    Eva was a dear lady and good friend ,always great hostess when you visited her home
    I remember many Chiefs games at their house in crystal lakes . She would relax (clean) upstairs while Barney and I would scream and hollar in the garage .
    Her house was always spotless !!
    I seen here a few times in the last couple of years, even in her illness always had a smile and would recognize me .
    She will be missed by friends and family
