Eva Nell York-Slover was born on April 20, 1937, in Tahlequah, the daughter of Estel and Anna Bell (Price) York. She grew up with five brothers and two sisters and attended school at Bagley High School in Tahlequah. Eva was hard working and resourceful. She married Clifford Fountain and together they raised one son, Paul, and two daughters, Annette and Dathina. She worked as a cook at the Keys Public Schools and loved being around the young people. She was outgoing and friendly. She loved to talk to people, but was able to voice her opinion on any subject when asked. She liked to read a good book or spend time outdoors in her flower garden. Traveling was one of her favorite hobbies and so was an afternoon of serious shopping. “Old Granny,” as she was affectionately called, was very proud of her grandchildren. She loved to have them come by and share a meal of her chicken with dressing and a piece of her coconut cream pie. She became ill and she went to her eternal home on Friday, Aug., 7, 2015 in Tahlequah. Eva was 78 years old. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends. Eva is preceded in death by her parents; her husbands, Jack Slover and Clifford Fountain; her son, Paul Fountain; three brothers, Bill Price, Bobby York and Jimmy York; one sister, Sue Trammel; and her grandson, Ricky Lee. Those left to cherish her memory include her daughters, Annette Hakes and husband Danny of Hulbert, and Dathina Triplett and husband Kevin of Briggs. She leaves two brothers, Cecil Swepston and wife Sharon of Fort Gibson, and Charles York and wife Janice of Park Hill. There is one surviving sister, Debbie Gardesser of Jay; and four grandchildren, Bobbie Carey and husband Jimmy of Hulbert, Kim Scott of Keys, Christopher Triplett and wife Elizabeth of Briggs, and Dan Hakes and wife Bethany of Hulbert; 14 great-grandchildren; as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of friends and loved ones.
