Eva Marie Grace Denhart was born on July 8, 1991 in Monroe, Michigan. She was the baby of the family, joining her three older siblings and parents Dennis and Shirley (Polley) Denhart. Eva was proud to have completed the Educational Program at the Monroe County Intermediate School District on June 8, 2017. She was very creative and enjoyed painting with watercolors. Eva loved country music and would listen to her favorite songs on repeat.
Eva packed a big personality in her small frame. She was always talking and would share her thoughts with anyone who would listen. Eva never met a stranger and was proud to introduce Dennis as her father everywhere the pair went. She played an ongoing game of Tag, cheerfully proclaiming “tag you’re it!” and never passed up an opportunity to swing at the park. A sassy little thing, Eva was happy no matter what her circumstances were. She faced any challenge with a smile and was determined to keep moving forward. Eva may have cursed her doctors during her medical treatments, but she always greeted them with a hug afterwards.
