Eva Maria Stevens

Eva-Maria Stevens, age 69 of Goodyear, AZ passed away peacefully in her home on November 21, 2019.  She was born and raised in Herzogenaurach, Germany to Hans and Maria Wewetzer. While living in Germany she met and married Edward Stevens in 1968. Eva-Maria and Edward moved to Chesterton, Indiana where they raised their two children. As her children grew older Eva-Maria decided that she was not done caring for others and enrolled in the local nursing college. She loved her job and specialized in long term care. Her kind and caring nature was felt by all of her patients.

In 1994, Eva-Maria chose to move out West where she met James R. White. The two quickly fell in love and married in 2010 and moved to Arizona in 2015. James and Eva-Maria loved to travel and would frequently go back to Germany to visit her family. She relished her visits and phone calls from her family and friends, relaxing outdoors and gardening.

Eva-Maria is survived by her husband James R. White; children, Michael Stevens (Mary) and Tracy Koontz (Matthew); Brother Paul ( Zdenke) Wewetzer.; and grandchildren Payton, Kaylee, Alexandra, Dayne and Corissa.

  6. Dear Michael,Mary & Family, Tracy & Family & Jim , I was very saddened to read of your loss . As you well know , your Dear Mom & I were friends since Tracy was a toddler . We both decided to make the move to Las Vegas & leave “ Cheesetown” behind as it had less & less to offer & we wanted warmer climate & better life for both.
    John & I often wondered how you 2 are & how big are your children by now. I miss your Mom very much. We used to spend hours visiting & than more on the phone afterwords in case we forgot something , never running out of interesting subjects to talk about .
    John & I truly treasured our Friendship with your Mom & if there is Heaven, they must have found each other . While sitting together they are ,sipping glass of Brandy or a glass of fine wine ,not concerned with any “ social distance or wearing face masks “ , but probably talking ,laughing & maybe feeling sorry for all of us left behind & wondering how in the heck we are going to restart our lives now . -:)
    Since we drifted apart, we did not know where & how to contact Eva ,for several years now .

    Jim left a brief message on my land line with no details nor his telephone number on how I could contact him.
    As I tried to search for your Mom’s address or a tel.# , I came across this very heart-wrenching announcement .

    Jim, I am terribly sorry for your huge loss . I know how much You loved Eva & what you meant to each other.
    People often say , “ I know how you feel” No they really don’t ! But, I do . Having lost John recently , I still am unable to fill this huge void, that terrible hole in my heart & I doubt that I ever will .
    Michael,Tracy & Jim , I don’t know how to comfort you . I will carry my special memories of Eva & our times spend together to rest of my life . I love you all.
