Argentinians yearn for Evita 70 years after her death | Life/Entertainment

BUENOS AIRES (AP) — Maria Eva Noble says she’s living up to her namesake’s legacy by working in a cafeteria in a working-class Buenos Aires neighborhood.

It is named after Argentina’s former first lady Maria Eva Duarte de Perón, better known as Eva Perón or Evita, who died 70 years ago on Tuesday. The soup kitchen, where Noble volunteers in the Flores area, provides daily meals to about 200 people and is run by an organization that also bears the late leader’s name.
