BERNARDSTON - Eva Marie Bassett (Brown), 55, passed away at home on Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2013, after a battle with cancer.
Eva was born in Greenfield on March 5, 1957, the daughter of Vernon and Lena (Scognamiglio) Brown. She was a graduate of Pioneer Regional School in the Class of 1975.

Eva worked at Franklin Medical Center for 10 years. Later, she was the office manager of Station Class Construction for many years. Recently, she enjoyed her work at the Four Leaf Clover Restaurant, often bringing in baked goods for her customers.
Eva was devoted to caring for her late mother. She spent Monday evenings volunteering with Second Helping at St. James Church of Greenfield.
Eva devoted her whole life to her family and friends. She enjoyed spending time by the pool and was an avid cook and baker. She loved butterflies, long walks, puzzles, coffee on her deck and her family. Eva's laugh was infectious.
