Salt Lake Tribune, The (UT) - May 23, 2001
Eunice Maxfield Black, 85, our dear mother and grandmother, passed away at home in South Jordan, UT May 20, 2001.
Born January 2, 1916, in Deseret, to Hyrum and Vilate Cropper Maxfield. Married J. Dee Black January 2, 1936, in Fillmore. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Manti Temple. He died January 16, 1988.
Eunice was employed as a telephone operator by Continental Telephone and retired after 25 years of service. She was active and faithful in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many capacities. She loved her home and many friends in Deseret, but began a new adventure by moving to South Jordan, in 1994 to be near her family. She was welcomed into a new circle of friends whom she dearly loved. Her activities and interests were Daughters of the Utah Pioneers, weekly temple assignments at the Jordan River Temple, lunches and outings with her friends, needlework, and reading. She was a dedicated and loving wife and mother and spent her life serving her family and friends.
With love and appreciation, her three children and their spouses thank and honor her: Russell (Marlene) Black, Gilbert, Arizona; Delene (Doug) Jackson, Sandy, Paula (Scott) Finlinson, North Bend, Washington. Gratefully remembering Grandma Black are nine grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. She is also survived by sister, Virginia Mavis Hyatt, Albany, Oregon.
Funeral services will be held Thursday, May 24, 2001 at 1p.m. in the Deseret-Oasis Ward chapel. Friends may call prior to the service from 11:30 AM to 12:40 PM. Interment will be in the Deseret Cemetery under the direction of Nickle Mortuary, Delta.
