Eva arrived in the United States with their infant son, on Feb. 28, 1959, reuniting her family.

Eva was well known as an extremely talented and accomplished French cook and baker, and for her kindness and generosity. She took great pride in her home and in attaining her U.S. citizenship in 1970. She demonstrated her pride in her country by voting in all elections. She was fiercely devoted to her family. Eva will be sadly missed by her family, extended family, and friends.

Worth, Texas.
