Eva Caroline Stead Rea was born October 12, 1928 and was the eldest of two children born to John Henry and Eva Murray Stead in Philadelphia, PA. She and her family attended the Hatboro Gospel Hall where she met her future husband, Samuel James Rae, Jr. After attending Gospel tent meetings in 1939, Eva trusted the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Savior. She and Samuel were married on September 3, 1949 and spent 52 years together while living in New Jersey and Maryland. Over the years Eva was a devoted wife and mother. She was committed to sharing God's Word with her children and freely opened her home to family, friends, missionaries and preachers. After her children were grown, Eva exercised her talents in property management for several apartment buildings in Washington, D.C. and later started her own residential cleaning business.
Eva is preceded in death by her parents, John Henry and Eva Murray Stead, husband Samuel, brother John (Hilda) and son David (Maricruz).
She is survived by a daughter Deborah (Vince) Bray and two grandchildren Caitlin and Collin. She was also a loving Aunt and Cousin to many in the United States and Northern Ireland.
