Eunice Mae Floyd was born on March 27, 1958 to the late Emma L. Beach Floyd and Nathaniel Floyd, Sr. in Belhaven, Virginia.

She was the second child of five children. Her family later moved to Felton, Delaware where she attended and graduated from Lake Forest High School. She majored in Fine Arts at Delaware State College, presently known as Delaware State University.

At the age of seven she attended Emmanuel Pentecostal Church of God, Inc. in Camden, Delaware with her aunt, Missionary Mae Floyd. She received Christ at the age of 12. She remained a faithful member at Emmanuel under her pastor, Bishop Joseph P. Cooper, Sr. until her passing. She served on the usher board, the benevolence committee, and was the longest original member of the Pentecostal Choral Ensemble. She was a devoted worker in the church, an interpreter of dreams, a mighty prayer warrior and a true praise and worshipper who loved the Lord. Eunice loved to pray and read her word. She was a member of an intercessory prayer group that prayed every morning. She could be heard quoting her favorite scripture, 2Chronicles 7:14, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” She loved listening to praise and worship songs. Her most remembered worship song was “Alabaster Box” and she loved to hear the choir sing “I Never Lost My Praise.” She found this song to be her personal testimony saying, “After everything I been through, I never lost my faith nor my praise. These things the devil can’t take from me!” Eunice always exercised great faith, constantly reminding herself and others that “It ain’t over until God says it’s over.”

 Her favorite hobbies were arts & crafts, decorating, cooking, sewing and helping others in need. Eunice was also co-founder and staff member of On Point Catering Services. She was a spiritual mentor to many. She was employed with Kraft Foods for 17 years.

Eunice departed this life on Sunday, April 29, 2012 at the age of 54 in Milford Memorial Hospital after a short illness.
