Her family was everything to her and she maintained close connections with them. She enjoyed her daily phone calls with her daughter, brothers, sisters, and friends and her many visits to Hawaii, Florida, and Oregon. Her devoted sons and their wives and families were always there to provide support and care and filled the family home with love and laughter.
Eva Jo was the kind of mother and sister everyone wished they had or aspired to be. She loved unconditionally, listened without judgment, and was thoughtful, kind, and generous.
