I worked with Eunice a number of years. She was a hard worker and always dressed like a professional.

I believe your mother was the last surviving member of that generation from the old neighborhood. That era has now passed, but a lot of memories from our childhood remain.

We miss our wonderful neighbor, Eunice! We lived on the same block just a couple of houses away! After a few years living on the block, you could see that Eunice loved being outside where she kept her yard up impeccably! She always dressed up and looked so cute! My grandkids always wanted to go see and talk to her outside! I loved visiting her over cookies and coffee on Sundays, and hearing all her stories about growing up in Georgia!
Our family has missed her since she sold her home! You are, and will always be missed, Miss Peachee!
