Mrs. Tompkins was born in Heard County, Georgia on July 21, 1923, the daughter of the late Erastus Olin Mathews and Verna Lynette Glover Mathews. She was a 1940 graduate of Heard County High School where she was a member of the Championship Girl's Basketball Team. In her younger years she was the clerk at Franklin Pharmacy. It was a time when the drug store was the main location for young people to
gather for an afternoon snack or to buy a gift. It was always a treat to have "Miss Eva" help with a fragrance or make up. Later she was a great asset to the people of Heard County where she served as the secretary for the Heard County Probate Judge. She was a faithful member of the Franklin United Methodist Church. She was a supportive wife who assisted her husband, the late Kyle Tompkins from
behind the scene with his very successful Boy Scout program which he conducted for many years. Even though most would say Miss Eva was a no nonsense, plain spoken person, she had a great soft spot for her two lovely daughters, Felecia and Margo. They were the joy of her life! She will be missed by all who knew her.

She is survived by her daughters, Felicia Lanham (Eddie) of Brooks, Ga., and Margo Prince of Roopville, GA.; one sister, Narvell Acree of Memphis, TN.; one brother, Glover Mathews of LaGrange, GA.; grandchildren, Venessa Prince White of Carrollton, GA., Scott Prince, and Kelly Prince Parker both of Peachtree City, GA.; and four great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Kyle Tompkins, parents, Verna and Olin Mathews, and brother, Merritt Mathews.
