My Aunt Eulice was such a pillar of strength in our family. My mom (her sister) counted on her so much and Aunt Eulice was always there for her and all of us. My mom always recounted a story that showed what a take charge person my aunt was. My mom and Aunt Eulice were walking in downtown Lima and two men were about to come to blows in the street until my aunt stepped between them and told them to break it up and quit acting like children. Of course they listened to her. That was my Aunt Eulice! She will be so missed. She was a great bowler and golfer too!

Chris & family, & entire Spyker Family. I worked for Spyker Enterprises when I was at Shawnee High School. Joel & Eulice were so very kind to me, & they took me under their wing, & taught me so much! Helen Spyker & Steve too! I thought of Eulice like a mother with her sweet guidance. I was blessed to have had her in my life. Prayers to all, and thanks. Rae
