Eva K. (Trussell) Whaley, age 46, of Nevada, Missouri, passed away at her home on Thursday, June 25, 2020, surrounded by family. She was born on July 8, 1973, in Kansas City, Missouri, to Edward Nelson and Letha Trussell.
Eva loved celebrating Memorial Day weekend by camping with her family and friends. She was a very outgoing person, who always made people feel comfortable and happy. She was a wonderful and caring mother and grandmother.
Survivors include her children, Dylan (Christina) Ford and Roni Ford (Caleb Merony); mother, Letha Nelson; father, Edward Nelson; siblings: Megan Smith, Ashley Rigg, Matt Rigg, and Megan Rigg; grandchildren: Kylie, Carter, Tairance, and Lunari; numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins; and special friends: Ronnie Ford, Edris Ford, and Rachel Smith.
Once Eva was sent home from Joplin Mercy Hospital, Edris volunteered to care of her to make sure that she was very comfortable and well taken care of. For that we will always be grateful. Thank you, Edris.
