  1. So very sorry for your loss! Eunice had a laugh that was contagious! I will always remember going to her house to put up sweet corn. She loved to garden!

  2. worked with Eunice for 20 years at Spartons, there were so many days that she made my day better just by talking to her! Between Eunice , Bill and myself there were a lot of pranks that were done to each other and other people, we will miss her a great deal but she will always be with me in my heart.

  3. She was a sweet lady worked with her at Spartan she was a good coworker.And always good to talk to her to listen to her stories she loved her family. She always took pride in her work.My prayers goes out to the family and I pray for strength for them for the days to comes.
