Eula Lorene Sells Modrick – January 21, 2018


Eula Lorene Sells Modrick, a long-time resident of Amarillo, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, January 21, 2018 in Amarillo, TX.
Born on January 25, 1939 in Shattuck Oklahoma, Eula graduated high school from Laverne, OK and continued her education at Panhandle State University (now OPSU) as a double major in Education and Home Ec. She married Ed Modrick on December 20, 1959 and then taught for 7 years in Guymon, Oklahoma and 30 years in CISD.
She is proceeded in death by her parents Don Lee Sells and Edna Bernice Sells.
Eula is survived by her husband, Reverend Ed Modrick, daughter La Parsha Wise and son-in-law Michael Wise; Four Grandchidren:Jonathan Paul Wise, wife Shann Wise, J’Rhea Elyse Carrillo, husband Joshua Carrillo, Josalynn Lea Maskill, husband Tim Maskill, Jacob Lyndon Modrick Wise; Two Great-Grandchildren: Jonathan Caleb Wise, Levi Michael Modrick Carrillo.
Eula loved teaching and educating children but more than anything Eula’s passion was for her Lord and her family. She allowed God to always be number one in her life and taught her daughter and grandchildren to do the same. Eula’s faith in the Lord was incredible and was notably one of the greatest Prayer Warriors. Her belief in the power of prayer resonated through her family and friends and is one of the greatest gifts she passed down to her family. Eula enjoyed listening to her husband preach, attending their church from the front pew every Sunday for 50 years.
Eula loved gardening and had a beautiful talent with plants and flowers. She never missed a gardening season and made every effort to make her home bright and inviting. An incredible cook, Eula entertained and blessed her family and friends with her delicious food and hospitality. Among her grandkids’ favorites were her mashed potatoes and Red Velvet cake, which she made from scratch for everyone’s birthday. She never wrote down her recipes, recalling every little detail from memory, so her magic touch in baking will be missed.
Her beautiful and peaceful spirit filled each room as she made every day special with her family. Although she would never admit, Eula was voted Homecoming Queen in college. She was truly a beautiful woman. Eula’s greatest joy in life was being Mammy to her four grandkids. She enjoyed attending all musical and sporting events and between her four grandkids, managed to be at all of them. Mammy was the most proud of all their accomplishments and of course, thought her grandkids were always the best. She traveled all over to watch them play their favorite sports and thought the world of her grandkids, loving them harder than anyone. She taught them next to God, family is the most important thing and believed that a good home-cooked meal was the best way to celebrate family. Eula was a nurturer, always finding ways to better take care of other people, especially her grandkids. We will continue to carry Mammy with us in our memories and in our prayers.
Services will be at 2:00 p.m., Thursday, January 25, 2018, at Washington Avenue Christian Church with Jim Shelburne officiating.  Burial will be in Memory Gardens Cemetery.  Arrangements are by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors, 2800 Paramount Blvd.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all now. I loved Eula so much. She helped me raise my children and was a wonderful help at church when Hillery and Justin were small. She gave me wonderful advice on raising Justin, especially. What a loving and precious woman. I see her in all of you and I love her through you. God’s comfort and peace be with you. Hug Ed close. I know he must be lost right now. I will continue to lift you up in prayer. God bless you all.

    What a beautiful woman, I know LaParsha is also. I remember fondly Tupperware days at Wrangler in Amarillo with LaParsha and Ed, what a hoot he could be and then turn as serious about our Lord. I was from Dumas at that time to help you remember, Jackie’s Jewels. I am now in Stillwater as a widow close to family and keep in close contact with Charlene Goodson, our distributor as she is widow also. We spent more time together when I was in Beaver, Oklahoma and she in Norman than we do now so close due to both of our health. Definitely not because of OSU and OU connections as that will never come between our true friendship. May God bless each as you travel the pathway ahead our Lord has for each individual, that is why it isn’t pathways. Grieve-as-you must, not-as-others will tell you is right, wrong or indifferent. Cling tightly to God as He is our best guide.
