Eula was born the eldest child of the late Dan and Mary Reed Hunter on October 14. 1918 in Meridian, Mississippi. On July 18,1936, Eula married her husband of 63 years, Leo Carnathan, and to this union five children were born, Leroy, Mary Ann, Cecil, Essie, and Roger.

Throughout her life Eula enjoyed traveling, wether a day trip to Cleveland, a week in Birmingham, or a month in Miami. She was an excellent cook and "melt in your mouth" homemade rolls were #1 with everyone. Her life centered around her family. She was truly the heart and soul of it. Most of all, this beautiful woman was the glue holding them together. This remarkable lady will always be remembered for her love of faith, family, and friends. Eula leaves to cherish her memory her sons: Cecil (Renee) Carnathan and Roger Carnathan with whom she made her home, both of Youngstown, two brothers; John E. Hunter of Birmingham, Alabama, and Harvey (Ida) Hunter of Miami, FL., three grandchildren; Duane Carnathan Sr. of Massilon, Oh., Germaine Miles which whom she reared of Atlanta GA.,  Alexandra Carnathan, of Youngstown, great-grandchildren; Samuelle Miles of Atlanta, Duane Carnathan Jr., and Amanda Carnathan-Mitchell, of Massillon, Oh., and several great great-grandchildren.

Cecil, Renee, AJ, you remain in my thoughts and prayers. I never had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Carnathan, but I certainly share in your loss as I remember how you've spoken of her spirit and love. May God continue to comfort each of you during this difficult time, and grant you peace.
