Euleta was born, the daughter of Olga (Swenson) and John Popp, on August 1, 1926 in Custer County, NE. She graduated in 1944 from Broken Bow High School, Broken Bow, NE, and in 1949 graduated from St. Luke's Nursing School in Denver, CO. Euleta moved to Des Moines in 1955 and began her nursing career. She worked at Iowa Methodist Medical Center for 33 years and retired in 1988.

Euleta was an active member of Grace United Methodist Church, the Anna Circle with the United Methodist Women and a group of retired nurses from Iowa Methodist. Euleta also was a volunteer for the Festival Tree of Lights at Blank Children's Hospital. Euleta was very involved with her family, especially her nieces and nephews whom she loved as if they were her own. She never missed a birthday; she had a generous and loving spirit and was a caretaker to all. Euleta enjoyed traveling and fishing with her friends in Minnesota.

Euleta was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Margaret M. Popp; and brothers, Phillip H. and Conrad W. Popp. She is survived by brother, George (Doris) Popp of Mason City, NE; sister-in-law, Maxine Popp of Broken Bow, NE; sister, Katherine Harrison of Stockton, IL and Evelyn (Robert) Rausch of Lincoln, NE; nine nieces and four nephews and their families; 26 great-nieces and nephews; and her special friends, Maxine Robinson and Lois and Bernie Nystrom.
