Eula joyfully served school children lunch for over 20 years at Bratt Elementary School.

She retired as the beloved cafeteria manager.

Eula loved her co workers, and each child that came through the lunch line.

She even had the joy of serving lunch to her very own grandchildren.

Eula shared her love of Jesus to everyone she met.

She was a faithful member of New Life Fellowship in Walnut Hill.

Eula was also a glorious talent in the gospel singing group, Restoration, which included vocalists, Kevanah and Betty Hare, Carolyn Thortis and Glen Thrower.

One of Eula’s favorite scriptures that she hung on a wall in her house was Joshua 24:15, “But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

The way she lived her life should be an example for all of us. She made sure that as a mother, all five of her children were raised in church, and that the Word of God was instilled in them.

Eula loved her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

She lived life knowing that when her time on this earth was over, she would be with her Lord and savior, Jesus Christ.

We are to celebrate this day with overflowing joy in our hearts knowing that Eula is also celebrating with her Lord in Heaven. She will truly be missed.
