She is survived by her daughter, Kay (Wayne) Wiseman; and several nieces and nephews.

Eva joined Branchville Methodist Church at the age of 13. She later became a member of Lincoln Hills Methodist Church and she has been a member of Greenwood United Methodist Church since 2002. She filled many positions in her church and remained a faithful member throughout her years of membership.

Following graduation from high school, she attended Oakland City College where she earned her teaching degree. She began her teaching career in 1939 and after 40 years of teaching, she retired in 1981. She also attended Evansville College and received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees and her reading endorsement from Indiana University at Bloomington. Most of her teaching was done in Perry and Crawford counties.

Eva had memberships in Delta Kappa Gamma Sorority, ISTA, IU Alumni, Oasis Club, English Civic Club, Eastern Star, Senior Citizens, American Red Cross and Extension Homemakers.

She also spent countless hours volunteering for the library, her daughter’s classroom, her church, and as an adult tutor for literacy. She also loved to visit her friends and neighbors who were shut-ins.

Because of her love for teaching children, memorial contributions may be made to Crawford County Public Library children’s fund or the Lincoln Hills United Methodist Church Memorial Fund.
