April 17, 1934 ~ October 9, 2018 (age 84)

DELAMATER, Eva Myrtle was born on April 17, 1934 to Frank and Honorah Porter at their home in Liberty, NY and was lovingly ushered into the presence of her precious Lord Jesus on October 9, 2018 after a lengthy illness.  She married her faithful, loving husband, William I. Delamater, Sr, in 1955.  They had three biological children, two adopted children and countless foster children.  Eva is survived by her husband and three biological children, Nancy J. Saggio (Dr. Joseph J. Saggio), William I. Delamater, Jr, and Frank C. Delamater (Jennifer R. Delamater).  She is survived by her grandchildren, Crystal Fuller, Tiana Boos, Rachelle Owens, Leah Saggio, Ashlynne Ross, Isaac Delamater, Ben Delamater, Alexis Campbell and Noah Delamater.  She is survived by her great grandchildren Mae, June, Kyree, Rinoa, Alasdair, Adelynne and Annorah.  She is survived by sister Nancy Calkin of Fort Pierce, FL, sister-in-law Mary Deretchin of Hillsborough, NJ, and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins perhaps an aunt or uncle or two, and many friends.  Eva was preceded in death by her two parents, her two adopted daughters Jody Delamater, and Jennifer Gerlaugh.


Eva’s love and dedication to her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren is obvious as soon as you walk into their home.  Pictures adorn every wall, nook and cranny.  She taught many children in Sunday School and most recently attended Prescott Valley Church of the Nazarene.  Many will remember her gift of hospitality and many claim her as their second mom.


A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Saturday, November 10, 2018 at Prescott Valley Church of the Nazarene, 3741 N Constance Dr, Prescott Valley, AZ 86314 from 11 AM to 2 PM, with an informal open house format with time to visit and share memories and food.
