My thoughts and prayers are with Phyllis, Phil and their families. I remember Eva very fondly from Glass Works on Hampshire where I signed up for a beginners class she was teaching . Needless to say, I caught the fever and spent numerous hours there over many years. There I got to know most the close knit Shults/Snodgrass family members who wandered in there from time to time. Eva was undoubtedly the matriarch, loved and respected by her children and adored by her grandchildren. She loved nothing better than to chat with her customers but she was also a good listener. People sensed her interest and warmth and I know she touched many lives including my own.

My thoughts and prayers go to Phyllis and family for Eva. She was a long time friend and I loved her so much. May she rest in peace.

My condolences to the Shults family. It was great to have known Eva, such a wonderful lady!

Stan Branch on Aug 15, 2020

My condolences to the Shults family as each one remembers how Eva's life touched their life. Eva had a sweet testimony and was a true servant of the Lord. My parents considered Eva as a dear friend. I am sure her love for missionaries was a frequent topic of conversation with them. Phil and Phyllis, I will especially be praying for you. I have fond memories of my teenage years at Calvary with you. May God give you the comfort and strength you need each day.
