Eva Marguerite Mary Dolores Scandrett (née Carpentier) was born in 1930 in St. Boniface, Manitoba as the youngest of a family of five to Eva and George (Gabriel) Carpentier. Siblings born in Canada were George, Louise, Maurice, and Achilles (Archie), all of whom she outlived.
She celebrated 63 years of marriage to Rod, before he died in 2012 at the age of 94.

She is survived by her two sons Miles Scandrett and Clyde (Gail) Scandrett, as well as her three grandchildren Caellin (Jacob) Douglas, Grace (Kevin) Norris, and Kieran Scandrett. She was also blessed with four great grandchildren Keller, Gannon, Lannah, and Madden Douglas.

Before marrying the love of her life at nineteen she was a grade school teacher in Marchand, Manitoba. After marrying Rod, they lived for a short time in Eriksdale, Manitoba and Warroad Minnesota, but soon after the birth of their second son, moved to California in 1956. Naturalized as a United States citizen in 1961, she spent many years taking care of her two boys in Salinas, supporting all their efforts in school as a prominent member of the local PTA and their extracurricular activities. Her early career in Salinas included jobs at Montgomery Wards and Memorial Hospital in the mid-1960's.

Following that, she was an accountant for Mr. Bigham's various businesses. She continued to work as an accountant for Hayashi & Wayland in the late 1970's and early eighties, until her final role as head financial advisor at the Santa Catalina Catholic preparatory school in Monterey.

In retirement, she enjoyed travel with her husband, living for a short time in Palm Desert, and eventually returning to the Salinas area, settling in Spreckels. In addition to enjoying time spent with her immediate family in California, she kept in close and continuous contact with relatives in Canada where she was known as Auntie Eva. Among her hobbies were contract bridge (at which she played at the "masters" level) and cooking (many of her friends and family have benefitted from, and enjoyed her fabulous recipes and her wonderful knack for hosting). She is loved by many and missed by all, but she often said that she will be happy when she is reunited with her loving husband, whom she missed for several years.
