Eva was a great lady. Eva and Sam had a booth at the flea market when my parents had theirs. She was always kind and ever a lady. I have fond memories of her and how she spoke so highly of her family and especially her Grand Children. I'm sure she will be missed so much.

My mother, Mary Savage asked me to send condolences for her. She remembers growing up and playing with her younger brothers and sisters. She remembers staying with her children, babysitting. She told me that Eva was a very nice friendly person. She remembers the time her brother, two of her brothers rowed to Canada in a boat. Needless to say they all got caught, but my mother's brother Bill who stayed hidden under the boat all night.
