1951 - 2013 |
Eva Sue Malson, 61, passed away Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013, after a nearly four-month battle with pancreatic cancer.
Born Nov. 19, 1951, in Red Jacket, W. Va., to the late Thomas and Geraldine Cook, she was married to Rex Malson on July 4, 2003, and they resided in Painesville.
Eva was a dedicated office administrator to the Lake County Prosecutor's Office for 19 years. Prior to that, she worked for the Lake County Clerk of Courts. She also worked for the FBI in Washington, D.C. She loved her job, worked hard and wanted to work even after diagnosed with cancer. It was very difficult for her to give up working because she worked so hard her entire life, often working three jobs at a time to support and care for her family.
Once she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer on July 3, 2013, Eva was filled with shock, disbelief, depression, fear and pain. It was very difficult for her to come to terms with the prognosis of this horrible disease but her will to live shined through as she believed in miracles. Eva loved her family beyond what words can express and she wanted nothing more than to have more time to make beautiful memories with those she loved. She was an exceptional woman. Eva was loyal, hard-working, honest, trustworthy, responsible, giving, caring, thoughtful and kind. Sadly, she did not get her miracle but her memory will forever live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved her most.
In addition to her husband, Rex, Eva is survived by her three daughters, Lisa Diane, Leslie Marie, and Kristy Dawn, all of Painesville. She is also survived by her four siblings, Lora Dotson of Painesville, Phillip Cook and Joe Cook, both of Red Jacket, W. Va., and James (Linda) Cook of Newtown, W. Va. She had three grandchildren, Olivia Kate, Sawyer James and Hunter Joseph. Eva also had three stepchildren, Kari, Keith, and Brad; 10 additional grandchildren; and two sons-in-law, Jim D'Amico and John Wegloski.
Besides her parents, Eva was preceded in death by her loving brother-in-law, Johnny Dotson.
Friends will be received from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday at Spear-Mulqueeny Funeral Home, 667 Mentor Ave., Painesville, and from 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday at the Cornerstone Friends Church, 2300 Hubbard
Road, Madison. Funeral services will be 11 a.m. Saturday at the church.
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network at
to advance research, support patients, and create hope for those faced with pancreatic cancer. November is also Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month.
Please remember Eva in your heart and live your life to the fullest each and every day.
