A beautiful lady inside and out. She fought the “good fight” to
the end. She was always welcoming to the Brophy family.
Rest in peace Eunice.
My Aunt Eunice was an awesome lady. As a kid I always looked forward to going to Aunt Eunice & Uncle Bernie’s house. Many, many good memories. One that I still recall relatively often is a summer gathering at grandma & grandpa Rechtins. Aunt Eunice was on the swing under the porch and sang Edelweiss. She always had a smile for you and a wonderful laugh .Prayers for the family.
We are saddened to hear of our dear friend Eunice`s death.May she rest in peaace
Dear Bernie, Theresa, Tom, Becky and Rita, I am very saddened to hear about Eunice’s passing. She was a brave warrior that fought long and hard. I know that she was tired and had also made her peace. My first memory of Mrs. Rechtin was being the mother of my newest friends and neighbors. Forward some 25 years and I was honored to become her hairdresser…we became fast friends. I no longer referred to her as Mrs. Rechtin but as Eunice. She shared her knowledge and wisdom with me during those years and taught me many things. Eunice always reminded me how important family was as she shared her love of family and what that meant to her. I knew how much she loved her children and grandchildren. I knew that you, Bernie, were her rock during these past few years and she always told me how blessed she was to have you as a husband. We laughed much and we cried some about the many blessings in our lives. I will miss my friend as she enters her eternal life. Peace and Hugs to you all.
