Eurilla (Rilla) was born in Garden City, Utah.. She was graduated from the Paris Fielding Academy after learning how to be a school teacher. She was asked to teach for about one year. After that experience she met her first husband, Lavell Hyrum Rich and got married 8 Oct 1919. After having two children with him and one on the way, he died from complications after an appendicitus operation. She made a living in various ways with her family for about four years. After making a trip to Jackson, Wyoming, she met Joy S. Wilson at a dance. After a short courtship they got married 4 Dec 1929 at Logan, Utah. Joy took his new family home to his ranch in South Park, Jackson, Wyoming.
They moved to Boise valley after she had two more sons with Joy. They liked a warmer climate & the better school opportunities. Eurilla always liked the ranch and farm experience as there was always food available inspite of the hard work involved. She often said that the best place to raise a family is on a farm. She lived to be 90 years old before passing away at Boise, Idaho living about 17 years longer than Joy. They worked well together and had a very ordered, happy family.

She exhibited all the qualities of a good mother. I was fortunate to have her as my mother.
