Eva W. Hallett, age 79, of Swanton, Ohio, passed away peacefully Sunday evening, November 12, 2023, surrounded by her loved ones, at Hospice of Northwest Ohio in Toledo.
Eva was born on August 20, 1944 in Holland, Ohio to Martin and Wealtha (Streaker) Urban. Eva was a 1963 graduate of Swanton High School. On August 20, 1966, she and her beloved husband, Denny, exchanged vows at St. Richard Catholic Church, marking the beginning of a beautiful journey together.
Eva was a member of St. Richard Catholic Parish, Swanton American Legion Post #479 Ladies Auxiliary and Wauseon VFW.
Eva loved playing cards. Whether it was a game of poker or rummy, she reveled in the friendly competition and laughter that filled the air. She also enjoyed playing bingo and trying her luck at casinos from time to time. Genealogy was another interest that Eva pursued with enthusiasm. She delved into her family history, uncovering stories and connections that spanned generations. Bowling was another activity where Eva found camaraderie and friendly competition with others who shared her passion for the sport. She had a deep affection for her furry companions, her kitty cats. Most of all, Eva cherished time spent with family and close friends. Day trips were a special activity that brought them all closer together.
Eva leaves behind a caring and devoted husband of 57 years, Denny Hallett; son, Michael (Samone) Hallett; grandson, Jason (Anna) Hallett; great-grandchildren, Amy and Malia; sister-in-law, Anna Catherine Urban; as well as many brothers and sisters-in-law along with numerous nieces and nephews who were all blessed to call Eva family.
Eva was preceded in death by her parents and eight beloved brothers—Martin, Bill, Johnny, Albert, Tom, Chuck, Gilbert "Gil"and Bobby Urban.
