakes always scrumptious. She had a great love for Rottweiler’s, and could be seen walking the dogs in the Parkland Beach area. Eva was a compassionate person, always concerned about the welfare of others. After Rydich’s death she moved to Rimbey where she began her volunteer work at the Rimbey Long Term Care Centre for six years.

Eva will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her daughter, Ulla; and son, Chris (Sandy) of Rimbey; and her grandchildren, Janean and Michael; as well as several nieces and nephews in Canada and Denmark. Eva was predeceased by her husband, Rydich in 2007; and her son-in-law, Bob Crouch in 2015.

With respect for Eva’s wishes, no formal Funeral Service will be held. Cremation took place in Red Deer, Alberta. A Family Celebration of Life and Graveside Service will take place at a later date in the West Haven Cemetery, Rimbey. If friends desire, memorial tributes in Eva’s Memory may be made directly to the Rimbey Hospital and Care Centre ~ Administration, Box 440, Rimbey, Alberta T0C 2J0.
