She was a member of First United Methodist Church in Rockwall and enjoyed monthly meetings with her friends at local cafes. Her sweet spirit will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

Eubank and wife Brenda of Marble Falls, TX; grandchildren: Dustin Vaden and wife Diedra, Brandy Hanna and husband Rick, Aaron Selden and wife Adrienne, Blair Selden and wife Ashley, Kenyon Richard and husband Andrew, Todd Hemphill and wife Rebecca, Tori Hemphill; eleven great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; father of her children: Gene H. Vaden; second husband: John Salley; sisters: Ola Beth Crawford and Joanne Page; and two brothers: Jim Bob Eubank and Warren Randall Eubank, and granddaughter Teeka Hemphill.
