Eva Jane Day

Eva Jane (Bruck) Day

Eva Jane Day, age 72, suddenly passed away on Thursday, November 8, 2018, after a brief onset of Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy (broken heart syndrome).
Although she was born in West Palm Beach, Florida on September 27, 1946, to Harriet and Roy L. Bruck, her childhood and adulthood were well lived in Akron, Ohio.
After studying drafting at Hower Vocational School, Eva graduated from Central High School in 1964. Upon graduation, she was hired as a draftsman at Winebrenner & Associates. Whereas, that experience served as the catalyst for her 23 year career with the City of Akron Public Utilities Bureau. Eva retired as an engineer tech II and will forever be remembered by her co-workers for her legendary office humor.
Eva's professional success equally matched her personal success.
On December 16, 1972, she married the love of her life, John Carl Day.
Together, they established a loving home in the North Hill district of Akron and devoted their lives to raising their two beautiful daughters, Heather and Heidi.
Eva and John were also blessed with two beloved grandchildren, Lola and Luca.
Eva was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend who loved deeply and unconditionally. She drenched all who crossed her path in love.
Eva is preceded in death by her eldest daughter, Heather Day; her mother, Harriet (Hess) Huffman; and her dear friend, Judy (Leidal) Dixon.
She is survived by her loving husband, John Carl Day; her daughter, Heidi Day Hall; her grandchildren, Lola and Luca Hall; her sisters, Janice (Andy) Raynor and Cheryl (Bill) Fleischer; her dear friends, Valerie (Lewis) Mansfield, Susie (Leidal) King and Shawn Needham; and countless other adoring nieces, nephews and friends of all relation.
Visitation will be Wednesday from 5 to 8 p.m. at Hennessy-Bagnoli-Moore Funeral Home, 936 N. Main Street, Akron, Ohio 44310. Funeral services will be held on Thursday, at 11 a.m., at Trinity United Church of Christ, 915 N. Main Street in Akron.

Dear family and friends of Eva Jane Day, I am deeply sorry for your loss. I too have lost many loved ones in death. One thing that has helped me to cope many times is a promise made by Jesus Christ. He talked about a resurrection of the dead in a Paradise Earth where all of us will see our loved ones again! Jesus promises in John 5:28, 29: "All those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." Another comforting Scripture, one of my personal favorites, is Revelation 21:4. It speaks of world conditions under God's Kingdom rule. It says: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." A most reassuring promise indeed! I hope these verses comfort you like they have comforted me. My heart and prayers go out to you. Below is a link to a very encouraging Bible-based brochure entitled, When Someone You Love Dies. Please use your personal Bible with this brochure as you read it in the months ahead. https://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/when-someone-dies/ Your Neighbor, Izzy
