KEVIL — Former Kevil resident Eva Nell Crews, 91, died on Thursday, September 5, 2013, at Catherine Kasper Home in Donaldson, Indiana.
Mrs. Crews was born in McCracken County and lived there for most of her life. She graduated from Heath High School in 1938 at the young age of 16. Several years later, she met the love of her life, James Alfred Crews, and they married in 1943. She was a devoted mother to their son, a longtime member of the McCracken County Homemakers, and a lifelong member of Newton Creek Baptist Church. She also worked as a bookkeeper for 13 years.
In retirement, she and her husband, Alfred, enjoyed bus trips across the country, visiting their grandchildren and playing Rook with friends and family. She was known for her exuberant laughter, her wonderful desserts, and her love of all things blue.

She is also survived by a special cousin, Louise Cunningham.
