Eudora Gilcrease

July 11, 1925 - May 15, 2021

Eudora Louise Cunningham was born on July 11, 1925, at her grandparents’ home in Wilson, Louisiana. During her childhood years her father’s job with Missouri Pacific Railroad gave the family the opportunity to live in several of the major metropolitan areas of southeast Texas – Huffman, Kenefick, Hardin, Hull, and Grayburg. Eudora married Jack Gilcrease in Sour Lake on August 18, 1950. Jack’s job with Sun Oil Co. gave the family the chance to live in Sunset, Louisiana, Winnie, Texas, Humble, Texas, and Garland, Texas. After the death of her husband, Eudora returned to Beaumont where she lived for the last thirty years.

Eudora is survived by her daughter, Karen Pietrowski and son-in-law, Ray Pietrowski, of Houston and son, Jack Wade Gilcrease, of Beaumont.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Jack and sister and best friend, Helen Cunningham, of Sour Lake, both of whom she is delighted to be reunited with. May eternity provide the joy that has been missing in the later years of life.

Eudora will be laid to rest at a private graveside under the direction of Broussard’s, 1605 North Major Drive, Beaumont.

Memorial contributions may be made to American Cancer Society, P.O. Box 42040, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73123.

Dear cousins Wade and Karen. I am so sorry for your (and our) loss. Aunt Eudora was always so much fun. She was the last of that generation of the Gilcrease family. In her 96 years she witnessed so many events and milestones. May she Rest In Peace.
