Mrs. Eva Mae (Norton) Nelson, 91, of Meshoppen, PA, passed away after an extended illness on Feb. 2, 2013, at the Golden LivingCenter in Tunkhannock. She is now at peace and is reunited with those who have gone before her.
Born on Aug. 19, 1921, in Standish, ME, she was the devoted wife of the Rev. William C. Nelson, who resides in Meshoppen. She was a member of the Beaver Meadows United Methodist Church in Bradford County, where William had served as pastor until 2006.
Eva and William had planned on donating themselves to the Humanity Gifts Registry of Pennsylvania, so that medical schools may benefit from study and research, so she has already continued on her life’s journey of always helping others. Arrangements have been made for this by the Sheldon Funeral Home of Meshoppen.
A memorial service and Celebration of Life will be held Sunday afternoon, Feb. 24 at 1 p.m. at the Beaver Meadows United Methodist Church with Rev. Pat Newhart of the church officiating. Interment will be at a later date at the convenience of the family.
In lieu of flowers, those wishing to make a donation may do so in Eva’s name to the Beaver Meadow’s United Methodist Church, 5754 SR367, Meshoppen, PA 18630.
