Eula McQuinn Ghere was born September 29, 1923 in Butler, Missouri. She graduated from Butler High School and attended college in Warrensburg, Missouri. Eula was united in marriage to Joe Wix Ghere on October 4, 1942. As her husband served with the US Army Air Force during WWII, Eula would travel with him and work service jobs on the base. Eula was an active member of Butler First Christian Church Disciples of Christ until her later years. She also enjoyed playing golf, but one of her greatest loves was to travel. She and Joe traveled the United States and abroad over the years. They looked forward to their yearly road trip with their grandson across the continental US, she enjoyed showing him the country she was so proud of. Joe would drive, grandson B.J. would be the map reader, and Eula was just along for the fun.

Eula was preceded in death by her parents, husband Joe Ghere in 2010, and by four siblings. She is survived by her daughter Meri Jo Sexson and husband Bill, grandson BJ Sexson and wife Vanessa, two great-grandchildren, and by one sister Ruby Cummings.
