Mooers couple reflect on 71 years


“I have a swivel chair so I can crank open a window and just shoot my gun,” she said with a smile. “Charles sits in an easy chair near me, and we have good days. It’s heated, too.”

Just being in the same room with Charles and Eva you know they are sharing “eyes across the table.” He smiles when asked how the years have been. She’s constantly watching to make sure he’s doing all right.

Both have health challenges, but it has only brought them closer. Disagreements have been few and handled with care.

“There have been rough times, but we both accepted Christ into our lives early in our marriage,” she said. “When we have a problem, I just say to Charles ‘Perhaps you better go talk to God about that.’ 

“It has always worked.”
