  • Eva A. Farber, 87, a lifetime Mohawk Valley resident, passed away on Thursday, April 4, 2013, at St. Elizabeth Medical Center, with the love and support of her family at her side.
    Eva was born on July 20, 1925, in the town of Russia, the daughter of the late William and Eva (Barney) Christman. She attended Poland schools and on Aug. 11, 1942, was married to Carl Farber who passed away on March 24, 1985.
    Eva once worked in the library at Foley Middle School, for the Herkimer County Historical Society and the New York State Green Thumb Program, running the Craft Cooperative Store in the Herkimer King's Court Mall, and also worked as a chef's assistant at the General Herkimer Hotel. She was a former member of the town of Ohio American Legion Auxiliary and the Gray Woman's Auxiliary. A family oriented individual, Eva enjoyed nothing more than when she was in the company of her loved ones, and one of her most important ways of showing her generosity was through her numerous wonderful meals that she put on the table for her family and friends to enjoy. In her spare time, she enjoyed reading, crossword puzzles and, of course, the New York Yankees.
    She is survived by her sons, William Farber and his companion, Carol, of St. Johnsville, Carl Farber and wife, Iva, of Newport, Edward Farber and wife, Rebecca, of the town of Fairfield, Chris Farber and wife, Kathleen, of Little Falls, Larry Farber, of Herkimer, Hubert Farber and wife, Robin, of Ilion, and Richard Farber, of Ilion; her daughters, Mary Hoke and husband, Alfred, of Stratford, Carol Burdick and husband, Larry, of Herkimer, and Joanne Sterling and husband, Kevin, of Frankfort; 27 grandchildren; 37 great-grandchildren; her sisters, Leah Seelman, of Remsen, Emma Stafford, of Poland, Una Avery, of Ilion, and Wilma Beaudin and husband, Lester, of Poland; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. She was predeceased by her sisters, Betty Bussey and Mary Morgan.
    Visitation will be held on Sunday, April 21, 2013, from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Enea Family Funeral Home, 4309 Acme Rd., town of Frankfort, Ilion, 894-8000.
