Eunice Elizabeth Waddell


obit-waddellEunice Elizabeth Waddell went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ at 3:15 p.m. on Dec. 30, 2015, in Colorado Springs, Colo., surrounded by her family.

Eunice was a Christian; she enjoyed reading her Bible, doing puzzles and spending time with her family. She was witty and silly, she was a wonderful cook, a devoted wife and mother and a caregiver for many. She lived most of her life in northern Indiana and worked as a homemaker and then as an assembler at Penn Controls beside her husband, Wilbur, for 22 years. She moved to Colorado Springs in 2009 with her daughter, Sharon, and shared time between there and Pagosa Springs with her son, Terry Waddell, and his wife, Debbie, until her passing.

She is survived by her children: Myrna Dieffenderfer, of Colorado Springs, Sharon Best, also of Colorado Springs, and Terry (Deborah) Waddell, of Pagosa Springs. She is also survived by six grandchildren, six great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren, as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Hugo and Mable Searls; her brothers, Robert and Walter; her sisters, Ines and Marie; her husband, Wilbur Waddell (1983); her daughter, Wilburta Waddell (2011); her grandson, Gunner Pender (2001); and a son-in-law, Earl Dieffenderfer (2011).

The family asks that any memorial donations be made to a hospice program of your choosing. Please remember her and her family in your prayers.
