Eve Phillips

November 28, 2019
Eve Phillips passed away surrounded by her family and dear friends on November 28, 2019. Born in England in 1934, Eve sailed half way round the world with her husband, Ted, and their youngest son, Chris, landing on Quadra Island in 1978. Their other children, Wendy and Nigel, soon followed. Ted died in 1987. After Ted’s death, she was supported in all her endeavours by her dear friend, Noel Lax, who became part of the family. Eve led an adventurous life, active in the peace movement and the environmental movement, and very involved with her church. She was a foster parent, quilter, and a gifted teacher who was still teaching in her tiny schoolhouse until a few days before she died. She was much loved by her large family, including seven grandchildren and ten great grandchildren, friends, students, and her community who will all miss her. In memory of Eve, donations to John Howard KidStart, a mentoring program for children, would be appreciated.
