Eva E. (Springer) Emanuel

April 8, 1931 — November 30, 2022


Eva Elsa Emanuel, 91, of Youngstown, entered into eternal rest on Wednesday, November 30, 2022, at Omni Manor. Eva was born April 8, 1931, in Berlin, Germany, a daughter to the late Karl and Ellen (Giseman) Springer. Growing up in Germany and surviving WWII, she was very proud of her roots.

Eva met the love of her life, Alfred, while he was stationed in Germany.  They married in Germany on November 29, 1952, and came to the United States in 1953 where they made their home in Youngstown, Ohio. Eva eventually worked at Youngstown State University in food service, and later would retire from CVS in Hubbard as the store manager.

Full of energy and a bold spirit, you always knew when Eva walked into a room. Through the years she enjoyed sewing, knitting, crocheting, playing cards, traveling with her husband, and making friends wherever she went.  Eva was an outstanding cook, baker, and always looked forward to hosting family dinners and toasting “Prost!” She was a stranger to no one and found great purpose sharing in the successes and joys of her family.

Eva leaves to cherish her memory her children, Henry Emanuel of Florida; Phyllis (Russell) Willrich of McDonald; Alfred (Rose) Emanuel of McDonald; a half brother, Peter, of Germany; 8 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren; and many friends, including her childhood best friends from Berlin, Gisela and Ingrid.

One day following what would’ve been their 70th wedding anniversary, Eva was finally reunited with her husband, Alfred Joseph Emanuel, who passed away on May 29, 2011. She is also preceded in death by her daughter-in-law, Diana Emanuel.

“Prost” to the beautiful life you lived, Eva.
