    What is her nationality? She has a Dutch surname (Van Beers I believe) but from the pictures I've seen she is definitely of Asian
    lineage. Anyone know? Also, is she still alive?

    Jan Van Halen met Eugenia van Beers in Indonesia, so one could assume she's of that descent. I'm not sure if she's still living or not. I believe she had breast cancer a number of years ago; she was born in 1914 so she's certainly had a long life.

    I seem to recall readin' that she was Indonesian as well. I also recall a Dweezil Zappa Guitar magazine interview with Ed, where he made reference to Ed's Dutch-Malaysian features. I've seen a few pics of her and there's no doubt she is Asian. I wasn't surprised to learn this 'cause in certain pictures of Ed and Al, I could see some features other than caucasian.

    Jan Van Halen traveled to Indonesia after WWII. That's where he met Eugenia.
