EULA MAE CUMMINGS TURNED 99 YEARS OLD ON JUNE 22
By Simone T. Owens
Summer Intern, The News Journal

According to Florence native Eula Mae Cummings, her strong Christian values are what keep her active and well. Cummings who turned 99 on June 22 has not let her age slow her down. She is still very active in her church and in the Florence community. On her special day, she walked with ease around her church (Church of God in Christ Jesus Apostolic) where she has been a member for more than 60 years. Cummings spent her younger years being a housewife, working in the cafeteria of Carver Elementary and at McCall Farms. Traveling and gardening are just a couple of Cummings’ current hobbies.

She is also involved with Northwest Senior Citizens, and she often cooks stew for seniors at the senior center. The superb citizen is also incredibly independent. She lives alone and cooks for herself. Cummings is grateful to be independent and physically able to do some of her favorite hobbies, but Jesus, her children and her church family are the most important things in her life. “Jesus is the one that keeps me going. I can’t do anything without Jesus,” says Cummings. Cummings also goes by the Christian principle, “Only one life and it will soon be passed, and only what’s done for Christ will last.” A birthday celebration for Cummings was held June 29.
