Eva Huddleston Obituary
Eva Huddleston, 56

Eva Marie Briggs, Huddleston, age 56, went home to be with our Lord and Savior on Saturday, May 2, 2015. She passed away after putting up a valiant fight to find and be at peace.

Our beloved Eva is survived by her husband Jimmy Dean (Yellville), her sons Jeffrey A. Briggs (Oklahoma) and J.R. Huddleston (Florida), a daughter by marriage Bee Buckingham (Florida), grandchildren Iseah (Illinois) and Penelope (Florida), sisters Pamela Parks (Oregon) and Catherin Buchanan (Virginia) and numerous nieces and nephews.

Eva is preceded in death by her father Bryant and mother Shirley Briggs and two brothers Scott and Eugene Briggs.

Eva and Jim were married in Bethel Baptist Church in 1979, (Paragould, Arkansas). Eva was of the Catholic faith.

Eva was a nurse since 1982, retired Sunday School teacher, mentor to women and children, a member of Benedictine Oblates Holy Angels Convent (Jonesboro), volunteer at St. Bernards Hospital and reader at Yellville Summit School. Eva enjoyed Christian Fellowship, swimming, sewing, Bob Segar, cooking and canning. On many occasions she took care of children in need, in transition, or just lost and although they were not her own she treated them as her own.

Eva loved Spring and Summer and beautiful fabrics. Eva has many friends and neighbors she called "Family" and loved teaching kinds to swim and cook "So I could play and eat!" she would proudly say. Eva was the type of person, who on many occasions, would go without so those she loved did not have to. The Love she received from Friends and Family she never took for granted and was always appreciative.

A prayer service will be held at The Holy Angels Convent, Tuesday, May 5, 2015 in Jonesboro, Arkansas and a second prayer mass service will be Wednesday, May 13, 2015 at 12:00 noon at St. Andrews Church in Yellville, Arkansas.

It was Eva's wish for donations to be sent to The Wounded Warrior Project, in lieu of flowers.
