Eeva Paisley our beloved mother passed away on January 31, 2021
Mom was born in BC at the RCH in July 1935 to Mari and Yrjo Korhonen and grew up in Finland.
She was married in Finland to Heikki Numminen and returned to BC with two children Kimmo and Mari in 1959. Another child, Juha was born soon after and mom was busy working hard in the home and as a psych care aid at ValleyView and Essondale for 35 years retiring in 2000.
She remarried to Cecil Paisley and a fourth child Mia was added to the family.
Mom loved her family first and then her farm and livestock, raising show cows, dogs, chickens and various other animals. She was very social and made friends with everyone she met.
She had “SISU” a Finnish word for grit, resolve, inner fortitude and strength and she had plenty of it to overcome the challenges that life threw at her. She looked after everyone before herself.
She is survived by Kimmo (Donna), Mari, Mia (Tammy) , grandchildren Jessica, Jon, Sarah, Amy ,Ila and Eeva and great grandchildren Kambe and Benjamin as well as extended family and friends.
She is loved and will be missed by all that knew her.
Rest in peace mom.
Interment will be at a later date due to covid restrictions and donations in her memory can be made to the Maple Ridge SPCA.
