Eunice love for the Lord, family and friends was exemplified by the way she lived her life. She cherished her family and was happiest when they could all get together. She loved her children dearly and her love grew even more as she became a grandmother, great grandmother and great-great grandmother. She was a longtime active member of the Calvary Baptist Church where she thoroughly enjoyed church socials and being with her church family. She was, also, an active member of WMU, Glorious Group and Home Extension Club.
