In Loving Memory of Eva Buck (nee Capostinsky): March 9, 1931 – Dec. 26, 2019

Our Mother, Grandma and Great Grandma, Eva (88 years) passed away peacefully on Dec. 26, 2019 at Dr Helmcken Memorial Hospital in Clearwater.

Her caring heart and compassionate way of “putting others first” remain a legacy to those of us who were privileged to know and love her. 

Eva was born in Granada, Alta. on March 9, 1931, the 16th child of Mary (nee Trihub) and Abraham Capostinsky. She had nine brothers and six sisters. In the early 1950s, she met and married Dad, Ed Buck, her best friend, co-worker, husband of 58 years and father to their five children: Barry, Bev, Brent, Lyle and Carolyn. 

Thanks to Mom, our family home was always filled with wonderful smells of food, the sound of laughter and storytelling and photos posted on every available surface! She demonstrated her love practically through nurturing, teaching and generous giving. Known for her roasters filled with cabbage rolls, perogies, delicious soups, turkey dinners and fresh bread and buns – visitors, whether family or friends, never left hungry or empty-handed. We will cherish the memories of her ability to make people laugh through her colourful sense of humour!

Eva is survived by her children, grand and great grandchildren: Barry (Hettie) Buck, Joshua (Krista) and children Ava, Adrian, Ashton, Ryder and Hunter Buck, Justice (Tammy) and children True, Sienna and Tristan Buck, Jeremy (Rossana), Jadessa (Gary) and Vivienne Olson; Bev, Kyler (Sylvia) and daughters Sarah, Laura, Christina, Rebekah and Hannah Miller, Derek (Chelsea) Miller; Brent (Tracy) Buck, Wynter (Chris) and Storm and Symphony Oakes; Lyle, Gregory (Gabrielle) and Mateo Buck, Kerry (Jon) Lefebvre; Carolyn (Dario) and Angelo, Giordano and Talia Corlazzoli; and numerous nieces, nephews and extended relatives.

Eva is predeceased by parents Abraham and Mary Capostinsky; brothers Frank, John, Paul, Sam, Andrew, Phillip, Stephen, Harry and James; sisters Mary, Lydia, Lena, Anna, Sadie and Phyllis; loving husband Ed (2010); grandson and wife and great-grandson Skye, Courtney and Baby Boy Buck (2012); and some nieces, nephews and extended family members.

Immediate family will hold a graveside service at a future date. Memorial donations in Eva’s name may be made with thanks to Royal Inland Hospital or Dr Helmcken Memorial Hospital Auxiliary.
