Terri Eve, age 71, of Helena

Terri McGough Eve was born February 18, 1948 to RoseAnne Schulte McGough and Michael McGough in Omaha, NE. She was raised in Nebraska and spent her happiest childhood days during summers on her grandparents’ farm with her cousins. She met the love of her life, Ed Eve, on a blind date as a freshman at Carroll College in Helena, MT.  They remained together until his death in 2003. She delighted in being part of the boisterous Eve clan. After marriage she focused her efforts on raising three children, growing amazing gardens, and sewing projects. She was a devoted mother. The family spent many happy days with extended family and their lifelong friends the Mageras, the Webers, and the Soliches. After Ed’s death, she met Frank Schneckloth, who became her faithful companion for 13 years. Professionally, she provided administrative support for years at West Mont, Intermountain, and Jackson, Murdo and Grant. Personally, she was committed to lifelong learning, and during her last year she completed the Master Gardener program. Her Catholic faith was deeply important to her. She was preceded in death by her parents, grandparents and husband Ed. She is survived by her children Jackie, Ed (Shannon) and Colin (Rachel) Eve, grandchildren Bailey, Jackson, Annie, Ellie, Emma, and Sam, and cousins Dick, Steve, and Bill Schulte, many in-laws and nieces and nephews, and a small group of dear friends.

    Terri was a such a beautiful lady and a very special Aunt. She always had a smile and a kind word to share. I especially loved her eyes, showing her kindred spirit, inner peace and love. My prayers are with Jackie, Ed, Colin and her grandchildren, and Frank. Her love lives on through them.

    I had the pleasure of working with Terri at Intermountain. Such an amazing person and always had a calming effect on everyone. After that, so enjoyed bumping into her every now and then and chatting. Her family was the light of her life. Peace and memories to all of you.
