Eva believed greatly in using her time and talent to make an impact on those around her, which she displayed in her many years of community service. She was a recipient of the Women of Achievement Community Service Award and the Genesis Community Service Award. She was an active member of the Muskingum County Community Foundation, Daybreak Rotary, the Beaux Arts Club of the Zanesville Museum of Arts, the Zanesville Downtown Improvement Committee, and the Genesis Foundation Dinner Theatre Players.

She was a former member of the Tri-Valley Board of Education, a former member of the local production of Handel’s Messiah, and an active member of Coburn United Methodist Church as co-chair of Vacation Bible School and a member of the church handbell choir.
Eva had an incredible love and passion for life and her family. She was happiest spending time with her grandkids, on the beach with family, traveling with friends, and enjoying a glass of chardonnay. Her other passions included scrapbooking, photography, and cheering on her Penn State Nittany Lions and Pittsburgh Steelers.
Eva had deep eternal hope in Jesus, and her faith kept her strong. Her family is comforted by their faith, and rests in the promise that God gives for eternal life with Him. The hope is that her light, and the light of Jesus, has been a shining example for the lives she has touched.
