Eulah Coleman Williams was born May 17, 1917 in Caldwell County, Texas. She was the last born of seven children to Richard and Ida Swain Coleman.

Eulah attended the Post Oak School and obtained her Bachelor's degree in Cosmetology and later her Master's degree from The Walker College of Hair Culture. She was the first African American woman in Austin to own her own hair salon. She was also the owner of a café in Giddings, Texas.

She was a member of the Texas State Association of Beauty Culturalist League and received many awards and trophies for her achievements. In her later years, she was asked by Austin Community College to speak on a consulting basis to the students, however she was not well enough to do so.

Eulah accepted Christ at an early age and was a member of St. Mary's Baptist Church. She later united with First Baptist Church and served faithfully.

In 1941, she was united in holy matrimony to Elijah Williams, Sr. who affectionately called her "Chappy". To this union two children were born, Elijah, Jr. and Eulah Lee.

She loved to travel, fish and was a true fashionista. She was always seen wearing her hat and gloves – a true lady.

Mrs. Eulah Coleman Williams departed this life on June 11, 2011. She was preceded in death by her parents, siblings, husband and granddaughter, Altovise Renee Williams.

She leaves precious memories to her son, Elijah Williams, Jr.; daughter Eulah Lee Williams; grandchildren, Cedric M. Dukes, Marina Peneda, Mariah Peneda; great grandchildren Kayla Dukes, Cory Dukes, Joey Dukes; two great great grandchildren, Jaden and Jayla; special cousin Mae Jewel Millican; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
