Eunice Meyer Kibblin of North Fort Myers, Florida was born on February 6th,1948 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin to a beautiful French-speaking girl from Maine and a too-handsome-for-his-own-good Midwestern boy. Eunie, a self-professed tomboy, was raised on a farm, the third of four sisters. Growing up, Eunie had a habit of “collecting” pets and people. Drawing them to her with her charisma and endless amounts of love she had to give. It was a gift that would serve her well as she built a lifetime of true friends that would become like family.
Late night cribbage games with her cousins, phone calls with her sisters, road trips with her nieces and nephews, Christmas Eve with her girls — family was at the center of everything she did. Though none of whom were more special to her than Kathy, the daughter she adored, who was able to spend the last month of Eunice’s life by her side. As a mother, and later a beloved “Nana”, Eunice was as loving as she was goofy and as supportive as she was fun.
Friend, Sister, Mother, “Nana”, Life of the party — She’ll be greatly missed.
Eunice is survived by her daughter Kathy Tollard, her grandchildren Alyssa and Justin Taylor and Samantha Tollard, her step-sons Dewayne “Mushy” Blue and Anthony Cooley, her ex-husband Eddie Kibblin, her best friend Vicki Wilson, her special cousin Mike Meyer, her sisters Joyce (Jim) Binning, Connie (Jim) Mathwig, Patty (David) Bohnert, her brother Brett Davies, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Eunice was preceded in death by her parents Jean and Doug Meyer, her grandson Christian Daniel Tollard, and her special friend Herbie Wayne.
A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, August 28th at 2p at Tilly’s Too in Butte des Morts, Wisconsin.
