CAMDEN – Eva Morong Pease, 93, died Feb. 28, 2013. A lifelong resident of Camden, she was born Oct. 28, 1919, to Sam F. and Celia M. Cernosia.
Eva was affectionately known as “Nanny” and dedicated her life to her family. She took great pride in her children and grandchildren’s accomplishments, and enjoyed sharing her box full of photos and newspaper clippings about them. A great deal of her legacy continues to be illustrated in her children and grandchildren through knitting, sewing and cooking. She was an avid Red Sox fan. As the official birthday cake baker and peanut butter ball maker, she made the holidays very special. Eva was always ready for a game of cards with her grandchildren. She made sure that all of her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren had one of her beautiful handmade quilts. Her last days were spent at Windward Gardens. The family extends their heartfelt appreciation not only for the extraordinary care she received, but the love and affection of the wonderful nurses of the Spring Garden Unit. We will be forever grateful for their care.
Eva is survived by her three children, Louise Morong Wentworth, Frank G. Morong and wife, Janice, and Edwin W. Morong and wife, Glenna, all of Camden; six grandchildren, Bruce W. Wentworth, Gerry Ross, Terry Romain, Laurie Doran, Chris Morong and William G. Morong; 13 great-grandchildren and eight great-great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind a lifelong friend and brother-in-law, Everett Morong and son, Gary.
A graveside service will be held at Mountain View Cemetery, Camden, in the spring and will be announced. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Camden First Aid Association, P.O. Box 368, Camden, ME 04843; or PAWS, people helping animals, P.O. Box 707, Rockport, ME 04856. Arrangements are with Long Funeral Home, 9 Mountain St., Camden.
