Eula attended Bates Middle School and Lincoln High School in Sumter. She moved to New York City in the late 70’s with her only son, Darrnell. During her stay in New York City, she worked various jobs until the late 90’s. She was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, cousin, friend and one of the BEST aunts we had. Eula loved a good card game and enjoyed trash talking as she slammed the cards on the table. “I beat you like I wanna” was one of her favorite lines to say. She moved to Virginia in the early 2000’s to help raise her great nieces and nephews. She worked a couple of jobs during her stay, Tyson Chicken plant and Manor Care assisted living facility. Eula, was very fond of family and enjoyed being a caregiver. During her stay in Virginia, she decided to accept Christ as her personal Lord and Savior and was baptized in the name of Jesus at New Life Christian Ministries. She attended church there until she moved back to Sumter, S. C., her southern roots. She worked at the pigeon plant until her health started declining. Eula fought a good fight and stayed strong until it was timed to depart this life.
