For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

~Isaiah 9:6~

Eva Mae Frey Morris

December 17, 1929 – December 11, 2020

A resident of Hillsdale, Eva Mae died the evening of Friday, December 11th at Richard Murphy Hospice House in Hammond. She was born December 17, 1929 in Amite, Louisiana and would have turned 91 on her birthday. She was a graduate of Southeastern Louisiana University with a major in library science. Eva Mae was preceded in death by her husband, Edwin, of 55 years and leaves behind their four children: Sherry Dale Morris Bingham and her husband, Charles Michael Bingham, Milton Douglas Morris, Julie Claire Morris, and Melanie Anne Morris Dribben. She is also survived by four grand children: John Philip Bingham and his wife Alexandria Jillian Bingham, Lydia Katherine Dribben, Eli Samuel Dribben, and Lei Anne Dribben; and three great grandchildren: Hunter Wyatt Bingham, Skylar Jane Bingham, and Marshall Charles Rider Bingham; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, Samuel Douglas Frey and Lou Eva Doughty Frey; her grandson, Ethan Taylor Dribben; her sister, Ruby Kathryn Frey Thompson and her husband, Robert Young Thompson, Junior; her brother Samuel Douglas Frey, Junior; her brother Robert Lee Frey and his wife, Margaret Sue Kemp Frey. As a young girl, Eva Mae was never seen without a cat in her arms. She loved living in the country and spending time in nature — walking, birdwatching, and using her metal detector to discover hidden treasures. Throughout her life she was an avid reader and a lover of the written word. She was keenly interested in genealogy and family history, tracing her roots back to the Mayflower. Eva Mae loved “pretty things,” especially the beauty and magic of Christmas, and instilled that love in each of her children. She ensured that her children experienced a creative, imaginative, and broadened childhood. Early on she established a spiritual foundation by ensuring that her children were thoroughly instructed in biblical matters through regular church attendance, Bible School, and Christian education. “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies… Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.” Proverbs 31:10 and 28. She will be greatly missed by her family and the many friends she leaves behind. Visitation will be held at McKneely Funeral Home in Amite from 10:00 am until noon on Friday, December 18th. Funeral service will be a private family affair. The family thanks you for respecting their wishes at this difficult time. Interment will be in Roberts Cemetery, Hillsdale.
