Aunt Eunice was very special to all of us. When we were little we went to stay with Aunt Eunice one summer and she took us crab fishing, and then we brought the crabs back to her house and she cooked them for all of us. We went to you beach cottage for several days and had lots of fun down by the ocean.
Aunt Eunce and Aunt Ruth taught all of girls how to sew that year, it’s something that I will never forget.
She called me her traveling buddy everytime she would call on the phone. I always loved to hear her voice because she would had this cute little giggle when she talked. Aunt Eunice was a very kind, lovable, and sweet person thaat will always hold a special place in our hearts.
Our condolences to the family. Aunt Eunice will be always be remembered as a strong, kind woman. May she rest in peace.
