Eulah M. (Wisehart) Payne, daughter of W. H. and Ora (Harbison) Wisehart was born in Myrtle, Missouri on May 10, 1923.
God called her Home to Himself on September 29, 2019, while residing in West Vue Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in West Plains, Missouri.
Eulah made the most important decision of her life, her profession of faith in Jesus Christ as her Savior, when she was a young girl.
On August 19, 1948, Eulah was united in marriage with the one man who won her heart, Robert D. Payne (Bob). To their happy union two daughters, Patricia (Barger) and Marsha (Harter), and two sons, Kenton and David were born.
Bob preceded Eulah in death April 1989. Eulah was also preceded in death by her parents; three sisters, Eunice, Marie (Sutton), and Bernice (Cantrell); one son, David; one grandson, Daniel Mark Barger, and one great grandson, Jeremy McConville.
Eulah leaves to celebrate her memory, Pat and Don Barger of El Dorado Springs, Missouri; Marsha and Jim Harter of Nashville, Tennessee, and Kent and Ava Payne of Lees Summit, Missouri; seven grandchildren, Tricia Patrick, Steve Barger, Jennifer Ervin, Jamie Waters, Jeff Harter, Jessica Harter, and Lucas Payne, and ten great grandchildren.
Eulah was a long-time active member of First Freewill Baptist Church, West Plains. She served as a volunteer at the Ozarks Medical Center Hospital and the hospital thrift shop for over twenty-five years. Eulah loved the Lord, her family, and her church and will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her because our lives are better for having known her.
