Dick, Jean and Janet, I am sad to see the passing of Eve. She always had the greatest smile and laugh. She was loved by the Wynkoop family. May God be with you. Sandy Schwalm

Eva was my neighbor growing up and all the kids in the neighborhood thought of Eva as the neighborhood mom. Her daughter, Janet was one of us kids that hung around together. Thank you Eva for your wise words and may God put his arms around the family and embrace them during this difficult time.
