In 1873 she married Saunders Sloman, born in Paddington in 1848, and the youngest son of 7 children.  His father Joseph  was a general dealer in weaving apparel. Perhaps it was from him that Saunders learnt his business as a colour manufacturer.

At the 1891 Birmingham Dog Show he 'was among the successful exhibitors with his grand St Bernard dog Ecceleston Oscar' and first prize at the Bath dog show in 1894 with his St Bernard King Bladud. 

Eveline's mother died in 1893 and her father in 1895. Eveline  died in Bath in 1897 of uterine cancer at the young age of 46 .

After Eveline's death, Saunders remarried Sarah Green. They moved to Bristol and it is possible that they then went to South Africa and set up a business there.
