Frank,

Thank you so much for finding this. What a goldmine of information and you found the right person. Eva was a great aunt of mine who I never met. Sad story, but I was contacted a month ago or so from the Coroner's office in Florida. At 106, she was in hospice care and passed away in Jan of this year. They were unable to find any next of kin to come claim her. The county paid for her cremation and her ashes were placed on a shelf in a mortuary. What an incredible life to die alone and not be claimed. That just broke my heart so I paid to have her ashes shipped to me in Oregon where I intend to spread her ashes in the Pacific ocean where my mother's ashed were spread. I am very, very grateful for you finding this article and not only help me with my family tree---but, now have a wonderful story of her life. This act of kindness will surely bring you good karma. Warm regards, Lisa
