Mary Eva was born on October 26, 1921, in Marion, LA, and went home to be with the Lord, surrounded by her family, on August 21, 2014, in Bossier City, LA.

She loved her family beyond measure. Her greatest joys were sewing for her girls, gardening and being with family. She was a shining example for God in every way. She was employed by Luv n' Care in Monroe as a foreman until the age of 80. Mary Eva was a hard worker, a wonderful hostess and the most unselfish person in the world.
