Eva Lemons Wisdom Stolz

NORMAN — Eva Lemons Wisdom Stolz passed from this life Saturday, July 6, 2013, surrounded by several family members. She was born Sept. 25, 1935, in Marlow to D.C. and Bonnie Lemons.

Eva graduated high school in Asher and later worked for many years at the Solo Cup Company of Ada. She attended the Church of Christ in Asher, where she met and fell in love with Eddie Stolz, who had been preaching at the church there for a number of years. They were married on June 19, 1993, and celebrated 20 very happy years together.

Eva was loved by everyone who knew her. She was always thoughtful and kind, and she loved serving others. She never failed to keep herself and her home clean and beautiful. Eva was the epitome of the word “lovely.” Her inner beauty was the loveliest part of her. She rejoiced in her family and in the love of her husband. Words cannot begin to express our gratitude to God for allowing us to have such a beautiful person in our midst.

She was preceded in death by her first husband, Edward Wisdom; by her father Dalva Lemons; her mother, Bonnie Lemons; her brother, Curtis Lemons; and a granddaughter, Esther Wisdom.

Eva is survived by her loving husband Eddie Stolz; her daughter, Cathy Wisdom; her sons Eddy, David and Freddy Wisdom and wife Jeanne; 12 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her four stepchildren, Gary and Mark Stolz, Benay Deckard and Amy Rea; 10 stepgrandchildren and eight step-great-grandchildren.

Special thanks to many ladies of the Alameda Church of Christ, senior companions and respite care workers of Sunbeam Family Services and the staff of Heartland Hospice for the loving assistance given prior to Eva’s passing.

Donations may be made in Eva Stolz’s name to the Alzheimer’s Association, 151 48th Ave. SE, Norman, OK 73072 or to the Alameda Church of Christ.
