Eunice Manchester Crompton, 86, of Venice, FL, died on May 7, 2012. Funeral arrangements by: National Cremation & Burial Society.
Eunice Manchester Crompton passed on peacefully after a long illness.
She was born and raised in South Dartmouth, MA. Eunice was an honors graduate of Bridgewater State Teachers College and a sister of Phi Mu. She taught first grade in the New Bedford and North Easton School Systems.
Eunice enjoyed 64 years of marriage and is survived by her loving husband, J. Stuart Crompton of New Bedford, MA and Venice, FL. They were the parents of two children, Nancy Whittemore of Venice, FL and Jack Crompton, who predeceased his mother on May 5, 2012. Over their many years of marriage, Eunice and Stuart resided in South Dartmouth, North Easton and Yarmouthport, Mass., as well as Venice, FL.
Eunice was a very kind, humble and generous woman. She possessed a radiant smile, a twinkle in her eye and always had a kind word for everyone. She lived her life and raised her family by her own example in a very dignified and quiet way. Throughout her life, she taught Sunday school for 35 years, provided leadership for Brownie and Girl Scout troops, volunteered in numerous church and civic charities and was a proud member of her college club and P.E.O.
Eunice was an avid golfer, played competitive bridge and was a lifelong collector of antiques. Above all else, Eunice's true passion was her lifelong devotion to her family. She was a loving wife, caring mother and doting "Nana" to 7 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. Words cannot express how much she will be missed by all those who knew her and were fortunate enough to have their lives touched by this magnificent lady. We will always love her and cherish in our heart the many fond memories and blessings she gave to all who knew her.
A memorial service will take place on May 19, 2012 at 11 AM at the Venice Nokomis United Methodist Church. A graveside service for Eunice and her son Jack, will take place this summer in South Dartmouth, MA.
