Eva's greatest pleasures were church worship, family and fishing.  She was one of sixteen siblings.

She leaves one sister, Ollie; one brother, Richard (Mary), and the remainders preceded her in death.

Eva married Johnnie Curtis Jackson (Buddy) on October 9, 1948 and to this blessed union five children were born.  Ella (James), Johnnie, Jr. (Barbara), Terry, Sharon and Deborah (Johnnie).  Her precious memories are cherished by her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren (a five generation status), and numerous nieces, nephews, and adopted family that there are to many to name.

What a legacy to be such an "Amazing Lady" that brought a smile when the mentioning of her name.
