Eunice was born in rural Cleveland County near Noble at her grandparents home. The family later moved into Norman and she attended Jefferson Elementary School. She graduated from Norman High School in 1957, where she was a member of the National Honor Society, Girls Glee Club, the Choralaires, and the Gingersnaps. She was also active in the Vespers choral group. She married the boy-next-door, Darrell Davenport, on June 24, 1956. They had three children.

Eunice was very talented musically and loved to play the piano and sing. She was the pianist at Alameda Baptist Church for several years. Eunice worked at Tinker Air Force Base in Materiel Management and retired in 1990 after 26 years of service.

Eunice's greatest joy was her family, both close and extended. She excelled in the role as hostess to many family gatherings of all sizes. She enjoyed traveling; her favorite place was Hawaii, which they visited several times. She and Darrell grew a large garden for many years and she froze and canned all of the produce that wasn't given away to friends and family.

Eunice also was an excellent seamstress making many of her and her daughters' clothes. She was an ardent OU fan and attended many football and basketball games. Eunice also enjoyed working in her flowerbeds and caring for her houseplants. In her spare time she read and did needlework.

Eunice Ann Oliphant Davenport, 69, joined her Heavenly Father on December 31, 2008, after a valiant battle with cancer. She passed away at home in Norman, Cleveland County, Oklahoma, surrounded by her family. She was laid to rest in the family plot at Independence Cemetery, Norman.
