Mrs. Eunice always enjoyed preparing for the dinners at the Welcome Hill Church of Christ, where she was a member for nearly 75 years. She worked for many years at Strickland Mills in Remerton, and Crackin' Good Bakers. She also was trained as a hair dresser and loved pretty clothes. Mrs. Eunice always wanted to "look pretty" so weekly hair appointments were not to be missed!
