Obituary

Eva Louise Lauve
August 7, 1958 – April 12, 2021
Wenatchee, Washington

Eva Lauve, 62, a lifelong resident of Wenatchee left this world on Monday, April 12 after an extended illness. Eva loved, and was truly proud of her family, and leaves one brother, three nieces and 2 nephews, 4 great nieces and 2 great nephews.

She was a graduate of Central Washington University where she earned her Bachelor Degree in Business Finance and Economics.

Eva started her career at Stemilt Growers as a cherry sorter, and through hard work and dedication worked her way up to the Food Safety and Scheduling Manager. Eva was a pioneer in food safety and was instrumental in launching the Safe Quality Food (SQF) program, and achieved the first ever SQF certification for a U.S. facility in 2000. In 2017 Eva received the SQF Lifetime Achievement Award celebrating her leadership, dedication and commitment to SQF and the food safety industry as a whole. Eva’s 40 year career was dedicated to encouraging, mentoring and coaching others to become successful in the industry. She was considered by many to be an expert in the Food Safety arena and was well known in the industry and spoke at many worldwide events.

Eva was an avid athlete and her passion was bowling and she cherished the lifelong friendships she formed among the bowling community. Eva was part of the Wenatchee Bowlers Hall of Fame, not only for her bowling skills, but also for her leadership and selflessness to the local bowlers association. Eva played in Wenatchee's elite woman's fast pitch softball league in the late 70's and early 80's. She played with the best women athletes in the valley and enjoyed being part of the softball community. She truly enjoyed traveling, attending Wenatchee Wild and Applesox games, and playing golf. Her light continues to shine, as her legacy has impacted many through her volunteer work in the community with the Follies Guild and through her loving personality and smile that touched many lives. Eva was thankful for all her friends.

The family respectfully asks that remembrances made for her remarkable life be contributed to the Community Foundation, 9 S Wenatchee Ave., Wenatchee WA 98801, please put "Follies Memorial Lauve" on the memo line, or the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, or the St Jude's Children Research Hospital.

Eva was an amazing person. I played softball with her for almost 15 years. We were fierce competiitors but the one thing we had in common was our strong will to win and we both played to our fullest ability 100% of the time on the field.
In our years after softball we both worked in the fruit industry for many years where we became friends . I always enjoyed a great game of golf with her where our competitive natures came alive.. Both knowing we were never going to conquer this stupid sport but we love it anyway.... Loved her spirit, competitive nature, and her humor... I will miss her very much..

I am another one of Eva's softball team mates from the past. Lots of fun summer games and tourneys, lots of sunburns and sliding "strawberries" I remember her as being a great competitor, always cheering others on and a team player for sure. One time she shared with me what they put in apple wax and I have never looked at beatles the same way since....not sure if she was messing with me, never have know for sure, but I have never forgotten her. Condolences to your family.

Randy, Kathy, and Family,
I'm so sorry to hear of Eva's passing. I'm remembering so many times we were together as kids with Eva, Hardy, Mom, and Dad at the old 22 N. Buchanan home. She was always a very determined and driven individual. It's easy to see how so many people have been touched by her presence and and how she accumulated so many life-long friendships.

My very best wishes,
Mark Winter

Eve was a wonderful person that I looked forward to seeing when visiting KC or Indy to see her brother, my sister and our niece and nephew. She had so many friends and family that admired her involvement and engagement in activities and the friendships that grew from those activities. Her example of living her life to the fullest is extraordinary. Rest In Peace Eve and I am lucky for having known you.

I met Eva in 8th Grade math class. Sizing her up from across the room, my only selfish thought at the time was that she looked like she could be a good softball player and our team needed one. It took some convincing over the next few days but she finally agreed to come to practice and check it out. As it turned out, she was one of the best catchers at a National Playing Level in Women’s Fastpitch ever. She could steal 2nd base more often than any player in the league. And, as it turned out, she was an even better friend.

Anyone who knew Eva was better for it. She was the kind of person who you immediately liked. She was so smart, had a great sense of humor, and she taught me a few things about how to be humble and how to be grateful. Most of all Eva was fearless; you knew she could do anything she put her mind to - and she did.

Eva’s family was always important to her and she was really proud of her brothers and each of their accomplishments. Eva loved her family and was always there to support, celebrate, motivate, and sacrifice; without complaint. It was just a fact.

I will miss Eva – but I get to keep the memories: Out of town Softball Tournaments, her ideal meal as chicken fried steak and no dressing on the salad, ice fishing at the pot holes with Randall, traveling cross county in a Ford Van to Wash DC, running thru Central Stain to catch the last train out, shaking her head at my dismal bowling skills, and just enjoying life as it was dished out. You just gotta smile when you think about it all.

Thank you Evita. I’ll miss you, but you are here in my heart.

Michelle
