Eunice M. Shadle

eunice shadle
As peacefully as one can imagine, Eunice Carr Shadle, our Mother, Uneek, Meemaw, friend and artist extraordinaire, joined Jesus in His heavenly kingdom and her forever home on December 12, 2022.

After working for Buick Motor Division's corporate office for nearly 30 years, Eunice realized her ability and passion as an artist following retirement in 1982. Guided by her art teacher and mentor, Eunice was part of art classes at The Woman's Club of Chevy Chase more than 40 years after becoming a member in 1974.

Eunice's early years began on a farm in Nelson County, Virginia on April 1, 1921 with her mother, Edith, and father, Derry, plus two brothers and countless animals. Eventually, she was led to Washington, DC, where she was graduated from Central High School, followed by a position with the War Department in the Navy during WWII.

During and after the war, Eunice was busy raising three children, Evelyn Patricia McLaughlin, Thomas Wilton Morris (deceased July 2020) and Jessica Bernice Lombardi.

The fruits of Eunice's beautiful life gave her much pleasure with her 10 grandchildren, many great-grandchildren and 3 nephews. It must be noted that Eunice’s only granddaughter, Michelle Larkin has been assisting as a devoted caregiver for many years.

On Eunice’s 100th birthday, she was asked by the Frederick News-Post what she credited her longevity to. She quickly quipped that she was a God-Fearing Woman.

Funeral arrangements have been made by Money & King, Vienna, VA. Her funeral will be held on December 29, 2022 at her church of more than 30 years, Trinity United Methodist, McLean, Virginia. Viewing will be at 11:00 am and the service at 12:00 pm. Interment will be private at Fort Lincoln Cemetery, Brentwood, Maryland.

Expressions of sympathy can be made to the following: Trinity United Methodist Church, 1205 Dolley Madison Blvd, McLean, VA 22101 or Montevue Assisted Living, c/o Ladies Auxiliary at Citizens Care and Rehabilitation Center, 1910 Rosemont Ave., Frederick, MD 21702.

Memories Timeline


  1. I will always remember Eunice’s classic beauty, her gorgeous style and her incredible talent as an artist. It was always a pleasure when I was in her company. With love and sympathy to Jess and Larry and their
    lovely family. ❤️Cari

  2. Some of the stories Eunice told about her childhood were predictive of the adult she would become. Her brothers told her not to walk in the woods because there were bears, but Eunice went anyway, taking the dog for protection. When the river flooded, she stood on the bank and saw an orange trapped in some debris at the side. She tried to reach it but couldn’t so she got a big stick and poked it until it was free. Then she caught it as it floated by. She still remembered how sweet the orange was but her brothers were very upset that she had been so daring. That was Eunice being Eunice.
