Eva was a long-time and active member of St. Charles Borromeo Church of Rapid River. Eva and Ned enjoyed traveling and visited almost all the States of the Union and wintered in Arizona in latter years. Baking, gardening, and doing puzzles were some of her favorite past-times but spending time with her family was her greatest joy. She is remembered by family and friends as always having a beautiful smile and an all around great person.
My sincere condolences to you all on the passing of a kind, gentle and wonderful lady. I have many memories of my years in Rapid River that are intertwined with your family. I remember also my several visits with Ned and Eva in Mesa, and I shall treasure every one of those memories. God Bless You.
