Eva and her family followed in the steps of her older sister and immigrated to Philadelphia, PA to provide more opportunities and a better life for her family. Eva was a kind, caring, and loving woman who had a special place in her heart for children. She nurtured, protected, and welcomed all of the children in her neighborhood. Eva dedicated her life to being a homemaker and a child care provider for other family members. She was a social person who loved hosting dinner and houseware parties, always bringing people together. \n \nLater in life, Eva discovered her love for music and dancing.

She also completed the John Bockman Memorial Century Cycling Enthusiasts of Delaware Valley 100-mile ride that same year. Eva's positive and happy disposition never wavered, and she lived life to the fullest, finding her greatest joy when surrounded by her grandchildren, family, and friends.\n\nEva leaves behind a legacy of love and cherished memories.
