Eva Davenport, age 96, passed away at her Charlotte, TN residence on Wednesday, December 6, 2023, surrounded by her family. Born in Austin, TX to Esther and Bonfilio Santoyo, she lived most of her life in Chicago, IL working as a homemaker and later as an assembly line supervisor.  Eva enjoyed and was quite proficient in sewing and needlework, making many clothes for her family, crocheting and decorative needlework. Retiring to Charlotte, TN with her husband, Alvin, she easily transitioned from city life to country calm, and together they enticed several relatives to settle here as well.  In later years Eva enjoyed animal and birdwatching on her property as well as westerns on TV and following the Chicago Cubs.
