She was born in Cartersville on Dec. 29, 1935, to the late William Bill and Effie Mae Haney, and grew up in Centre, Alabama before later moving to Atlanta. She then lived most of her adult life in Douglasville before relocating to Newnan in 2008.
Eva retired from Parkway Regional Hospital, was a member of Summit Church in Newnan, and was loved by all who were blessed to know her. She was a praying woman and will always be remembered as a strong and courageous woman of faith, always helping others and being a blessing to many.
