Eveline was born August 24, 1934 in Hughesville, Pa. to Burton and Mary Morgan. Eveline and her husband Theodore were active members in Verona where they raised their daughter Susanna on Pease Avenue. Eveline was a woman of faith whose favorite saying was “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” She lived in Verona for 25 years before retiring to Sarasota, Fla.

Eveline had been a music educator and a realtor in New Jersey. She spent her retirement in Florida teaching music to many students privately in her home. She received a bachelor of science degree from Mansfield State College and a certificate from the Royal Conservatory in Toronto. She also received her master’s in business and studied at Memphis State University, Dalcroze School of Music, the Professional School of Business and the Chicago School of Interior Design. She was very proud to be a Who’s Who of Women and Who’s Who in the World recipient.

Eveline served as the organist/choir director at the Verona United Methodist Church and the First Congregational Church of Verona. She was a professional soloist and appeared at the Paper Mill Playhouse, including as Anna in the King and I. In addition to her love for music, Eveline enjoyed golf, tennis, traveling, reading, going to the opera, good food and dairy queen. Many of her cherished memories were spent at the family owned Camp Shawnee, as well as moments with her grandchildren.

Throughout her life, she nourished those around her with her talent and joy of music.

She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Theodore Bland.

She is survived by her loving daughter, Susanna Lokos (Ronald), her grandchildren Brittanee Donley (John) and Nicholas Masi (Courtney) and two great-grandchildren who adored her, Mackenzie Mae and Jack Donley, as well as two sisters Ruth Maginsky and Naomi Huffman. She will be missed.
