She will be missed everyday.
Aunt Eva was a beautiful woman inside and out. She had a wonderful sense of humor. i remember spending nights there in Cottekill in the old farm house, the barn dance many years ago. I remember being there in July and we played Christmas carrolls.
I'll always remember her calling for us kids, "YOOHOO". So many wonderful memories. And when she and Dad were together they were like two little kids, giggling and laughing.
Now Heaven is celebrating her arrival
You were the best Aunt Eva!
You taught me grace in the face of adversity, compassion instead of judgement, and above all, faith, gratitude and hope. You were a guiding light in the defining moments of my childhood, and throughout so many moments in my life. I treasure the little notes you would send, and I smile at the memories of so many good times at your house. You gave us all unconditional love and acceptance, introduced us to wheat germ, and shared your love of butter, gardening and your disregard for one way streets. Thank you for all your gifts... rest easy in heaven with those you love.
God Bless... Maria
Aunt eva is nice person to everybody
Aunt Eva truly showed us all how to live: No matter what happens in life, your attitude can make or break you. She never lost her sense of humor, her goodness, and her faith in God.
Eva was an inspiration to all. A Legend. She shared and gave so much joy to all. Her sense of humor will be missed along with her company. She was my best friend. She is home with her loved ones and of course GOD who she was so faithful to. Love to all in the family. Love, Alice ❤️
What an amazing full of life woman. She will be sorely missed.
When I think of Aunt Eva, my heart beams with fullness. She had that effect on people. She never knew she had limitations or challenges... at least she never acted as though she did. I feel blessed to have known her- to have felt special in her presence as so many others did. She will forever have an impact on me. No doubt, the skies have gained an Angel and I’m quite sure those that were closest to her will forever feel her presence. May you all find comfort in this time of loss. Sending love, Gina D.
