    Speaking on behalf of the Bellingham High School Class of 1956, we send condolences to Eva’s entire family. We enjoyed visiting with her at our reunions. The ones we love are never gone, they live within our hearts.

  2. When I lived off campus while attending WWU in the late 70’s my path to classes took me by Aunt Eva’s house and Grandma Edna’s and Grandpa Earl’s house. On my way back to my apartment Grandma Edna would always tell me what was going on in the neighborhood and Aunt Eva provided me with baked goods. Good times!
