Eva Brandon

Eva A. Brandon (nee Kolvar), 63, of Riverside, died on October 14, 2018. 

On Oct. 6, 1979 she married her high school sweetheart, Donald, and together they raised three children. She always gave her time and heart to those she loved and asked little in return. 

Her smile was beautiful, her glow was radiant, and her love was abundant. She loved nature, her precious pup, Annie, and music. What she enjoyed most was spending time with her family and friends. 

Ms. Brandon was the wife of Donald Wayne Brandon; the mother of Jason (Nikki) Brandon, Christie (Andrew) Berry and Michelle Brandon; the grandmother of Zoey, Ainsley and Audrey; daughter of the late Ilja and Olga Kolvar; the sister of Tamara (Greg) Kuna and Peter (Caroline) Kolvar; and the aunt and friend of many. 

Visitation will take place from 4 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 2 at Hallowell and James Funeral Home, 1025 W. 55th St., Countryside. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3 at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, 124 N. Spring Ave., LaGrange.
