Long-time Hudson resident, Evelyn Kraverath (nee Connor), passed away quietly in her sleep in the early morning of July 30, 2023. Eve was born on June 23, 1935, in Londonderry, Northern Ireland, to William and Evelyn Connor. It was there she attended primary school through University, earning a degree in Home Economics and where she received her teaching credentials. It was also where she met a young US Navy Sailor, while posted at a US Navy communications station in Northern Ireland, to whom she fell in love and would share the rest of her life until his passing this last February. Eve and Bill were married in Londonderry before boarding the USNS General Alexander M. Patch (T-AP-122) bound for New York City, and passing through a hurricane enroute (a story that quickly became family lore). Following the Navy, Eve and Bill settled in Long Island, NY, before job moves took them to Maryland and, ultimately, to Hudson in 1973. Their second Hudson house, a 1920’s-era Sears and Roebucks catalog home near downtown, they restored together to a place worthy of showcasing the many antiques and curios they collected over the years - all infused with her wonderful sense of style. It was in that house, over the course of the next 40 years, that children then grandchildren would gather for countless Thanksgivings, Christmases, birthdays and myriad other celebrations. Eve loved to cook, to craft, to read and to decorate. While working at The Cookery in downtown Hudson, she taught cooking classes and honed her already bountiful culinary skills – a talent that never ceased to make family gatherings memorable, and which inspired a life-long love of food and cooking in her children. Eve is survived by her children: Judy Detzel, Bill Kraverath and Scott Kraverath as well as 7 Grandchildren and 6 Great Grandchildren. It is in them, and in their memories of Eve and her life story, where her legacy lives on.
