Eve Doris Boldman, passed away peacefully surrounded by family, on June 20, 2017 in Haslett, MI. Eve was born in Glenmont OH on March 7, 1932. The daughter of the late Herman J. and Cecil M. (Mullet) Purdy, Eve was the youngest of three children. She has two brothers: Milton Ewelle Purdy, who preceded her in death, and Robert Dean Purdy. Eve has been reunited in heaven with her son, Michael Lee (Peggy) Boldman, who preceded her in death.
Eve grew up in Ohio and raised her family there. She also lived in Colorado for 16 years and 5 years in Michigan. Eve lived a full and adventurous life and traveled often across the United States. Eve lit up a room with her warm smile, and she touched many lives with her love and humor. She was the ultimate extrovert and had many close friends. She spent countless hours, with anyone willing, playing cards and games. Nothing, however, eclipsed Eve's love and devotion to family. Her greatest joys came from time spent with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Eve will be treasured in memory by her children Ricky James (Janet) Boldman, David Robert (Debra) Boldman, and Cathy Sue (Larry) Greene, grandchildren Jodi (John) Conrow, Jaimi (Andrew) Weaver, Amanda (Darren) Gaskill, Jenna (Toby) Lichtle, step-grandson Brandon Greene, and seven great-grandchildren.

All are welcome to join in a memorial service to honor Eve on July 8th at 1:00 PM at Sherwood Memorial Gardens in Wooster OH. A private reception will be held for family and close friends of Eve following the service. The family requests that everyone wears red, Eve's favorite color.
