Eva H. Sacharuk died, peacefully, at her home in Peterborough, New Hampshire on June 1, 2021. Before moving to Peterborough in 2019, she was a long-time resident of Wenham, Massachusetts where she raised her family with her husband Serge since 1960. Eva is survived by her loving husband of 70 years, Serge, her children and their spouses: Peter and Diana Sacharuk of Portland, ME., Nina and Blake Anderson of Dublin, NH. , and Greg and Lisa Sacharuk of Hendersonville, TN.; and grandchildren: Alexandra, Frazer, Nicholas, Katherine, Anastasia, and Christopher.
Eva was a teacher of Physics and Chemistry at the Pingree School in South Hamilton, MA for four decades. She reluctantly retired when she was 79 years young. She adored teaching, tennis, gardening, bridge, politics, reading, asparagus, and her family.
Eva was born in Buchach, Ukraine in 1931. During World War II, she left Ukraine with her family, first arriving in Vienna, Austria and then living in a United Nations displaced persons camp in Salzburg, Austria. While there, she earned her high school diploma and met her husband, Serge. After her family emigrated to the United States in 1949, she attended the University of Colorado at Boulder and graduated cum laude with a degree in Chemistry. She later earned a master’s degree in Education from Salem State University.
After an early period as a research chemist, she found her passion in teaching in the 1970s and loved every day of her teaching career at Pingree School. She adored her students and her colleagues.
A memorial service will be held at St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Church in Salem, Massachusetts, at 124 Bridge Street https://www.saintjohnsukr.com/ on June 18th at 10:30am followed by a reception.
