I was saddened to here of Eunice’s passing. Condolences to her family.

She was a classmate and a friend of mine back at St. Boniface School, Ramea. We also stayed together for a couple of years while attending Memorial University. She was a positive influence on my life back then. We shared good times, laughter and tears. We were both passionate about things back in the day, so of coarse we also argued, like friends do. She embraced life and love. She always enjoyed sports as did I and that gave us an extended bond during those years. She was a great teammate when you played with her and she was a fierce opponent when you played against her. She was determined to succeed at everything she did. Time has a way of mellowing and changing all of us, however I would like to think that she kept some of those qualities throughout the years. For me it’s what gave her a special and unique personality. May god grant you peace and strength in the coming days.
God Bless.

Eunice was one in a million. She had a twinkle in her eye that made you instantly comfortable in her presence. The first time I met Eunice, she said she felt like she’d known me forever, and after only a few minutes of conversation, I felt the same. I saw Eunice as a very kind, patient, and passionate human being, she was an amazing listener and was genuinely interested in what you had to say. When it was her turn to speak, she often drew on her teaching skills and experience to offer advice, she was most definitely the eternal teacher. I can’t think of anything more honorable to be remembered as. She leaves a legacy of not only her own children, but the lives of many more children of whom she touched, and live eternally in the hearts of. I am privledged to have known you Eunice, and we are blessed to have felt your kindness.

So, so sorry to hear of Eunice’s passing. Another woman gone way too soon. Cherish all the wonderful memories. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the family as they suffer their second loss in such a short time. God bless you all. Hugs.

George, Perry, David,Paul, Peter and Eunice’s family, my heart goes out to all of you as you lay Eunice to rest just two weeks after your dad. Hold tight to your memories and take care of each other. Hugs.

Our sincere condolences to Eunice’s family.

Condolences to the family.

Eunice was an inspiration to everyone she met and touched many lives throughout her own.
