ANNIE WHEELER EUBANKS

[woman]

When it comes to Annie Wheeler Eubanks, you will conclude that she is a "Jack of All Trades and Master of Many." Annie was born in Tennessee in 1899 to Lewis and Mae Wheeler. She resided in Tennessee until she was one year of age then her family moved to Davidson, OK.

In 1923, Annie married Howard Eubanks. While Howard worked as a ginner and carpenter, Annie showed her versatility in making a living during these hard times. She chopped cotton and worked in a food locker up until WWII. During WWII, Annie worked as an assistant cashier at the First State Bank in Davidson. She also took time out to have a son and then decided to become a full-time housewife and mother.

Church activities played a big part in Annie's's life. She attended the Methodist Church where she sang in the choir and taught children there in Davidson. When the Eubanks moved to Lubbock in 1972, Annie continued to be a faithful member of the church and became a member of the First Methodist Church there.

In her leisure time Annie liked to crochet and cook. One of her favorite things to do was to can and make preserves. Annie says she is still making plans to do a little canning with friends this year.
