Eula Mae Yates Trantham, 95, passed away on Monday, July 29, 2019, at Haywood Regional Medical Center.
A native of Grundy, Virginia, Eula was the daughter of the late Robert and Mary Yates. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Paul W. Trantham; and two brothers and a sister.
Eula is survived by her two daughters, Ruth Sprague and her husband Keith of New Smyrna Beach, Florida, and Martha T. Grasty of Waynesville; five grandchildren, Martha J. Grasty, Sarah Landreville, John, Matthew, and Mark Grasty; and four great grandchildren.
We wish to express our gratitude to Maggie Valley Nursing and Rehabilitation Home and all of her caregivers. She lived there the last seven years of her life and loved everyone. She was never one to stay in her room, and she loved chocolate kisses. She will be greatly missed, but we have the confidence in Christ that we will meet again in His glorious kingdom.
A private graveside service will be held for the family at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Global Gospel Initiatives, P.O. Box 568, Waynesville, NC 28786.
