    To the family of Eula,
    I had the pleasure of working with her at Wright County from 2001 through her retirement. I enjoyed her good nature and caring attitude. My sincerest condolences to the family. She was a very nice woman.

    I can’t help but smile to see your Mother’s face. I went to school with Danny and worked many years ago with Noreen at the Retirement Center. The reason I smile is because I still remember the colored bread she would put in your school lunches and always thought how what a cool thing for a Mom to do. She was really a special person and I am sure she is missed deeply.
