Eva’s heart was always filled with love of her family; The Hotchkiss’, The Faraca’s, and Remo Tanese. She treated her nieces and nephews as if they were her own children and they were her world. Eva enjoyed taking trips back to Italy, traveling with her family in the U.S., the Green Bay Packers and watching Family Feud and Wheel of Fortune. Eva had a fun personality and quick wit. Up until the time of her death, Eva continued to cut coupons, shop, sip her afternoon coffee and scroll through Facebook.
