Obituary for Eva Marie Trout
Eva Marie (Neudorf) (Friesen) Trout
September 15, 1968 – March 9, 2020
Eve was born to William and Anne Neudorf on September 15, 1968, in Fort Vermilion, Alberta. She was a very content child, always trying to please others. Her childhood and early teenage years were spent in active play with her siblings, cousins and friends.
In 1986, Eve graduated from high school and moved to Grande Prairie for two years, getting her college degree for Early Childhood Development. She then moved to High Level and worked at the Daycare and Elementary School for a number of years.
On April 2, 1989, Eve married David Friesen and were blessed wth two children: Chance David Marcell, born June 4, 1993, and Chandyn Paige Evaughn Born July 20, 1994.
In 1996, the moved to the city of Grande Prairie. Eve’s dream was to raise her family on an acreage and this dream became reality in December 2001 when they purchased and moved to their own acreage. Eve was now in her element, renovating, decorating, and doing yard work. Eve loved taking care of her family. Her greatest love was her children, her pride and her joy and she loved spending time with them. Homeschooling Chance and Chandyn gave her the opportunity to make memories that would last forever. In this time, she was also busy helping David build and grow their business. Many good memories were made; raising their children, working, family camping trips, vacations… but with the sunshine also came the storms.
In 2009, after a difficult year, Eve and David separated and then later divorced in 2011. This was an extremely difficult time for the family. In 2010, Eve was diagnosed with cancer which required surgery. She then endured a number of treatments and her body responded relatively well. In 2013, the cancer became more aggressive and Eve was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. The treatments became more frequent and more intense.
On December 27, 2015, Eve married Jay Trout. They then built a house together in Grande Prairie. Eve spent more time in Scottsdale, Arizona, for more treatments, chemo, radiation as well as natural methods. Jay continued to care for Eve and took her on many trips for treatment.
Chandyn, Eve’s daughter and best friend, dedicated all her time caring for her precious mother, which meant the world to Eve. Eve had such a fighting spirit, no matter the pain or discomfort she never uttered a word of complaint and would take everything that came her way with a brave smile.
On August 1, 2019, Eve received a beautiful blessing, the birth of her first grandchild, Myles Jacob Doerksen, son of Chandyn and Jeff. Eve absolutely adored him and spent as much time with him as she could. On December 31, 2019, Chandyn and Jeff were married, and Eve gladly welcomed her son-in-law.
With these blessings also came more hardships. After a 10-year battle with cancer it was apparent that her health was declining rapidly. Since her brother Fred’s passing, as well as the news of her daughter’s pregnancy, Eve’s heart became very heavy and her desire to be obedient to her Lord intensified. She felt the need to reconcile her relationship with David.
In the last days the family unit was restored and reunited once again. They spent their time together sharing, laughing, and praying as a family. This act of obedience, as well as the answers to numerous prayers filled Eve with an indescribable peace. This peace was felt and cherished by all those who came into her presence. Eve passed away peacefully, as those who loved her so dearly, sat by her side.
Some verses that were precious to Eve:
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:6-7
Not to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. – Ephesians 3:20-21
