Eve attended Hibbing High School. She married Thomas J. Rutherford in April of 1980. Eve loved spending time with friends and family most of all. Her grandchildren held the biggest part of her heart. She worked at Golden Crest Nursing Home for over 20 years, where she made many lifetime friends. Eve enjoyed traveling and trips to the casino with friends and family. Eve couldn’t wait for it to warm up in the spring so she could have a barbeque.  She also loved being at the lake and going out in the boat, as long as it wasn’t too choppy and the sun was shining. Christmas was her favorite holiday. She loved having her grandkids over to decorate, cut out cookies and sneak them early Christmas presents, because she just couldn’t wait. Eve was very special to many people and will be deeply missed. Eve is survived by her four children, sons, Chad (Jessie) Rutherford, Joe (Beckie) Rutherford, Mike (Beth Kangas) Rutherford, and daughter Carly (Derek) Bautch, grandchildren, Ilexa Rutherford, Cody Rutherford, Tyler Rutherford, Tommy Rutherford, Ben Kangas, Derek Bautch Jr., Jack Bautch, Max Bautch and Rudy Bautch, brothers, Roger (Diane) Betters, Dan (Shirley) Betters, Kevin Betters and sister-in-law, Marcia Betters.
