Formerly of New Ringgold, PA, Eva lived in Quakertown, PA and Coopersburg, PA before moving into assisted living at Mifflin Court where she resided for the past 5 years. Eva was a member of St. John Lutheran Church, Quakertown. Eva was especially proud of her upbringing as one of nine children on a self-sufficient farm.
