Obituary for Eula Butrick

Eula Richmond Butrick, age 102, of Boone and the Westhaven Community, left this world on June 1, 2018, as peacefully as she arrived into it.

Funeral Services will be Saturday, June 9, 2018, at 10:30 a.m. at the Schroeder-Reimers Memorial Chapel at Sixth and Marshall, with Rev. Duane Lundberg officiating. Burial will be in the West Lawn Cemetery in Glidden.

Eula Maude (Garvin) Butrick, was born in rural Luther, Iowa on August 29, 1915, the daughter of John and Clara (Bentley) Garvin. She attended and graduated from Luther High School in 1933. Eula married F. Wayne Richmond. The couple later divorced. She married Merritt Butrick. A lifelong Boone County resident, Eula was a proud mother, wife, and grandmother to all, but most important, was self-sustaining up to the last few years of her life. In earlier years, she worked as a sales clerk at the former, Graham Department Store, Juli-Anne Shop, P.M. Places, and Walt’s Card Shop all in Boone.

Eula was a member of the First Evangelical Free Church in Boone. She participated in bowling leagues for many years, enjoyed crocheting and making blankets for her family, gig saw puzzles, playing cards, especially pinochle and Uno, and watching the Bob Ross painting programs on television. For many years, Eula was a member of the Boone Rebekah Lodge.

At the age of 95, she lost her desire to drive her 1980 Plymouth Horizon Hatchback and submitted her license. At age 100, Eula moved from her apartment and independent living into Westhaven.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her two husbands; a son Kenneth Richmond and wife, Geraldine; a grandson, Marty Joe Mondt; five brothers, Edwin, John, Roger, Gerald, and Jim Garvin.

Eula is survived by a son, Gary Richmond and wife, Kay of Boone; a daughter, Shirley Peterson and husband, Pete of Urbandale; 10 grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren, and 23 great-great grandchildren; many nieces and nephews.

Friends may call at the Schroeder-Reimers Chapel on Friday, from 5 to 7 p.m., at which time the family will be present. On Saturday, friends may call from 8:00 a.m. until service time.
