Eva was a dedicated wife and mother, making many sacrifices for her children and always putting her family first. A fabulous cook and baker, she enjoyed collecting cookbooks and recipes. She was well known in Windber for her homemade breads, pastas, desserts and Italian cookies, and would always provide her children and grandchildren with to-go care packages when they visited. She was a deeply religious woman, a member her entire life of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, where she volunteered for decades. Eva loved being part of St. Anthony’s Choir, where she sang soprano for over 60 years. She also volunteered as a religious education teacher, instructing children for more than 20 years. She was devoted to her husband, Jim, to whom she was happily married for 64 years. She will be remembered by her children for her constant love and prayers. A private Funeral Mass for family only (because of COVID) will be celebrated at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, by Eva’s grandson, the Rev. Anthony Dill, who she was joyful to see ordained in 2012. The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation to the caring staff of Autumn House West and Grane Hospice Care for their compassion. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, 2201 Graham Ave., Windber, PA, where Eva was baptized, met her husband at a church bazaar, married him, and was a faithful parishioner for more than 60 years.
