Obituary of Eunice Woodward

Please share a memory of Eunice to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Marjorie Eunice Woodward, better known to all as Eunice or “Woody”, passed away at the Provost Hospital with loved ones by her side on January 7, 2023.

She was born on October 28, 1942 in Macklin, Saskatchewan and took her early years of schooling in Macklin before attending nursing school in Wainwright. She nursed in Wainwright, then moved to Lloydminster to begin her long career of nursing and providing care to other others at the Lloydminster Hospital before retiring in 2007 and moving back down to Macklin.

Her lifelong passion of horses got her involved in many horse show committees, clinics, and 4-H when her daughters were young which made it possible to do many family things such as horse shows, trail rides, horse clinics and she had much delight in doing them all. Over the years she had taken great pleasure watching many youth grow into adults with successful jobs and still loving their hobby or passion of riding horses.

Eunice loved to travel to horse shows with her daughter, Danita, and spent the summer going down the road to all the horse shows and fairs where she met many great lifelong friends. Once retired, she was then able to travel to many places such as Montana and Arizona, with her daughter, Dawn, where again she met many different people who became her very good US friends.  She spent her winter down in Arizona and looked forward to heading south every year.  Eunice also loved to go to daily coffee with her coffee gang. She was involved with the Seniors group in Macklin where she was able to play cards which she really enjoyed. Her biggest passion in life was reading a good book. She was famous for always having a book tucked in somewhere so she could always sneak in a quick read.

Eunice is survived by her daughters, Dawn (Kim Hames) and Danita (Darrell) Stang; her loving dog, Tia; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Eunice was predeceased by her parents, Bill & Doreen Thompson; and brother, Billy Thompson.

If friends so desire, donations are gratefully accepted to the Lakeview Cemetery in Macklin or Border Paws Animal Shelter in Lloydminster.

In keeping with Eunice’s wishes, a private family service will be held at Gregory’s Funeral Home.
