Eva Elizabeth (Meyer) Nash

September 28, 1971 ~ March 16, 2022 (age 50)

Obituary

Eva Elizabeth Nash, 50, of Davenport, Florida - formerly Madison, Connecticut - was welcomed home to be with the Lord on March 16th, 2022, after a long, arduous, and courageous, battle with Gardner's Syndrome. Eva is the beloved wife of Paul Nash. A cherished daughter, mother, yaya, aunt, cousin, friend - she devoted her life to loving and supporting her family and those around her.


 

Born to Constance Canever Meyer and the late Amos John Meyer II in Southfield, Michigan, on September 28th, 1971. Eva grew up dreaming of a life filled with travel, art, writing, animals, family, and faith. As a young child she set her sights on traveling the country in a neon pink semi-truck aptly named The Pink Lady. While this endeavor lost appeal as she got older her bright and adventurous spirit never ceased. A woman of wit, humor, joy, and optimism, she could make a new connection almost anywhere at any time. It was not uncommon for a routine phonecall to pay a bill to end after two hours of laughter as if they were childhood friends. She was cherished by many for the love she exuded in her relationships. Eva graduated from Staples High School of Westport, CT, and was accepted into Pepperdine University for Creative Writing studies. Following a medical emergency in the family Eva left university early on to care for her nieces and nephew back home in Connecticut. A commitment she went on to devote over two decades to, raising and loving them as her own. 


 

Eva loved Christ and led many people to the Lord through prayers and an exemplary lifestyle of charity and giving. She was featured in two chapters of Eric Metaxas’ book “Miracles” that chronicled a few of the extraordinary events in her life. She was proud of her heritage, most notably starting with her father, the late Amos John Meyer II, a famous Theoretical Physicist, Cosmologist, and prolific Inventor, who solved the Unified Field Theory. He instilled in her endless curiosity for the world around her and an unwavering faith that gave her the strength to endure years of ongoing pain do to her illness. Her family tree includes many well known Christians, including John Rogers, who, because of translating the Bible into English for the common man, became the first martyr at the hand of Bloody Mary in 1555. 


 

In addition to her husband, the love of her life and soulmate, Paul Nash, Eva is also survived by her mother Constance Canever Meyer of Davenport, FL, her sister Michelle Ortz of Superior, WI, her children [and adored grandchildren] Katherine Meyer [Emma, Augustus] of Westport, CT, Kelly Ebel [Lincoln] of Swansea, MA, Susan Ebel [Autumn, Freyja, Naya] of Fairfield, CT, Jonathan Meyer Nash of Davenport, FL, her bonus children through marriage Chris Andrea Nash of West Haven, CT, Timothy Edward Nash of Lexington, MA, Trevor Anthony Nash of Lexington, MA, her nephews and nieces Nicholas Ebel - wife Kelly Ebel and grandniece Emily - of Reno, NV, Jeremiah Ebel of Storrs, CT, Victoria Ebel of New Haven, CT, as well as her revered medical alert dog, and forever companion, Hobbes II.
