Mrs. Eva Leona Harrell, age 76, of Cumming passed away Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2011, at the residence of her daughter in Sandersville.
Eva is best described as a woman with a colorful personality who lived life to the fullest. Born in Dallas, Texas, she moved to Atlanta in 1954 where she soon became manicurist to Atlanta's movers and shakers. During most of her 33-year career as a professional manicurist, her client list read like "who's who in Atlanta."
Eva had a variety of interests including photography, hunting, fishing, gardening and dancing. She became better known for shooting pictures of animals rather than hunting with a gun. Many of her photographs are treasured by family and friends. She was an animal lover, catching feral cats and taking them to the vet for sterilization and shots, and finding homes for them. She would drive two hours to feed the foxes that came to her lake house searching for food, which gave Eva opportunity to snap wonderful photos.
Eva was preceded in death by her husband, Charles Harrell; her parents, William Joseph Rawls and Lottie Mae Brewer Rawls; siblings, Mary Frances Huggins, Beatrice Nicodemus, Jaunita L. Baker and William J. Rawls Jr.
Eva is survived by one daughter, Vangie (Tony) Wallace of Sandersville; one son, Ted (Dawn) Thomas of Dacula; grandson, Taylor Thomas; granddaughter, Haley Wallace; several sisters-in-law; several brothers-in-law; numerous nieces and nephews; and best friend of more than 55 years, Wynette Miller.
She was loved and will be missed by the members of the World's Greatest Coffee Club in Cumming, along with many others who knew her.
A memorial service for Mrs. Harrell will be held Saturday, Sept. 17, at 5 p.m. in the Ingram Funeral Home Chapel in Cumming.
