September 5, 1929- September 25, 2015
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mom, Evana Lesac on September 25, 2015.
Born in 1929, Evana came to Ontario, Canada in 1959 from her homeland Slovenia.
She arrived in the Comox Valley in 1969 with her husband Petar and their children. She is survived by her children Jerry Lesac of Chilliwack, Johnny Lesac of Vancouver and Wendy Glowasky, son-in-law Steve (Comox) and grandson Jason of Nanaimo. Eva was predeceased by her 2 brothers and 2 sisters of Podulce Raka of Slovenia. Eva was a devoted wife, mother and compassionate friend. She was a hard worker at home and in the service industry. Throughout her life she loved cooking her delicious Slovenian dishes for her family and enjoyed her vegetable and flower garden.
Evana spent her last 5 years in Eagleview extended care after suffering a stroke in 2010. There she enjoyed friendship with many residents and staff, while she braved the ongoing hardships of her failing health.
The family extends profound gratitude to the caring physicians, nursing staff and the love and support of many family and friends.
A mass of Christian Burial to be held at Christ the King Catholic Church in Courtenay, Friday, October 9 at 11:00am.
