Eva Marie Degen

Date of Death: February 26, 2021

Date of Birth: September 1, 1971


LEWISTON – Eva Marie Degen, 49, of Lewiston passed away February 26th, 2021 with her family by her side. Eva was born on September 1st, 1971, the daughter of Leroy and Elaine Cohoon.

Eva married the love of her life, Kevin Degen, on July 20th, 1991. Together they had two children, Jessica, and Crystal, who Eva cherished and nurtured. She worked hard to support her family and was employed at CMMC for 18 years as a patient access specialist, as well as a cpr instructor.

She will be remembered as someone who put her family first, others after, and herself last. She could often be found at Walmart, shopping her heart out, and it was not unusual that Eva would run into one familiar face after another. Eva was a woman of God, church was an important part of her life, and she was an active member, taking time to teach Sunday school.

Eva was predeceased by two brothers, Jeremy Cohoon and Jimmy Cohoon; an aunt, Jeanette Caouette; a niece, Michelle Taylor; and her two brothers-in-law, Henry, and Bruce Degen.

She leaves behind her husband Kevin of 30 years; two daughters, Jessica, and Crystal; her mother and father, Elaine, and Leroy Cohoon; a brother and his girlfriend, Richard (Ricky) Downs and Jillian Aldridge; her aunt and uncle, Lois, and Tom Taylor; nephews, Ryan and Jackson Downs, Steven and John Taylor, and Richard Johnson; nieces, Maya Downs, Tammy Blanchette, Brittani Degen, and Monique Johnson. Eva also leaves behind 3 brothers-in-law, Chris, Jim, and Scott Degen; and 3 sisters-in-law, Billie Jean, Christina Degen, and Jalaine Wilbur.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date during the Spring.
