Sister Eula was born in Washington Parish on Dec. 8, 1927, to Wilbur and Annice Marks. She had a passion for cooking and loved children. One of the greatest joys in her life was having them around to cook and feed them and to send them off with candies and snacks and big smiles on their faces.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Wilbur and Annice Marks; two sisters, Helen Pearson and Mary Marks; and two brothers, Jessie Marks and J.W. Marks.

Visitation will be held Friday, July 12 at Cook-Richmond Funeral Home of Bogalusa from 2-5 p.m., with a family hour from 5-6 p.m.
