Eula Darlene McKee, age 60, passed away at her rural Bronson home on June 26, 2018, after a brief illness.
Eula was born on Jan. 15, 1958, in Garnett, to Walter J. Stotler and Iva J. Zornes Stotler. Eula married the love of her life, Douglas McKee, on July 9, 1973, in Iola. Eula attended Colony High School.
Eula loved her family, loved to fish, loved to sew, and she had a special love for small children. She helped her dad run his store in Moran. She was known to be very kind and loving, but also had a “firecracker” side when provoked. Eula was known for her honesty, integrity, and generosity. She liked to scrapbook. Eula always had her nails painted, make-up done to perfection, and she always looked nice. Eula collected Fenton Glass and was an antique glass expert.
Eula is survived by her husband of the home, one daughter, Angela McKee-Jimenez and husband, Juan Jimenez, Mission; two sons, Anthony McKee and wife, Jessica, Overland Park, and Austin McKee, Bronson; father, Walter J. Stotler, Moran; one sister, Annetta Reed and husband, Larry, Moran; two brothers, Walter “Bounce” Stotler and wife, Cathy, Emporia, and Dewey Stotler and wife, Kathy, Moran; and numerous other relatives.
Eula was preceded in death by her mother, Iva Stotler, and one sister, Joyce Howell.
