Eve retired from the Joliet Arsenal after over 10 years of service and was also employed by Lyons Township High School. She proudly earned two college degrees after the age of 40. Eve enjoyed to garden, growing tomatoes and marigolds, and made quite possibly the best apple pie in the world. She also enjoyed watching the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago Bears but her dear grandchildren were the light of her life. Eve was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and sister who was loved by all and will be truly missed.
In lieu of flowers, masses said in Eve’s name would be appreciated.
