Some of the memories I have of Eula are the time I first met her in 1984 at the North Wayne Ambulance Service EMT classes that she and her mother had also signed up for. We had a lot of fun, I was one of the only people who called her Eula, everyone else always called her Jeanie. She will be remembered for her love of animals and wildlife and the love she had for her pets. She loved her family and church family and spending time volunteering at her church and donating her crocheted items to help others. I will miss seeing her at all the area festivals and will always remember her for her bright smile. She will be greatly missed.

I have known Eula, who I always called Jeanie, for many years. She always had a smile and took the time to talk. She was a nice lady. My condolences to her family.

Ms Jeanie was a fixture at Bloom Baptist. Rarely missing a service. Always willing to help in any way she could. She loved the kids there, and they loved her. She is missed
