Eve A. Hannibal Hapis, age 88, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on January 10, 2021. She was the daughter of Werner and Oli Herde and passed away peacefully at the Connecticut Hospice in Branford, CT. She was born in Bridgeport, and lived in Trumbull.
Eve graduated from Stratford High School and later worked at Park City Hospital as an Administration Assistant to the VP of Public Relations and Development.
She was a member of Calvary Evangelical Free Church in Trumbull and served in many capacities. She enjoyed baking her goodies each week for the youth Sunday school class for more than ten years, driving seniors to their medical appointments, organizing funerals, visiting nursing homes, and directing a ministry writing cards to those who were ill or had experienced a loss.
Eve loved gardening, baking, cooking, shopping, playing games, especially pinochle, and rooting for the Yankees and the UConn Huskies basketball teams. She is remembered for her sacrificial love for her family, her tireless service, and generous giving to meet needs. That is her legacy. Fortunately, her family got to spend time visiting with her these past weeks to express their love and admiration for her.
Eve is survived by four loving children – Donald Hannibal (Robin) of Monroe, Kathie Taylor (Scott) of Trumbull, Richard Hannibal (Lisa) of McLean, VA and Thomas Hannibal (Suzy) of Trumbull. She is also survived by ten grandchildren – David and Rachel Hannibal, Jeremy, Nate and Jenelle Taylor, Mark and Kara Hannibal, Dan, Stephanie and Josh Hannibal and four great-grandchildren - James Hannibal and Blake, Chad, and Paige Taylor.
A wake will be held in the sanctuary of Calvary Church, 498 White Plains Road, Trumbull on Saturday, January 16th from 8:30 – 9:30 am (safe distancing and masking).
