Eula was a long time member of Grace Baptist Church and she loved the Lord and her family above all else. She was a great cook and she loved to host big family gatherings where she was especially known for her delicious, handmade tamales. Eula was a talented ceramist and she spent many years creating beautiful ceramic pieces. Her family will forever treasure the pieces she made for them. She loved to spend time with her family, brag on her kids, grandkids, and great grandkids, and play cards and beanbag baseball with her friends. She was loved by many and she will be greatly missed.

The family would like to thank the staff at Green House cottages of Belle Meade in Paragould and Dierksen Hospice for their care and compassion in her final days.
