Wilma Nona Eubank was born August 18, 1932, in Thomas, Oklahoma to Carrenia A. West and Leonard C. Reed. Her biological parents passed away by the time she turned five. Carrenia died first, she had made arrangements with her cousin Cliff Pyeatt that if something happened to her husband, Leonard C. Reed, Cliff and Margie Pyeatt would take Wilma and raise her as their own. Leonard passed away two years after Carrenia. Earl L. & Bunah Heston, Wilma’s brother, gave her a home for approximately two years; all were heartbroken when she was adopted by Cliff and Margie. Cliff and Margie loved and cherished Wilma raising her in the Gem Community near Canadian.
Wilma married Andy Eubank, December 13, 1952, they had 6 children and fostered several other children, through out their lives…Wilma always had her hands full. After raising her family Wilma started her nursing career and earning her degree from Amarillo College. She worked many years at Hemphill County Hospital. Wilma was instrumental in establishing the hospice and home health programs in Canadian. After retiring in the late 80’s Andy and Wilma lived on the family ranch in the Gem community near Canadian. They spent several years taking care of their parents, aunts, and uncles, walking them through the end of their lives. Wilma and Andy enjoyed traveling and seeing family and friends scattered through out America. They moved to Amarillo in July of 2007. Wilma lost the love of her life on February 22, 2011. After Andy’s death she became very involved in her church, Southwest Church of Christ. Wilma had a renewed hunger and thirst for her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. From that point until present her one encouragement would be “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength. Seek God with all you have and don’t get lost in human tradition ~ if your gonna get lost get lost in Jesus.”
