I am grateful to have known and served with, and for a time served, this wonderful lady. She was strong, strong willed, sharp, and very capable. She taught good things, exemplified devotion and faithfulness, and was a lovely lady. I was blessed to have had Bro. and Sis. Horne (Eva and Derlin) as mentors while working on a planning committee for a church sponsored large youth conference back in 1977-1978. That was a long time ago! But I still remember it like yesterday. She is at peace now; her mind is sharp again. She is with loved ones and the Lord.
I apologize, family for having missed the viewing and funeral. You are all in my thoughts and prayers at this time of transition, and adjustment.
I’m sooo sorry for your loss. Eva worked with my husband, Dick Sloan and I have fond memories of that time together. I’m sure Heavenly Father has her in His care, maybe she and my hubby will find each other and reminice old times. 🙂 My thoughts and prayers are with you all as you navigate this time together.
Love and best wishes,
Evah’s family: So sorry to hear of her passing ~ Sadly, I had not had any contact with Evah for years, especially since Derlin passed. We served in many Church positions, either together or in “collateral” positions, and I was always impressed with her talents in whatever calling she had in The Church. She was a great Young Women’s leader for my daughters. I have been blessed to have known her, Derlin, Larry and Shellie. Sorry I didn’t get to know John. May the Lord bless you all.
I had lost track of Evah while we were on a mission, so haven’t seen her in years. She’s a cousin (I’m also a descendant of John Harvey) but we actually met when she came to a piano recital for some of her grandsons in my home. Later we were delighted to discover we were relatives. She’s a remarkable woman— beautiful and compassionate. I’m sorry for the family’s loss but grateful for grand reunions, especially with her sweet hubby. Love you so, Evah!
