Eula Holliday

Eula Mae Turner Holliday, 101, died October 19, 2020, at her residence, as was her wish.

She was born in Breathitt County, March 26, 1919, the daughter of the late Ona Wells Turner and the late Sam Turner. She attended Berea Foundation School after her father died when she was nine. She graduated from both Berea Foundation and Berea College, which she supported as a member of the President's Club. She came to Perry County as a home economist working for the Stuart Robinson Foundation based at Homeplace Clinic, in Ary, where she met Elmer.
In 1948, with a small GI loan, she and Elmer established and co-owned Perry Farm Center, a unique service based farm, hardware, appliance and furniture business. Despite losing practically everything in the 1957 flood, Eula and Elmer considered it an honor to have General Electric restore their customer's appliances which were destroyed in the flood, or delivering appliances at night or on weekends to prevent loss of a customer's food, or just giving advice on gardening. They had a very special relationship with many of their loyal customers during their 43 years of business.
She was a founding member of Hull Presbyterian Church. She loved reading, education, farming, travel and was a gourmet cook. She believed education was essential and both encouraged and helped many young people attend Berea College. Her hard earned travels ranged from most of the United States to Europe and China. Integrity, hard work, humbleness and service to others and devotion to family was the code she lived by and inspired in those who knew her.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 59 years, Elmer Holliday; one sister, Rachel Rose Turner Jackson of Crocketsville; one brother, Sam Turner Jr. of Hazard; son-in-law, Tony Asbury Jr. of Hazard;

She is survived by two daughters, Sharon Ann Holliday Asbury, Eliza Jane Holliday both of Hazard; one sister, Helen Ogle of Cincinnati, OH; many nephews; nieces; and special caregivers; and friends, Glynetta Ritchie, Omar Cortez and Jeff Asbury.

Due to Covid a graveside service was held at 3 p.m. Thursday, October 22, at Riverside Cemetery with Rev. Dana Feltner officiating. Arrangements were under the direction of Maggard’s Mtn. View Chapel of Hazard.

In lieu of flowers, please make contributions to Hull Presbyterian Church of Hazard or Berea College, CPO, Berea, KY.
