Eunice was born in May 1870, in Greenbush township, Milles Lacs MN. Eunice was the eighth child and the second daughter born to Joseph and Mary Ann. She was also the second child born in Minnesota. When she was nineteen years old her mother died of cancer. At 22 years old she was married. I suppose, that together with her sister Eugenia, she took care of the younger children who were still at home on the farm. (Adulphus (15), Delia (12), Louela (8), and Hubert (5)).

On 10/6/1892, at the age of 22, she married Emmanuel Gustave Waldhoff in Milles Lacs Township MN. Emmanuel was a the most successful business man in Foreston MN, according to the Princeton Union 1892. According to the notes of the genealogist Patty Kaliher, they had two daughters, Myrtle and Edith. Apparently, their children settled around the Minneapolis area. Eunice died on 19 Nov 1898 in North Branch, MN. She was about 28 years old. The cause of death was Consumption. (Tuberculosis)Eunice gravestone
