Eva E. Ehrhardt, 91, Harford dairy farmer

December 27, 2003

Eva E. Ehrhardt, who co-owned a dairy farm and helped manage it, died Dec. 20 of congestive heart failure at her Baldwin home. She was 91.

Born Eva James in Baltimore and raised in the Belair Road section of Northeast Baltimore, she attended city public schools.

She and her husband of 62 years, Clarence E. Ehrhardt, who died in 1998, owned a dairy farm in the Upper Crossroads section of Harford County.

Family members said she was an active participant in the farm and seasonally canned 150 dozen ears of corn. She also made and delivered lunches to those working in her fields.

Until about 15 years ago, Mrs. Ehrhardt operated a produce stand in front of her home on Baldwin Mill Road. She often talked with her customers and would go into the cornfield to pick a few more ears if her supply ran out.

Services were held Wednesday at the Fallston United Methodist Church, where she was a member.

Survivors include a son, James E. Ehrhardt of Baldwin; a daughter, Shirley E. Harnbarger of Baldwin; eight grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren.
