Eva Jo was born in Calhoun, Ok on March 5, 1932, during the Depression. She is an only child. The family moved to find work to Oregon, California, Arizona and finally to western Kansas. Jo graduated from Hill City High School. Eva Jo later married the love of her life, Bill Luck, also of Hill City. KS. The oil field took the family to Great Bend, Hill City, El Dorado, Columbus, OH., Edmond, OK. and Lyons, KS. They raised one daughter, Jeanne Riedel Shoemaker (husband Rex, deceased), Steve, deceased (wife Joette), Canyon, TX., Ric (wife Debbie), of Houston, Jim (wife Rhonda) of Topeka. Eva Jo was active in Epsilon Sigma Alpha, was an excellent bridge player and bowler. While in El Dorado she was a bookkeeper for Graves Drug Stores, a homemaker, den mother, and member of Trinity Episcopal Church. Eva Jo saw to it that all her children had the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, insisted they learn to swim, and nurtured a love of reading. She strongly encouraged her children and later her grandchildren to obtain a college education. All earned at least one college degree. Besides her children, her biggest source of pride and joy were her four grandchildren: Ricelle Luck (Richard) of Geelong, Australia, Garrett Luck of Houston, TX, and Whitney Luck of St. Petersburg, FL., Taylor Jo Luck (Jim) of Topeka, KS.
