Eunice was a businesswoman who was part of the family business of Teckpak for many years. Eunice had a love for life and a love of people. She travelled all over the world but always thought the best place was home... She was always smiling and willing to help anyone. Her passion for life extended to her family, friends, church, flower garden, and finding a great bargain at Goodwill. Eunice had a philosophy best summed up by Harriet Morgan “Our family is a circle of strength and love… with every birth and every union the circle grows… every joy shared adds more love…every crisis faced together makes the circle stronger."
