Eunice Margaret Harper was born to George and Emma Tennon-Harper on December 30th, 1926 in Harlingen, Texas. Eunice was reared in Antioch Colony and is the third of eleven siblings. She attended the Antioch Church and Antioch school.

After becoming a young woman, Eunice moved to Austin and later to Dallas, Texas. While in Dallas Eunice met and married Johnny Lee Rimes. No children were born to this union.

In 1957 Eunice relocated to San Francisco, California and remained there until she moved back home to the Antioch Colony. While residing in San Francisco Eunice was a member of Friendship Missionary Baptist Church where she served faithfully as an usher. Eunice loved her church and she loved the Lord. She would often speak of the goodness of God, and she would always have her radio on a gospel station and she played it twenty four hours a day. Eunice worked hard and was an independent woman.

Having moved back to Antioch, Eunice became a member of Antioch Community Church and she served until her health would not allow her to serve any longer. Although Eunice had no birth children, she loved children. When she was able to get around independently she would always make sure she purchased cereals and popsicles for the many nieces and nephews in her neighborhood. There would be many week end nights she would have two or three young children at her home. She would not only keep them over night she would get them ready and take them to church on Sunday morning.

Eunice was preceded in death by her parents, George and Emma Harper, an older brother, George Harper, Jr. (Dump) two younger brothers, Joshua Harper, and Moses Ollie Joe Harper.

Eunice Margaret Rimes was loved by many, many people. She leaves to cherish her memories, five sisters: Marian Washington, Emily Hill, Ruth Fears, Mary Nelson (Ardell), and Martha Moyer, all of Antioch Colony; two brothers, Elijah Harper (Stubby), (Molett), and Leslie Harper (Les), both of Antioch Colony; one god son, Aubrey Fears, of Pflugerville; a nephew, LeeDell Bunton, Phoenix, AZ.
