Eva was a homemaker for most of her life, devoting her time to raising her children. In her later life she worked for Good Samaritan for 13 years.
Eva enjoyed reading books, and watching The Lawrence Welk Show and Hallmark movies. Her greatest joy was having family visit and catching up on what was happening in everyone’s life.
