The memory of Eva Marie lives on through the aptly named Eva Marie Cancer Support Fund. Eva Marie’s journey battling cancer began in 2010 and lasted until her passing in 2020. Cancer however, was what she had and not who she was.
Eva Marie from a young age was described as being a content child, always trying to help others, which is why it was no surprise when she decided to pursue her bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Development working in Daycares and Elementary Schools for many years and later home schooling her two children, which was one of her greatest joys. Along with education, Eva Marie enjoyed creating a wonderful home environment through renovating, decorating, and doing yard work.
As a testament to the kind and loving person Eva Marie was, and in wishing to create awareness and funds to support those and their families battling cancer, Eva Marie’s brother John Neudorf, owner of NTL Pipelines began raising money with their new, custom, bright pink side boom. The custom boom is named Eva Marie, and in 2019 entrusted the proceeds from this to go towards the creation of the Eva Marie Cancer Support Fund at the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta.
At the end of November 2020, NTL Pipelines sold their equipment through Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers, including the pink side boom. The Neudorf’s donated the full proceeds of the sale of the side boom to the Eva Marie Cancer Support Fund. Provincial Rentals, another local company and the Neudorf’s, were the successful bidders on the ‘Eva Marie’ side boom and plan to continue renting it out and donating the proceeds to the Eva Marie Cancer Support Fund. Her legacy will continue with strong support for this cause in our region!
In 2020 the Eva Marie Cancer Support Fund granted to the Alberta Cancer Foundation and Sorrentino’s Compassion House.
