Eva Irene Main was born October 11, 1924 in Dupree, South Dakota.  She was the daughter of Claude and Ella (Lammert) Main.  Eva grew up on the family farm north of Dupree.  She attended 8 years of elementary school at the Main School and in May of 1942 she graduated from the Dupree High School.  The following summer she attended the Black Hills Teachers College in Spearfish.  After several years of teaching, Eva returned  to college and graduated Cum Laude in May of 1971 with a B.S. Degree in Education.  She taught school in Ziebach County, the Redelm School, and Dupree Elementary School.  On January 16, 1945, Eva was united in marriage to Wallace Brams at the Congregational Church in Dupree.  To this union was born 3 daughters: Patricia, Kathy, and Carlene.  Following their marriage they lived in Dupree until 1948 when the moved to the Brams Family Ranch.  The ranch was located on Pretty Creek, 12 miles north of Dupree, and they farmed and ranched there for many years.  In 1997 they retired and moved into Belle Fourche, where they enjoyed living by their lifelong friends, Gwyn and Jessie Jewett.  Wallace died in 2011 and for the past two years, Eva has been a resident at the Crook County Long Term Care Center in Sundance, WY. 

Eva was a fun-loving woman who enjoyed music and dancing.  She was loving, selfless and a woman of faith.  She enjoyed traveling, playing card games, and she loved her children and grandchildren very much.  She was patriotic and a faithful Republican.  One of Eva’s blessings was the joy of her grandchildren, great grandchildren, her church, community, and the many students she taught over the years.
