Eunice Hood

Obituary Date: Wednesday, August 18, 2021

Eunice went to her heavenly home on August 18, 2021, in McDonough, GA. She was born on March 24, 1942, and raised in Cleveland, GA. In 1960 she married James Staton of Cleveland, GA and together they moved to Stockbridge, GA where they resided with their children for over 25 years.

While living in Stockbridge, Eunice regularly attended First Baptist Church where she enjoyed working with children of all ages.

Eunice was a compassionate woman who took a great interest in helping children with special needs.

In the summer, Eunice worked diligently growing and canning fruits and vegetables for her family. Her pickled peaches were a favorite! She also took great pleasure in sharing fresh cut flowers from her garden with the elderly in her community. At home, she loved to sew, crochet, and do crafts with her children.

Most of all, Eunice is remembered for being a devoted mother. Raising her children was her greatest joy. Her children describe her as being patient, encouraging, thoughtful, and loving.

She is preceded in death by her parents William and Aveleen Hood, twin daughters Fay and Kay Staton, and son Joseph Staton.

She is survived by her brother Edward (Doris) Hood, and daughter Velma (Curt) DeGroff. Grandchildren are Lisa (Stacy) Crump, Ashley Uecker, Siara Uecker, Spencer Uecker, and Autumn Uecker. Great Grandchildren include Caleb Crump, Dresden Abbott, and Sebastian Abbott.

Graveside services are scheduled for 2:00 P.M. Saturday, September 11, 2021, at County Line Baptist Church Cemetery.

The family will receive friends from 12:30 – 1:30 P.M. Saturday at Barrett Funeral Home.
