Eula Mae was a bookkeeper for Kraus Jewelry in Kenton, Ohio.

Eula Mae's loving and generous heart touched everyone who knew her and shaped everything she did. She gave comfort with a smile, loved unconditionally, and put others before herself without asking for thanks or recognition. A lover of life and people, there was seldom a time that family or friends visited her that they weren't received with a heartwarming smile and a homemade cookie. Hers was the deepest, steadiest kind of love and it made such a difference to everyone, especially those of us lucky enough to call her family How can we thank God enough for you and the joy and delight you have given? Thessalonians 3:9 TLB
