Euphema Weiford passed away on Sunday, April 5, 2020, at her home in Petros with her Husband and Sister by her side. Aunt Fema as she was known to most of us was born in Petros to the rather large family of Bill and Ettie Liles on September 13, 1933.
Her Family and Friends meant everything to her. Spending time with them either camping, boating, eating, or simply visiting was what she enjoyed doing. She lived and died in Petros except for the time she spent in High School at Wartburg, going to college at Tennessee Tech, or working for both Burlington and Roane Hosiery Mills in Harriman.
She is survived by her husband Bobby, her siblings Ralph Liles and Judy Layne and Brother-in-law Tommy Weiford and Sister-in-law Christine Shirks and a bunch of friends, relatives and in-laws that are too numerous to name and of course by all of her nieces and nephews that thought of her as a second mom.
She was preceded in her trip to heaven by her mother and father, her sisters Rema, Wilma, and Linna, her brothers Roy, Reece, and Roger and by her great-nephew Alex and niece Lois. Who I am sure are as glad to see her as we are sorrowful that she is gone.
She will be greatly missed by all that knew her, but especially by her loving husband of 62 years Bobby, her siblings, her friends, and all of us that knew her as our second mom or grandmother.
In light of current events, the family understands that not everyone will feel comfortable coming out to show their respects. There will be a graveside service at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 10 at Petros cemetery, with Dr. Jim West officiating.
Schubert Funeral Home is honored to serve the family of Euphema Weiford.
