One thought on “EVA MABEL HAIST”
I was so saddened to hear about Eva’s passing. She was a wonderful lady and a true role model for those of us who worked with her in the Niagara Presbyterial United Church Women. She set a high standard for working within the UCW.
I am sure she has been welcomed with open arms by Our Father in Heaven
and had a place of honour when she arrived. Eva always had a gentle smile and welcoming demeanour for anyone who encountered her and I have many fond memories of her impacting the work of our Lord in the Niagara Presbyterial UCW.
May your memories of the beautiful woman she was and of her all encompassing love for those around her and her love for her Saviour console you during these grievous times.
