Eva May Webb, beloved wife of Paul Webb and mother of Mary Bittner, Charles Webb (deceased), and Leslie Webb passed away on July 19, 2009, at the Carson Valley Residential Care Center in Gardnerville, Nev. Eva and Paul settled in Carson City almost 12 years ago where they became active community members with the Carson City First United Methodist Church, the American Legion Unit #4, and other worthwhile community activities.

Eva was not only a dedicated mother of three but a hard-working executive in the banking business. She retired in 1989 as the vice president of corporate trust for Security Pacific National Bank, where she was in charge of all corporate stock transfer for the bank. Eva was known for her commitment to excellence and strong leadership abilities in her 31 years with the bank.  Retirement did not slow Eva down, in fact she became increasingly busy doing volunteer work for the West Covina Police Department while caring for neighborhood friends unable to care for themselves. Once in Carson City, Eva continued to be actively engaged in volunteer work at the local homeless shelter. She was a committed member of the United Methodist Women's Club and the American Legion Auxiliary, gaining notoriety and recognition for her famous cooking.

Eva led a strong Christian life, giving her time and devotion to her church and daily prayer.  She embraced her recent diagnosis of cancer with courage and grace. Eva should be remembered for her strong sense of family devotion and loyalty to friends. Eva is survived not only by Paul her husband of 61 years and their two children but by her grandchildren Katie Jo and Max, her son-in-law Howard and daughter Elizabeth, Pam Idriss, step-grandchildren Rich and Lisa Flores and great-grandchildren Joelle and Samantha.

A celebration of Eva's life will be 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 1 at the First United Methodist Church at Division and Musser Streets in Carson City. In Eva's spirit of Christian giving the family asks that any memorials be given to either the Carson City First United Methodist Church, the Make a Wish Foundation or the Barton Hospital Foundation Hospice fund. FitzHenry's Funeral Home and Crematory is caring for arrangements.
