There are no words to express our sorrow for your loss.
My brothers and I were very close to Eula, Owen, and family when we were growing up in Reith.
One fond memory of Eula is when she burst out of the outdoor toilet because she had set down next to a bull snake that thought the outhouse was a nice place to rest.

A dear friend has passed away
And in our hearts she will forever stay.
Eula & Grace Maness were friends for life
through joy, stress and strife.
Now in Heaven they once again will meet
and their friendship they will keep.
Eula will be missed by many friends here in town
and all around.
To the family we would like to say
we know you will miss her every day.
The church nursery for many years
Was where you found Eula with the little ones - cheers & tears.
Bible study to Eula was great
and each week she could wait.
There never was a better cook
and Eula loved to read many a book.
She loved to feed and watch the squirrels and birds
especially the hummingbirds.
She loved to play Mexican train
and for her playing buddies it won’t be the same.
A wonderful neighbor and friend
forever until life did end.
So as we bid Eula goodbye
Its hard for us not to cry.
May she rest in peace, her life here on earth is done
and her many battles have been won.
God took one of the best
she deserves a Heavenly rest.

Eula was one of the sweetest ladies we ever met. I had the opportunity to serve with
Eula in the nursery at the Free Methodist Church when our twins were young. She
always had a twinkle in her eye and so much joy. It was a pleasure to know her.

Eula was a very gentle and genuine Christian lady. I am so pleased to have been able to visit with Eula and Janet thus summer when attending
The Bagwells Anniversary Party at Willowbrook Terrace. I knew Eula and Owen from years ago when Bernard & I and the kids attended Pendleton Free Methodist Church with them. Also Janet worked with my husband, Bernard at City Hall. Your family has been a blessing in our lives. I regret I will not be able to attend the services. Eula will be greatly missed.

I'm sure you will miss her very much but remember you will see her again in Heaven. God Bless You, Andrea
