“I'm so sorry for your loss, Vicky, Craig and family. I fondly remember talking about books with Aunt Eva, and I'll always think of her when I drink a vodka sour (I think that was one of her favorites?). May she rest in peace.”

“Eva (and Floyd) were my Godparents and mom and dad visited them often. I remember the house in Ute quite well and of course the lovely farm house. Eva made our wedding cake in 1971 and I remember mom making flowers with her.Through the years we often stopped to visit when we were in town. She loved her Coca-Cola! Eva was always considered a "classy " lady who had good taste. She loved the family reunions at Moorehead Park and was always interested in what her nieces and nephews were up to. We will miss her. We are attending another funeral in Idaho this week and will be unable to attend services. Our sincere condolences and prayers to the family. ”
