Obituary for Eva Marie Fuchs

The Fuchs family was truly blessed when Eva Maria Franzke agreed to marry Charles Fuchs and brought European influence to the Fuchs family.
Eva Maria Fuchs passed away peacefully on May 5, 2018 with her husband of 55 years at her bedside. She was 81 years old.
Born in Gollnow, Germany, to Bruno and Maria Franzke, on January 27, 1937, Eva was the eldest of two girls. Her sister, Gisela, still lives in Germany. After successfully passing her abitur in Aschaffenburg, she completed an apprenticeship as an Industrikauffrau (industrial clerk) and went to work for Linde in her hometown. Eva and Charles met and dated while he was stationed in the army in Aschaffenburg. He convinced her to join him in Oregon so they that could marry. They were wed on October 26, 1962 in the United Methodist Church in McMinnville. In 1969, their first son, Charles Patrick was born to them. Then two years later, realizing they could do better, they had a second son, Eric Christopher. Eva worked for Linfield Research, then Oregon Mutual Insurance before she had children. Later in life she chose to return to work with the McMinnville School District for almost 20 years.
Eva was always very active, enjoying walking, jogging, golf, yoga, Tai Chi, skiing, and many other activities. She loved working outside in her yard, and neighbors would often stop by to complement her on the beautiful flowers and garden. She always took a great deal of pride in talking about her granddaughters, Shelby and Stephanie, and enjoyed spending time with them.
Eva was loved by everyone she met, and she always brought joy into the room. She had an amazing group of longtime German friends that loved to get together and socialize. During her final days, she was surrounded by their love as well as the love of her family.
She is survived by her husband Charles, her sons Patrick (Lisa) and Eric, her grand-daughters Shelby and Stephanie, her sister Gisela (Manfred).
A celebration of life service will be held at 10:00 a.m. Tuesday, May 15, at the chapel of Macy & Son. A reception will follow at the home of her son Eric, 2608 NW Chardonnay Drive, McMinnville.
