Eva Joan Meadows

Eva Joan Meadows, born on May 7, 1936, died peacefully in her sleep on July 2, 2022 at the Arkansas State Veterans Home in North Little Rock, Arkansas.

Eva’s career started at the Arthur Elementary School, before she moved on to work at State Bank of Arthur and then the University of Illinois.

Eva was active in the Arthur community, where she attended the Arthur Christian Church and was a member of Arthur Library Board, and a leader of the Arthur Girl Scouts and the Petite Models 4-H Club.

Eva was preceded in death by her husband Keith Lee Meadows, and her parents Archie Claybourne and Helen Claybourne Emrick. She is survived by her brothers Noel Claybourne and Terry Emrick, sister Judy Pauley, daughters Leta Peterson and Carolyn Eaton, son Kenneth Meadows, her grandchildren Doug Eaton, LaCosta Abbott, Laura Peterson and Brandi Dodson, six great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.

Eva loved her family and friends. She also loved a good book, a piece of pie, and a good cup of coffee.

The family would like to thank her caregivers at the Arkansas State Veterans Home, and request any donations be given to your local library.

A private family ceremony will be held at a later date.
