Eveline loved animals. She was one of the founders of the Brigham City Humane Society.
She loved caring for animals, eating at the Idle Isle Cafe every Friday, and researching family history.
The family would like to thank Pioneer Care Center staff, neighbors Lennidean and Steven Christensen, and the Brigham City 9th Ward for their love and concern for Eveline.

My family remembers her fondly and we are so very sorry for your loss of such a beautiful loving person. She made a difference in many lives and will be missed!!!
Just a note to express our sympathy. No matter how inevitable or how prepared we are, it is a huge loss and void. Ed and I remember visiting with Eveline in London, off Queens Gate. We remember a bedsit. We remember an engaging conversation. Love,
Holly & Ed
I so enjoyed working with her oin Thursday's at the Family History Center. I will miss her greatly. She was always so sweet.
Eveline was truly a daughter, sister, a friend and follower of Jesus Christ. She loved her family very much and spent much of her time on her family Genealogy. She spent many many days of her life in The Family History Library and was so excited for the Brigham City Temple being built. We will miss seeing her at The Family History Library, but know that she is meeting with family that she has learned of through her genealogical endeavors. May her sisters and family be blessed with comfort and peace.
Dear Eveline: I am sad and miss you greatly, but good to know you are rejoicing with your family members on the other side of the veil. So nice to work with you for the last few years. We always got promptings and guidance to do the research, didn't we.
I did not know why the Lord wanted me to do England genealogy but found one good reason and a connection with you one day. Your ancestors who came to the U.S. in mid 1800's on the ship called Sheffieds were with a church leader Alexander Neibaur who happened to be the fourth great grandfather of the missionary Brent Neibaur who baptized me. People just don't run into each other. You had such a sweet spirit and are so kind all the time.
I worked with Eveline at Mann, Hadfield & Thorne law firm for many years. It was my first job as secretary in a law office, and Eveline was so kind and patient in helping me learn. She did such a good job teaching me, I worked there for 22 years. She loved her church and family, and always made sure animals were taken care of, if it meant keeping them for awhile herself. So sorry for your loss and you are all in our thoughts and prayers.
