Eva R. (Rowe) Couch, age 96, of Scottsbluff, passed away on November 29, 2019, at the Northfield Residency Care Center in Scottsbluff. A Celebration of Life will be held on Thursday afternoon, December 5, from 2-4:00 P.M. at the Residency dining room at 2100 Circle Drive, in Scottsbluff. According to the family’s wishes, memorials may be made to the Nebraska Children’s Home, the First Presbyterian Church in Scottsbluff, and the Riverside Discovery (Zoo).

Eva was born in Sheridan, Missouri on May 3, 1923, to Ethel (Dunkle) and Stanford Rowe. The family then moved to Henry, Nebraska where she graduated from Henry High School. It was there that she met her future husband, Carroll Couch, and they were later married in Baltimore, Maryland where she worked in a machine gun factory while Carroll was overseas. After the war, they moved back to Henry and owned and operated the Henry Confectionary Store for 13 years, during which they had three daughters, Betty, Beth and Janice. They moved to Lyman in 1959, where Carroll was president of Farmers State Bank.

She loved sports, traveling, sewing, dolls, collecting miniatures and following all activities of their daughters. They moved to Northfield Villa in 2000 where she lived out her remaining years.

Eva was preceded in death by her parents, Ethel and Stanford Rowe; brothers, Marvin, Frank, and Dean; and sisters, Doris and Mary Lou.

Left to cherish Eva’s memory are her brother, Robert Rowe; three daughters, Betty (Kermit) Wolff, Beth (Harlan) Trupp, and Janice (Dennis) Schmitz; six grandchildren; and twelve grandchildren.

I got to know Eva when she and my mom were neighbors at the Vista. She was a good friend to my mom, Dorothy Jenkins, and a lovely lady to visit with. Eternal rest grant to her O Lord.
May wonderful memories comfort her family at this time.
Sincerely, Karen Maris

I only today (12/22/19) learned that my "Auntie Eva" had passed away. She was a special lady...I have childhood memories of my brother Lynn and I sitting on the floor in the corner of their store reading comic books. It was allowed as long as we didn't wrinkle the pages! She had that distinctive Rowe girls' laugh and her sense of humor endured. May she rest in peace.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Couch family. Your Mother was a very special person. So fortunate to have “the Couch girl’s” with us in FL. Few weeks ago. Rest In Peace sweet Eva.

Betty, Beth, Janice and families, I am saddened to hear about your mother’s passing, but gladdened that she had a rich, full life. I remember so well that as children she always summoned you home with a loud whistle. I can still hear it! So many memories of a great lady. I pray for your peace and comfort as you remember and miss a wonderful mother and grandmother.
