Eva J. Longacher, 90, of Dover (Parral) died Friday, Dec. 11, 2020 in the Country Club Center at Dover following a period of declining health.

Eva was a staff nurse at the former Valley Manor Nursing Home for 17 years and also worked for the Park Village Health Care Center at Dover.

Born July 3, 1930 in New Philadelphia, she was the daughter of the late Thurman and Lillian (Tschantz) Crites. She was also preceded by her husband of nearly 50 years, Kenneth E. Longacher who died Feb. 22, 2002; a son, Billy Longacher, a brother, James T. Crites and a sister, Doris Wassem.

Eva was a 1948 graduate of New Philadelphia High School and a 1952 graduate of the Massillon City School of Nursing. She had many interests over the years that included baking and had the nickname “Mrs. Good Cookie.” She also enjoyed crocheting and knitting, and was an avid reader.
