9 Tributes for “Eula D. Booth

    Bonnie,I want to send you my sympathies in the loss of your mom. I remember her from many years ago. Haven’t seen you in probably 40 years, hope you’re doing well.

    Eula really impacted my teen years through the united methodist church. Her energy and passion for life was addicting! I truly am saddened to hear of her passing. What an incredible woman!

    Many, many years ago I taught Eula in a class at Bay College. I found her to be not only a fine person but a very able student. Of course the way of success was paved for her by her mother, whom I taught in the summer of of 1969 or 1970. It was from Elizabeth that I discovered that the Erickson family values learning. so the bar was set high for Eula, and she sailed over it. Please accept these inadequate words of sympathy for Eula.

    While attending the funeral of my Uncle John Anthony I was introduced to Eula as one of my cousins, something removed. She was a kind and gracious woman. Later, I enjoyed seeing her in Las Vegas where she was visiting her wonderful daughter Bonnie. I am glad to have met Eula and glad to call Bonnie cousin, something removed.

    Eula was a wonderful adventurer. She shared her love of sailing, and many tales of her family’s trip down the Mississippi river to the Bahamas.
    I am sorry I will miss her funeral services to pay my respects in person – but she will be long remembered as a friend.

    Eula was a beautiful person and I loved to hear all the stories she would share with me. I valued the time I shared with her. She caputured a part of my heart . I will remember her always!
