Eva Todd, 95, of Kansas City, Mo., passed away peacefully on Oct. 28, 2012, at Northcare Hospice.

Visitation will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1, at McGilley & Sheil Chapel. A funeral service will be held at noon Friday, Nov. 2, at the chapel. Burial will follow in Mt. Washington Cemetery.

Eva was preceded in death by her husband, Loyd Todd, and her beloved daughters Bernice Schuman, Betty Starr and Judy Cain.

She is survived by four children, Evelyn Mountain, Harold Todd, Donald Todd and Suzi Booh; 19 grandchildren; 30 great-grandchildren and 28 great-great-grandchildren.

Eva never missed a chance to get on the dance floor, tell a good joke or talk of her love of God. She was saved at an early age and attended Gashland Baptist Church. She was a loving mother and grandmother until the very end. She will be surely missed, but we know heaven shines brighter with her in it.
