Her eldest brother Robert Adams who is deceased and her loving sister Minnie Lee Ancrum. Robert and Elenora Adams were passionate entrepreneurs who owned one of the best neighborhood stores in Walterboro. Eva’s parents also owned a beautiful church in Walterboro. While Eva’s father, Robert ran the neighborhood store, Eva’s mother, Elenora Adams was the Pastor of the church and made sure her children attended Sunday service and bible study.

After their marriage they moved to the Bronx, New York where they had three children Gwendolyn, Carol and Albert.

In 1965, Albert and Eva Morris purchased a brand-new house in Wyandanch, New York and moved their family out of the Bronx. Eva devoted her time caring for her children while they were young keeping them busy with various after school activities. Eva loved experiencing new places. Every summer she would take her children on new adventures where they would experience the various wonders of the United States. Once her children reached their teenage years, she decided to join the work force as a sales associate for Modell’s Sporting Goods. She worked for Modell’s for many years before retiring as a department manager. One of Eva’s satisfying accomplishments was becoming a union representative for Modell’s store employees. All the employees loved Eva because she truly cared about them and was always eager to fight for what was fair.

Eva and Albert were married for 42 years before Albert was called home to be with the Lord. Eva was very family oriented. She was a kind hearted women who placed her family above everything.
