It is with a heavy heart that we share with our supporters the passing of Eve Prang Plews, former host of No Nonsense Nutrition, and longtime supporter of community radio. Eve was a dynamo and font of wisdom when it came to nutrition and healing. Even though she was no longer hosting a show at WSLR, she was still a member of the WSLR family. It is because of Eve that ‘health’ appears in our mission statement. She offered guidance to many of us and we will miss her. When we get details on the memorial service, we will be sharing them on the airwaves.
Eve opened her nutrition clinic, Full Spectrum Health, in Sarasota 30 years ago to educate, empower and assist clients as part of their health care team. Faced with personal health challenges at an early age, and a prognosis that would require ongoing drug therapies and surgeries, this “Million Dollar Baby” put on her fighting gloves and learned everything she could about her condition from western medicine and other healing modalities and traditions worldwide.
Once her own condition was significantly improved, she continued seeking answers – one question at a time – for others. What went wrong? What can be done about it? Can it be prevented in others?
The fiery determination to dedicate the time and resources necessary to learn how to alleviate her own suffering and amend her own future continued to fuel her extensive commitment to stay on the forefront of cutting edge medical science and clinical research in order to alleviate suffering and improve the condition of her clients.
With heavy hearts we need to tell you that Eve died on Saturday, September first with her beloved husband at her side and her dearest friends present.
We ask you to understand why you did not know.
Eve chose to not talk about her condition because she had an insatiable, reverent appetite for life and refused to give any precious days or moments she had left to the topic of dying.
She did this valiantly – spending less than one month infirm and less than one week in the disability zone.
Eve taught us to protect and preserve our health and quality of life that we may live fully and vibrantly until the day we die. That’s what she taught. That’s how she lived. What an amazing example to us all.
Although the tremendous loss to all of us will be on going, we hope you will join us in celebrating Eve’s amazing life and service to all of us and to the community.
Eve taught us how to preserve and protect our health and quality of life. She quoted her grandmother that “the goal is to live, live, live, then croak;” Not spend months and years in the disability zone.
Once again, she has demonstrated the strength and courage to live by her convictions and show us how it is done! She accomplished the ultimate goal of health – to maintain a high-quality full life until the very day that life is over. Eve spent less than 24 hours in the disability zone.
With gratitude, we celebrate Eve’s life, spirit and brilliance – she will be greatly missed.
We are open regular hours and Eve’s office is prepared for those of you who would like a private moment to say goodbye. Testimonies and stories will be compiled and read at her memorial service which will be open to the public. That date is not yet set.
