Eva Irene Sayre

May 23, 1925 - May 17, 2018

The Matriarch of our family, Eva Irene Sayre of McMechen, WV, went home to be with her lord and savior, Jesus Christ, and join her beloved husband, Telford, of 75 years on May 17, 2018. She passed at Liza”s Place surrounded by loved ones as she always was throughout her 92 beautiful years of life. She was a dedicated wife, loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
Eva was born on May 23, 1925, in Millwood, WV to the late Elijah & Lucy Flesher.
She was a retired employee of the Kroger Company and a member of the Benwood-McMechen United Methodist Church. Eva enjoyed cooking for her family, gardening, working crossword puzzles and talking with people. She never knew a stranger. Her entire life she always sacrificed her needs for the needs of her family and others. She always had a smile on her face, and an undescribable strength that inspired all. She would look at the positive side of situations and say “There’s nothing that you can do about it anyway. It will be alright.” She was a friend and “ grandmother “ to all.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Telford; four brothers, Everette, Lloyd, Raymond and Robert Flesher and sister, Ethel Markwell.
Her legacy lives on in her three children of whom she was most proud, Michael (Diane) Sayre, Patricia (Gary) Sheppard and Janet (Norman) Rhodes. She was blessed with 11 grandchildren and several great grandchildren and great great grandchildren and a surviving brother Ralph Flesher of CA. She was very proud of her family and enjoyed spending time with them.
A celebration of life will be held Sunday May 20, 2018 from 11am until the time of service at 3pm at Altmeyer Funeral Home, Lutes & Kirby Vance Chapels, 118 Grant Avenue, Moundsville with Rev. Wesley Howsare officiating.
