Eula McGarity Dies At 94

After a journey that began in the Mississippi Delta on October 22, 1919, Eula V. McGarity has surely been welcomed to her eternal home with the words, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant." Mrs. McGarity's earthly life came to an end on January 21, at Saint Vincent's Riverside Hospice Center in Jacksonville, Florida. 

Having lived her early years in Mississippi, she moved with her first husband, William Clinton "Bud" Anderson, who preceded her in death in 1964, and their children to LaBelle, Florida in the early 1960s. Most recently she lived for several years in Jacksonville.

Mrs. McGarity is survived by her six children W. B. "Andy" (Myrna) Anderson, Dorrece Mathis, Clinton (Lou) Anderson, Carlton Anderson, Elaine (Gary) Driver, Wayne (Kay) Anderson, and two step children Richard (June) McGarity and Betty Jo (McGarity) Semken. 

She is also survived by 24 grandchildren, 46 great-grandchildren and 12 great/great-grandchildren. 

She was preceded in death by her husband William Clinton "Bud" Anderson, her second husband, Vic McGarity, her parents Lewis and Virginia Harrison, 17 brothers and sisters, her beloved son-in-law Maurice Mathis, two grandsons, Kenneth Mathis and Greg McGarity and great grandson, Justin Anderson and great-great grandson.
Mrs. McGarity's Celebration of Life will take place Friday, January 24, at 1:00 p.m. at First Church of God in LaBelle, under the direction of Akin-Davis Funeral home. Visitation will precede the service at 12:00 NOON. Her service will be officiated by her two sons, Reverends Carlton and Wayne Anderson. 

Interment will be at the Fort Denaud Cemetery.
