7 Condolences for Eunice F. Turner Clark

  • Aunt Eunice was a treasure, a true Southern Lady, and the very epitome of love in action. I will miss the wonderful visits to Delaware to see her and Uncle Bill. I know she and my Mama are laughing so hard right now that Jesus is telling them to settle down. Love you, Aunt Eunice. Buh Bye.

  • Bill, Linda, Sharon, your mother was a very special lady to Lonnie and I both. We loved her deeply and always loved talking with her. We even had our own nickname for her “Aunt Worrywart” cause she was always worried about everyone else and never herself. Please know that you will be in our thoughts, prayers and hearts as you go through these next difficult days.
    with love, Lonnie and Carol

  • Dear Bill and Family,
    My heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. Recently, I had to move my 93 year old mother from assisted living to a nursing home and understand the demands placed upon our loved ones in latter life. It was a difficult decision but a necessary one. I truly treasure the many, many, happy times I had with her and my dad. I do hope that you and your family have wonderful childhood and adulthood memories as well.

  • Our hearts are saddened at the loss of your mother, grandmother and
    Great grandmother. She was such a sweet and special lady who made
    Everyone around her happier. I know you will miss her.
    May God bless you and comfort you.

  • Dear Mr. Clark and Family:
    Please accept the sympathies of the residents and staff at Millcroft. During the time that Mrs. Clark was a resident, we grew to love her as one of our own. May God bless andcomfort you during this difficult time.

  • We offer our prayers and heart felt sympathy to Eunice’s loved ones. May God give you strength as you mourn her passing. Her life was a blessing to all those who knew her.

    So sorry to hear of your loss. Prayers go out to you. I know how hard this can be but the only thought that ran through my mind when I heard of your Mom’s passing was that she is now reunited with your Dad.
