Eunice married Marvin Shever. To this union two sons were born, Rick and Kent. Eunice and Marvin would later part ways. On November 13, 1962, Eunice was united in marriage to Marvin Clause.

The family made their home in Anthon where Eunice was a hair stylist and later moved to Sioux City where Eunice worked in the county treasurer’s office. Eunice and Marvin later moved to Plentywood, Montana, where Eunice was employed at a John Deere Implement dealer as an office manager for a number of years. The couple decided they wanted to return to Anthon to be closer to family. After returning to Iowa, Eunice was employed at the Woodbury County Treasurer’s office until her retirement.

Eunice was a member of the United Methodist Church of Anthon and a former Worthy Matron of the Order of the Eastern Star. She enjoyed baking, knitting, sewing, gardening, going for walks and time with her pets.
