July 30, 1942 ~ August 15, 2019 (age 77)




During the early morning of Wednesday, August 15th, 2019, Eva May (Tillotson) Chaapel of Canton passed away peacefully at Bradford County Manor. She was 77 years of age. Born July 30th, 1942 in Union Township, Tioga County, Pa., she was the daughter of Oscar and Thelma (Gee) Tillotson. Eva enjoyed crocheting, word search puzzles and playing cards, especially Euchre. She was the kind of person who made friends easily and always enjoyed the company of family and friends. She was known for her good-natured “needling,” and even during her convalescence at the Manor she could bring smiles to faces and evoke laughter from those in her presence. Eva was a devoted mother of eight, and beloved grandmother and great-grandmother of many, who supported her young ones in their endeavors and took pride in their achievements.
