Eunice recalled with relish her early years on the farm in Yale, S.D. At Tabor College, Hillsboro, Kan., she met Marvin. Together they pursued a love for the church, travelling and opening their home to countless visitors. They pastored Lendrum MB, Edmonton (1973–78); Mill Woods MB (now Sunrise), Edmonton (1978–83); Red Deer (Alta.) MB (1983–88); South Langley (B.C.) MB (1988–96); Saanich (B.C.) MB (2000–01). They retired to Pender Island, B.C. After Marvin’s unexpected death, Eunice remained vivacious and socially active. She continued to be involved in church activities, volunteer work, cooking, card-making, scrapbooking, sewing, displaying her handiwork at craft sales, visiting family and friends, and hosting dinner guests. Eunice took pleasure in interacting with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Cancer ended her life abruptly. She will be lovingly remembered.
