INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Eve Poulson Purvis, a co-founder of the National Organization for Woman and a former member of the Woman's Commission on Civil Rights, has died at the age of 69.

Mrs. Purvis died Sunday in Community Hospital.

Mrs. Purvis moved to Indianapolis from her native Marion in 1958 and was a staff worker and lobbyist for the AFL-CIO. President John F. Kennedy named her to the women's civil rights commission.

Junior Bridge, spokeswoman for NOW in Washington, said Purvis was among 28 women who founded the women's rights organization in 1966. Other founders included Betty Friedan, author of ''The Feminine Mystique,'' and Katheryn Clarenbach.

In addition to co-founding NOW, Mrs. Purvis also co-founded the Consumer Federation of America and the Consumers Association of Indiana.

She was a member of the national AFL-CIO Speakers Bureau.

Survivors include a son, two daughters, two brothers and two sisters.
