Eva Dianne


Our beautiful little girl, Eva Dianne Hoaby was born on December 14, 2008 to the proud parents of Joshua and Ashlee (Hersch) Hoaby at the Perham Memorial Hospital in Perham, Minnesota. Words cannot expressed how much you are loved, and always will be. Eva was always above average as she was reading before age one, and entertained family with flashcards. Over the next year as Eva learned to talk, she read billboads, signs, books and everything in between. Eva took pleasure in being outside, driving her jeep, playing in the park and jumping on the trampoline with her friends. She loved to be a Princess, she was so kind and thoughtful to her family and friends.

On August 30, 2013 Eva passed away at home surrounded by her loving family after a courageous love filled battle with an inoperable brain tumor at 4 years of age. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends. Lovingly meeting her in heaven are Eva’s great-grandparents: Dorothy Hersch and Joe Mather. We know they are taking good care of you.

We all miss you so much, Mom and Dad; your sister, Lyla; Grandparents: Kim & Mark Wright and Al Hersch, Pam Mather and John & Linda Hoaby; Great-grandparents are Carol Miller and Ellen Mather; all of your aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

All children are angels Eva, now you have your wings.

Funeral services were held on Saturday, September 7, 2013 at St. Peter’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in New York Mills, Minnesota with Pastor Muriel Hachfeld officiating. Eva was laid to rest in Woodland Cemetery, New York Mills, Minnesota. Arrangements were provided by the Karvonen & Son Funeral Home of New York Mills, Minnesota.
