Govus (2008); brothers, Jim, Ben, Arnold and Claude Castle; sisters, Edith Cole, Lola Stanbery, Shirley Metzger and Violet Jankowski. She was a longtime member of the Christ United Methodist Church. Eve was born the tenth of sixteen children to Millard and Zora. At age 5, she moved with the family to a farm near Canton, PA. After graduating high school with honors, she became a secretary and worked for Delmott Trucking. She soon moved to Elmira, where she met and married E. Clark Ice, who worked as a music teacher in the public schools. Eve was a secretary in the Land Office in Cheyenne where Brian was born. When Clark earned his Master's Degree, the family returned to New York, first to Cortland and then back to Elmira. Eve loved music, playing and teaching piano, and accompanying Clark as he played the violin. Piano duets were a favorite amusement, especially at Christmas time. Eve's first grandchild was born soon after Clark's death and was a great comfort to her. It tickled her when someone at the tennis court would ask how old her daughter was, and then she would explain proudly that Heather was her granddaughter. She took great joy in all her grand and great-grandchildren. After her marriage to John Govus, she moved to Thomasville, NC, where she made many new friends and was an active member of the garden club. Everywhere she lived, she grew a garden with both vegetables and flowers. Everywhere she went, she admired the gardens and wildlife, particularly the birds. After several years of traveling the East Coast with John, they moved back to Elmira. Although we miss her, we are comforted by the thought that she is still with those she loved.
