Eva Dalton Woodson

January 7, 1921 — November 29, 2023


Eva Dalton Woodson, 102, of Lynchburg, Virginia, went home to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on November 29, 2023.  She was a devoted wife to her late husband, Alvin B. (A.B.) Woodson for 61 years. 

Eva, born on January 7, 1921, in Pittsylvania County, Virginia, was the daughter of Ollie D. and Lula J. Dalton then stepdaughter of Rosa T. Dalton.  She attended school in Gretna, Virginia, and met A.B. while living on neighboring farms. 

Eva was a stay-at-home mother for many years while also providing daycare for children whom she loved like her own.  She later entered the workplace as a seamstress with JCPenney from where she retired after 25 years of service.  Eva had been a lifelong member of Park View United Methodist Church. 

Eva loved family time, hosting gatherings, sewing and decorating.  Many were blessed to be recipients of her talents and creativity.  

Eva is predeceased by her husband, A.B., and infant son, Stephen; sister, Alice Gatewood; and brothers, Roy, Clifton, M.T. and Lester Dalton. 

Eva is survived by her children, Michael  B. Woodson (Debbie), Sharon W. May (David) and Angela W. Druding (John); grandchildren, Katherine E. Ayers (Jason) and Mark J. Druding; and sister, Ruth Jerlene Dalton. 

The family appreciates her many caregivers over the years including the Summit community and Centra Hospice. 

A private burial will take place at Fort Hill Memorial Park. Anyone wishing to make a contribution in her memory, should please consider Samaritan’s Purse.
