Aug. 10, 1918 - April 13, 2013

GUNNISON, Colo. — Beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and recently great-great grandmother, Eva Nyquist, passed away peacefully at the Gunnison Valley Hospital in Gunnison, Colorado on April 13th, 2013, at the age of 94, surrounded by family.

Funeral services will be 10:30 a.m. Saturday, April 20th, 2013 at First Presbyterian Church. Visitation will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday at the Clinton Chapel Snell-Zornig Funeral Home and Crematory. Burial will be in Springdale Cemetery. Pallbearers will be Kevin and Todd Marshall, Ken Cornwell, Harold Welcher, Jack Simpkins and Keith Miller.

Eva Mae Oliver Nyquist was born August 10th, 1918 in Clinton, Iowa, to Robert and Ruth Oliver. Eva was the fourth of eight children.

Eva was married to the love of her life, Kenneth Nyquist, for 72 long wonderful years; he preceded her in death on February 28, 2011. Ken and Eva started their life together on October 1st, 1938. They started a family soon thereafter with their son Chuck and two years later their daughter Marilyn.

Eva made a career of volunteering her time to help others. She volunteered 4,000+ hours over 32 years at Jane Lamb and Bluff Terrace Nursing Facility. There she mended sheets, clothes, attached buttons and any other task requiring someone’s caring attention. She also volunteered at the Skyline Center in the old Shick Complex in Lyons helping mentally challenged children. Later in life, she volunteered her time to Mt. Alverno Senior Center. There she visited patients and helped with the center’s patient activities.

She always enjoyed meeting and talking with the people she helped. Over the years she made a lot of special friends.

Riverside Chapel and her church family were very important to Eva. She gave freely of her time helping with the needs of her church. Eva was honored in her church newsletter, “When Riverside’s photo albums need to be updated, there’s Eva. When liturgists need to be lined up, there’s Eva. When home communion needs to be served, there’s Eva. The list is endless but her energy persists.”
