Eva (Kvedar) Kodis, Hernando, FL, passed away peacefully at her daughter's home in Los Altos, CA, on April 5, 2012, after a brief but courageous battle with cancer. She was 80. Born on Feb 15, 1932, in Bristol, CT, she was the daughter of the late Cyprian and Eva (Stachkunas) Kvedar.
Predeceased by her husband Al in 2003, she is survived by her children, John Kodis and his husband Rick Parillo, of Hudson, MA; David Kodis and wife Carolyn, of North Reading, MA; Martha and her husband Lain McClatchie, of Los Altos, CA; Diane Kodis and her partner Alonzo Hooks, of Honolulu, HI. She is further survived by her five grandchildren whom she cherished. She also leaves behind her sister, Barbara Davis of Sudbury, MA; her brother Cyprian Kvedar and wife Georgia, of Las Vegas, NV; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Edward and Janet Hume, of Woodside, CA; as well as many nieces and nephews.
Eva was a 1953 graduate of Tufts' Jackson College for Women and went on to pursue a career in education, meeting her husband in the course of a teaching assignment in Ashland, NH. After marrying, both held teaching positions in the Wakefield, MA, public school system. After raising her family, Eva returned to teaching in the late 70s, working in the North Reading, MA, public school system.
In 1992, Eva and Al retired to Citrus Hills, FL. She enjoyed golfing and was a member of the Citrus Hills Golf and Country Club. An avid photographer, Eva enjoyed traveling and chronicling her journeys. Whether it was visiting her son John in France, traveling through Tuscany with her daughter Martha, enjoying the Hawaiian sun with her daughter Diane, or the Skyview's back nine with her son David, Eva had a photo of it.
Equally rewarding were the times she spent with all her friends in Citrus Hills. Eva always spoke highly of all her friends and neighbors, and routinely looked forward to Bridge Club, singing in the Citrus Hills Chorus, and morning walks around the neighborhood.
In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to the ., 1301 Pennsylvania Av., NW, Suite 800, Wahington, DC 20004.
