Eva Williams
January 24, 1934 - March 7, 2023

Peacefully and with grace in her 89th year, Eva Hazel Williams (nee Beaver) began her spiritual journey.
She will be reunited with her late husband Robert (Bob) Ellis Williams, her late parents Howard Beaver and Stella Beaver (nee Schuler). 
Mother of Wanda Green (Rusty), Kathy Francis (Rick) and Howard Williams (Charlene).  Sister to the late Grace Patterson (Manny), Violet House, Peter Beaver (Marguerite), David “Bud” Beaver (Thelma), Ruth Mt Pleasant (Frank), Ross Beaver (Betty), Ron Beaver Sr. (Carol) and survived by brother Ollie Beaver. She will be lovingly remembered by many nieces and nephews.
Eva was a skilled seamstress and an accomplished leather worker, making countless pairs of moosehide moccasins, buckskin dresses and jackets.
Eva was a loving grandmother who always had Indian cookies and hot tea at the ready for her family.  Often enjoyed by grandchildren; Lea Williams (Mike), Richard Francis, Jessica Robertson (Cory), Ryan Francis (Friede), Jonathan Francis (Chantelle), Warren Green (Magda) and Amanda Green (Jay).  The year was often spent preparing handmade gifts which were Christmas and birthday favourites among her treasured grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. 
Thank you to Dr. Trevor, Dr. East and the staff at Iroquois Lodge for the care provided to Eva throughout her stay.  All the visits, fabric deliveries and daily chats were much appreciated.
Visitation will be held at Styres Funeral Chapel, 1798 4th Line, Ohsweken on Thursday, March 9th from 6:00pm – 8:00pm.  Funeral also to be held at Styres Funeral Chapel Friday, March 10th at 2:30pm.  Interment to follow at Medina Baptist Church, Ohsweken.  www.rhbanderson.com

On behalf of the Monture family, I am sending deepest condolences on the passing of your Mom, Eva. She was a great neighbour to my Mom. Will always remember , as soon as your Mom heard of my Mom’s passing, she was right across the yard with her great Indian cookies. Always had a wave and a smile whenever I saw her.

Dear Kathy and family, my sincere condolences for the loss of your mother and grandmother. There are no words to assuage your grief. People will say she lived a good long life and while that’s true, it doesn’t lessen the loss.

Williams Family,
We’d like to give our deepest condolences to you all in this time of loss of your Mom, Gram, Auntie & friend to all! she was truly an amazing lady, with a huge heart Full of empathy,caring and love for all. She was so sweet and kind, with an infectious smile. We had the pleasure of having Eva & family make many buck skin outfits and moccasins for our family and her work was world class :) she was so generous and genuine when she’d ask “How are you doing??” Or to hear her say “we’ll see what we can do” when she’d be faced with a unthinkable amount of work for yet another leather order..not only would she prevail, but she’d do it with CLASS! With her amazing attention to detail and insistence for perfection & satisfaction, she’d make sure she even made a little extra like arm & headbands to match..wow what are artist. She will be missed by everyone who had the pleasure of know her. She spoke very highly and so proudly of all of her family,
Thank you for sharing her with us all.

Nya:węh & travel well Eva, thank you for your kindness and caring.

We extend our deepest condolences to Wanda, Howard and Kathy and their families. It was a pleasure to have known Eva. What a lovely and gracious Christian woman. We attended Springvale BIC church with her for many years. She had the most beautiful smile and was so soft spoken but when she spoke she had something significant to say to you. Well done thou good and faithful servant... enter into the joy of the Lord.
