Eva was a kind and loving person to her family and everyone she knew. She worked joyously throughout her life in service to her churches and to the communities where she lived.

She loved to cook and while living in Pocahontas, VA she took great joy in the annual Hungarian Cabbage Roll Dinner at St. Elizabeth’s Catholic Church for over 50 years.
