She was restful at her home surrounded by loving family. At 91 Eva had led a full life. She began her journey in England where she grew up and would eventually meet her husband during WWII. When the war was over the luxury liner, The Queen Mary, brought her and her two children and the other British war brides to America. She and her family settled back East where she was a loving mother. She added two more to her family and in 1959 moved to Albuquerque, where in 1961 she gave birth to her fifth child. Our mother was loving, selfless, fun, smart...an incredible woman who charmed the world around her. A woman of many talents who sewed and knitted beautiful clothing. Capable with an artist's bruise, a beautiful singing voice, and a gorgeous face. What really shined was her soul, as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside. Our mother has left her beautiful family here to carry on her loving spirit. Children: Carol Cline and husband Mike, Rio Rancho, J.D. Howard and wife Frances, Albuquerque, Pamela Dianne Whiteman, Albuquerque, Lori Clay and husband Calvin, Corrales, Robin Howard Ulman and husband Rob, Placitas.
