Evangeline "Eva" Graf Obituary


   It is with immense sadness that we announce the passing of Evangeline “Eva” Graf on March 28, 2024 at the Crowsnest Pass Continuing Care Centre, Blairmore, AB.  She was 82 years of age.

  Eva was born in Pincher Creek, AB on December 11, 1941 to proud parents, Earl and Lucy Bohmer.  Growing up with fourteen siblings, she learned to cherish family and to always lend a hand to those around you from a very early age.  Eva never forgot those lessons, and she passed them down to her own children when she and her beloved husband, Kenny were blessed with a family of their own.

  Not only did Eva work hard as a wife and mother, but she also ran the Hillcrest Post Office and had a twenty-nine-year career at Kentucky Fried Chicken in Pincher Creek, AB.  Many people would only order if they knew she was working.

  When Eva wasn’t busy taking care of her family, and into retirement, she enjoyed doing puzzles, creating pottery, playing cards, gardening - even though the deer ate most of it, and reading Harlequin Romance novels.  She also spent many hours creating crochet projects that many family and friends still have today.  Eva was well-known for her delicious baking, her incredible Christmas trees, and for her love of Diet Pepsi, tea and hockey, especially the Calgary Flames.  The family farm was truly her happy place, and living there also gave her the opportunity to have many animals.  From dogs, to horses, to peacocks - Eva loved them all. 

  More than anything, Eva cherished her entire family.  Whether it be organizing large family functions, cheering them on at gymkhana and other activities, or always being available to babysit, she loved and supported everyone with her whole heart.  May precious memories of Eva provide comfort to all who were fortunate enough to have known her.     

  Left to mourn her passing and celebrate her life are her children, Rod (Bonnie) Graf, Roy Graf, Karen (Lorne) Dewart, Kimberly (Al) Wilbee and Robert (Carman) Graf; her grandchildren, Nathan, Rebecca (Riley), Rachel, Daniel (Abigail), Amanda (Alex), Cole, Christina (Brad), Kameran, Chandler and Avery; two great-grandchildren and two on the way; her brothers, Gene Bohmer and Clyde (Cheri) Bohmer; her sisters, Wendy (Stan) Francis, Cindy (Randal) McDonald and Bonnie (Greg) Siemens; many nieces, nephews and extended family; and countless friends.

  She was predeceased by her husband, Kenneth Alexander Graf; her parents, Earl and Lucy Bohmer; her grandson, Alexander; her brothers, Frank, Melvin, Elwood, Albert and Clarence; her sisters, Catherine “Dolly” and Louise; and an infant brother.

  Eva’s family would like to extend a special thank you to all those at Crowsnest Continuing Care who treated her with love and kindness.
