Eve was born in Clayton County, on March 9, 1927, to Samuel and Bernice Dennler.
She attended Cheery Valley School and went on to Elgin High School. At the age of sixteen she left Elgin and enrolled in the Paris Academy of Beauty in Cedar Rapids. She completed the course for hairdressers and returned to Elgin and opened "Eva Mae's Beauty Shop" when she was eighteen.
She operated the beauty shop for several years and then she married Jack Gehring on June 4, 1950. They made their home in West Elgin and during this time two children were born.
In 1959 they moved to Indianapolis, Indiana, where Jack started his career with the FAA. During the next few years the family moved to several locations in the Midwest, ending up in Norwalk. They lived in Norwalk for 36 years before moving to Bangor, Maine, in 2013.
