Eve Lyons was a wonderful person, who I had the pleasure of working with. This is such a great loss and she was so greatly loved, not only by her family, but for so many others in which she touched. I want to let the family know that my prayers and thoughts are with them at this difficult time.

Dear Cathy, Anne, Jackie & Family,
May you hold all the warm memories you have, near and dear to your hearts, always.
Thank you for allowing me to be with you and your mom at such a critical time.
Please know how grateful, honored and privileged I feel, to have been there, to be able to tell your mom how much she was loved by so many people, to sing to her (and not always in key) and to have held her hand.
Dearest Eva, May you be greeted at the Gates of Heaven with open arms by all your loved ones waiting for you.
Know you are loved and will be missed.
Journey on...

One of the most understandable woman I have known I am absolutely heartbroken. God bless her soul HE definitely has the red carpet rolled out for her.

Remembering our vacations staying at her place when we’d visit. Going to Hebbards and having a coke at the soda fountain, with the cousins:). What I remember most about Aunt Eva was that she was so full of life and personality, always laughing , but sometimes giving us what for when needed. We’ll always miss our mom, as you will miss yours. What makes it easier is knowing they’re all together and complete again. Much love to all❤️

I have so many vivid memories of your sweet mom (my fun-loving aunt) starting at a very early age. When visiting Massachusetts, my sister Linda and I would often stay with Eva and we loved being there and especially loved her. She will be sorely missed, but I know she is now with her parents and siblings and talking about "my Jackie," "my Cathy," and "my Ann." She so loved you all!! Our family sends many hugs your way.
